Where music starts.

Since 1995, LP GEAR® has been serving the record-playing community via the Internet. Ever since that time we have been enhancing the musical enjoyment of customers in North America and in many parts of Asia, Australia, and the European Community who otherwise would have been unable to enjoy music through their turntables. After all, how can one play a record via a belt-drive turntable without a working belt. We're being facetious but we do have a point don't we.

LP Gear continues its specialization on turntable belts—a unique service in that we have the most extensive variety of correct belts for turntables in the known planet. Since then, we've expanded our selection of cartridges, styli and needles. Our success in this area has transformed us into one of the planet's leading providers of replacement styli for magnetic cartridges. Consistent with our pursuit of perfect quality and superiority, we have become an OEM of world class cartridges and replacement styli. To serve the audio community even further, we are expanding our music reproduction portfolio to include select brands of audio electronics, tubes and accessories.

We enjoy music and are committed to perfecting your music listening experience. We take every component to its highest level of significance and strive for perfection. Within a music system, each part in the chain plays a role of highest significance.

LP Gear's history is intertwined with the resurgence of vinyl record playing and for this and other compelling reasons, we surmise: This is where music starts.

No more IGD

Maybe a little expensive but works really great and sounds good. Fixed all IGD

Why LP Gear?

You are one of the few that carry the stylus for my Shure cartridge.

Product Choice

A great alternative stylus to the now unavailable OEM. Better than the original.

Kenneth - 12/26/2020

The LP Gear N97xVL stylus brings a much flatter response than the Sure N97XE. The Sure version rolls off the highs which I do not like. The Bass, Mids and Highs are more pronounced with the LP Gear N97xVL but balanced well and not harsh. As one reviewer mentioned, the surface noise is noticeably lower than the original Sure stylus as well. For the price, there is no better stylus for my turntable. LP Gear shipped the unit quickly and it arrived 2 days later with expedited shipping. If you need a replacement for your Sure N97XE stylus, you would be very happy with the N97xVL. Thank You LP Gear...

Why LP Gear?

I chose LP Gear because they offer replacement Styli that are available for my discontinued Sure Stylus, They carry all sorts of turntables and other audio products. This isn't the first purchase from LP Gear and it won't be the last.

Product Choice

The N97xVL is a better stylus than the original and at a better price. Is is a great value.

Wondered if I would really hear the difference between the Shure replacement and the ViVid Line upgrade. Wow! Really sounds better. Wish I had made the switch a long time ago

why Trust Verified Reviews?

Verified Reviews are real, authentic reviews collected from actual paying customers, using Shopper Approved's Verified Review Platform. When reviews are Verified by Shopper Approved, you know that you can trust them to make better buying decisions.

Unverified Reviews on the other hand, are reviews collected by Open Review platforms that allow anyone to leave a review, without any validation or proof of purchase. Unfortunately, most reviews you read online are Unverified Reviews, and can't be trusted.

As a consumer, here's how you can tell the difference:

Verified Reviews from Verified Review Platforms like Shopper Approved, have much higher review counts and higher overall Star ratings, because they attempt to collect reviews from every single paying customer.

Unverified Reviews from Open Review Platforms, tend to have much lower review counts and more negative Star ratings, because people with bad experiences are primarily those who leave reviews. This often creates a misleading, inaccurate portrayal of a companies true reputation.

So, when searching for Verified Reviews, look for the name you know you can trust. Shopper Approved.
