The Elliptical Stylus

An elliptical stylus, also called a bi-radial stylus, has a dual radii design, and it can make contact with a larger groove area upon a record’s surface. So, it’s a little more precise than a conical stylus. An elliptical stylus has some improved frequency response, lower distortion and improved phase response. Because a record’s inner grooves are hard to track, an elliptical stylus might be one’s best bet when targeting deeper, richer sounds a record can provide. On the downside, however, an elliptical stylus wears down quicker than a conical stylus, while also requiring precise alignment so they are resting perfectly in the record’s groove.
