I have long regarded Adamant styli as essential to the great sound Alchemy achieves with our cuts. We have invested significantly in our cutting lathes and working with John at Micro-Point and Adamant we now have styli that deliver the excellence we seek.

To meet our customers demand for excellence and to deliver on schedule, we need to work with totally reliable products. NSH-2 and NSH-2S guarantee clean grooves and excellent wear characteristics. And the addition of cutting styli for Westrex heads is welcomed. I have a fantastic relationship with John Rooke for a lot of years based on confidence and trust.

I finished testing the WSH-2S Micro-Point Cutting Stylus for Westrex yesterday, it is REALLY impressive.  The reproduced cut translates very well to the source.  There is less exaggerated bottom end, greater sense of stereo width and clearer, cleaner top end.
