THE SOURCE OF PERFECTION IN STEREO SOUND ... PICKERING'S ALL NEW XSV/3000.
It features a totally unique construction (developed by Pickering through our pioneering efforts in discrete, 4-channel) plus a totally new stylus tip shape, the Stereohedron, which has superior tracing ability and assures longer stylus and record life!
This new cartridge makes possible a wider, more open, finer sound because it maximizes stereo tracing capabilities with the slightest, lightest touch a record ever had. It increases record life because force is spread over a greater contact area. And that means the least record wear achievable in these times (with a stereo cartridge).

SECTION "A-A" THRU SECTION "B-B" THRU ELLIPTICAL STYLUS STEREOHEDRON STYLUS CONTACT LINE AT RECORD CONTACT LINE AT RECORD
Conventional elliptical styli have a relatively limited bearing radius at the contact area with the groove. The Stereohedron combines the elliptical and Quadrahedron concepts to create a stylus having a larger bearing contact radius at the area in order to reduce stylus wear and prolong record life.
