The Philips GP-401 was the lowest ranking elliptical member of the Philips SUPER-M high strength magnet family of cartridges. The accompanying stylus was the 946/D59. The cut of the tip was elliptical like that of the GP-412 big brother, but the suspension was identical to that of the spherical GP-400 entry level cartridge. This resulted in a cartridge that tracked better than the GP-400, but not as well as the GP-412, although the body is the same for all of them.

The original elliptical styli tracked at 1.75g - 3g. Unfortunately they are no longer available. Instead we offer excellent elliptical replacements from Tonar and JICO that both provide very good quality.

Upgrade Stylus for Philips GP-401

Since the cartridge body is shared throughout the SUPER-M family, the most obvious upgrade path for the GP-401 is to simply mount one of the styli meant for the GP-412 or GP-422. Alternatively, you can use the JICO SAS on Boron fine-line aftermarket stylus offered below to upgrade the cartridge beyond anything ever offered by Philips. The specified tracking force is 1g - 1.5g with 1.25g as the recommended optimum.
