The spherical Philips GP-400 was the entry level member of the Philips SUPER-M high strength magnet series. All members of the series, which also comprised the elliptical GP-401 and GP-412 and the SST shaped GP-422, shared the same generator structure and physical shape and can therefore use the same styli. Please find the most direct replacements as well as the best upgrade options listed below.

Upgrade stylus for Philips GP-400

The body/generator structure of the SUPER-M family is really quite good. Fine results can be obtained by coupling it with more advanced and/or modern stylus types. The replacements suggested for the more sophisticated members of the SUPER-M family are all good upgrade options, but The JICO SAS fine-line stylus suggested below is really the ultimate upgrade for the GP400 SUPER-M family. The recommended tracking force is 1g - 1.5g with 1.25g as the suggested optimum. The Shibata is not nearly as good, but very price-worthy.
