BTW those SAS styli do have tension wire.You’re right, my mistake. I took a picture of JICO SAS recently, before i sold it. This is the backside of the JICO’s replacement stylus assembly. Here is the structure of the jico sas from the manual. And this is a side the view of Jico SAS cantilever.
The original Technics looks way different than Jico. The side view of the original is completely different from jico.
But the Axel’s rebuilded Technics is another story. The backside of the replacement stylus assembly is way different from jico and from the original. The side view on cantilever is close to jico (same metal collar around the boron cantilever), probablly the same boron cantilever, but the diamond is bigger (higher). For some reason preffer Axel’s elliptical stylus compared to Jico SAS. Axel’s rebuilded version of replacement stylus it’s closer to the original sound of 205ED4 (mk4). The original i've recently sold, even with aged suspension, is much better than everything (jico sas or axel) !
Dear chakster, I missed somehow the picture by your contribution
from 09-14-2016. This picture shows the back side of the tube
in which tension wire is centered and tightened. You assumed
that the tension wire is removed but the little ''tail'' at the end of
the tube IS the end of the tension wire. With this end or ''tail'' the
wire is tightened and after that glued to the tube end. What both
Axel and Andy try to do is further tightening of the ''tail''.
However tension wire is not the suspension we are talking about.
That is the rubber ring as by each other cart. I already explained
that removing and exchanging this rubber ring is not possible
without removal of the tesnison wire , magnet and cantilever.
But the real problem is to put all those parts back in the tube as
well tightend the tension wire thereafter.
