Stylus - elliptical

Stylus shape - a conical (aka spherical) stylus will not track high frequencies as well as other shapes, and the contact patch with the grove walls (area where the diamond actually touches the vinyl) will be smaller than with other shapes, resulting in faster record wear. Advantages - since the stylus radii are the same in every direction, alignment of the cartridge in the arm is of much lower importance than with other shapes.
