About Us

Mantra Audio was established in 1989 as a retailer of cartridges, styli and other Hi-Fi accessories for the vinyl enthusiast. If you have any suggestions or comments please email


The majority of styli are now no longer available as original equipment and unless stated 'Original', the replacement styli supplied are precision manufactured in Switzerland to high quality standards that ensure performance closely matches original as detailed. Many of these styli were fitted to universal cartridge types commonly used by the many manufacturers of turntables and record players. Stylus part numbers and colours described are original and these may vary on supply according to supplier package labelling and manufacturer rationalisation for limited production runs. The stylus shown are only suitable for the Original cartridge fitted by the manufacturer of the player and not if the cartridge has been replaced. Please check that the stylus shape shown is the same as the one fitted, although the colour of the plastic may be different.

The currency converter is only an indicator and should not be relied upon to give an exact conversion as rates change daily and will vary with actual rates applied by credit card companies on the date of transaction.
