i was told ellipitcal is the shape of the needle itself..it fills up the grooves so the covering the walls (where more of the music is).
very old needles on crankup phonographs used a needles that came
to a pointy head on the same order as what this threads about..they
were litterally "real needles"...

ok..but in your responce you mentioned ellipitcal point needles and you
never mentioned diamond ones..which one is better?


I'm sure you're probably going to get the same response from about 237 people but why should I be left out?

"Elliptical" is a shape, not a material.  Mind you "ellipitcal" as far as I know is neither a shape or a material - I guess it's probably a typo.
