I found that JICO makes a decent stylus as well. That said, I find them 
to be a bit harsher sounding than the (no longer available) original 
stylus. This is particularly true of their elliptical styluses which 
seem to point out every possible flaw with the disc. However, that can 
also be a good thing.

Still, my favorites are those made by Expert Stylus.
