Hello again

I am in need of a piece of savvy advice:

Would the Ortofon FF-15D MKII fit the FF-15XE MK II cartridge?

If so, how better an option would it be as compared to the AT-95E?

Thanks in advance.

The stylus from the FF15D won't fit the body of the other Ortofon. With those older models you have to pay close attention to the back of the stylus assembly.
So I'd say go with the AT

Went and check this
Top stylus is the one your asking about bought stylus I'll assume is what you have.

I have an Ortofon FF15XE MkII cartridge, originally purchased new in '78. I recently ordered the F/FF stylus from LPGear, their P/N ORTSFF15XEMKII. It's an OEM Ortofon stylus of high quality and fits the FF15XE MkII body.

It's a fine cartridge and worth investing in a new stylus.
