    I've finished experimenting and put my Pickering XSV3000 on my 1229 and put the Ortofon and Shure back in reserve.

    I'm using a Shure V15-IV cart on an Thorens TD160 TT.
    I bot it used, and it was originally spec'd and set up by a reputable shop in Toronto. (Bay Bloor Audio). The weird thing is, the V15 has too high a compliance for the TP16 tonearm.
    Its a very nice sounding cart; Linda Rhonstad's voice is beautiful, so I had to do some tonearm mass mods to get it down to a mass that paired with the V15. It ended up at about 8.5 - 9 hz, just within the tolerance.

    I just swapped out my Shure V15LT/JICO N45 SAS for an ADC PSX-40 with a RPSX-30 stylus. It's the first time I've used this combo, and it sounds great on the Technics SL-MA1. I think I'll leave it on for a while.

    I bought the stylus from a guy who apparently imports stylus to Sweden and resells online. He claims it's a Jico made elliptical. I have my doubts... But it's definitely worth the 20 bucks I paid him.

    The cartridge is a M75B. But it takes elliptical stylus all right.

    IDK about yours, but yes, JICO does make "generic", 0.3x0.7 mil elliptical styli... And mine too, it was originally 75B which was converted to ED/T2 without any problems. Cart is always the same anyway, it's the stylus that makes all the difference ... at least when it comes to M75 that is... :)

    This is my daily driver. Yamaha GT 2000 with Technics EPC 100C MK3.

    This cartridge is said to have the world's smallest effective moving mass @ 0.098mg which is made possible by using a pure boron tapered pipe cantilever.

    It has an extremely wide, flat frequency response of 5Hz to 100kHz and sounds fantastic.

    @ateal - That's drool-worthy.

    "my daily driver" he says. Green with envy, I am. :p

    Right now, a cheap and wonderful sounding Nagaoka MP-110. I plan an upgrade in the future, but for now it is doing the job!

    I've been on a Stanton & Pickering roll lately. Currently listening to my Pickering SE-1 with a Jico conical tip.
