Preferred brand new, but someone who has upgraded to a more expensive one and willing to let go of a decent cart in excellent condition is welcome.

BUYING, SELLING or TRADING indicates your automatic and mandatory acceptance of HiFiVISION.COM Trading Rules and Guidelines!


Do not blindly trust every seller or buyer! Protect yourself by following the below safe trading tips.

Safety Tips

For Buyers

  1. Always meet the seller at a safe location and inspect the item before purchasing. Following this one rule will help you avoid most scams.
  2. Watch out for unrealistic offers. If it appears too good to be true, it probably is. Unrealistic offers are used to motivate purchasers to make hasty decisions.
  3. Always verify the seller's credentials. Ask the seller to provide a photo ID and proof of address.
  4. Ensure that the product you are buying is not stolen or fake. Always ask for a purchase invoice.
  5. The best way to transact is to collect the item and pay at the same time. Never transfer funds or use a debit/credit/atm card to pay someone you do not know before collecting an item.
  6. Ask for clear information on condition of the item, price, payment and delivery method.
  7. Use only those payment methods that you trust and are familiar with. Never give out your financial information.
  8. It is recommended to purchase items directly from the seller.
  9. Always test the functioning of the item before purchase.
  10. Do your research on comparative prices for the product.

For Sellers

  1. Try to take the full payment at the time of the delivery. Remember to use a safe location to meet.
  2. Watch out for fake currency and money orders. Be aware that banks will not honour fake currency/money order and will hold you responsible for it.
  3. Verify the buyer’s credentials if necessary.
  4. Ensure that your product meets the features you list in your ad to avoid any misunderstanding with the buyer.
  5. It is your responsibility to prove that the product you are selling is genuine and not stolen by providing the necessary proof of purchase.
  6. Do not share your financial information except the one required for payment.

how to figure out whether it will match the technics?

I was using it on my Technics SL 1300 TT. The tone arms for the 1300 and 1700 is similar.

I upgraded to the shure M97xE that's why i'm willingto leggo of this.

In my opinion though, if you can sepend about 5-6K go for a shure m 97xe... Its a way better sounding thingee...

But for about 1500 the sony does its job fairly well too....

Hi

Replaceing a V15 stylus is simple.You just pull out the old one and replace with the new.


There are several replacements available.
Stylus For Shure V15 Type 3 HE Cartridge

However the best is the Jico stylus.

Jico Super Analogue Stylus (S.A.S.) replacement for the Shure VN-35HE VN 35HE VN35HE record stylus, Shure VN-35E VN 35E VN35E needle stylus, and Shure VN-35MR VN 35MR VN35MR phonograph stylus for the Shure V-15 V 15 V15 Type III phono cartridges

You can also search on ebay.

shure v15 stylus, great deals on Electronics, Musical Instruments on eBay!

Regards
Rajiv

thanks Rajiv and Malvai. What I am also concerned about is the weight of the cart. Will my tonearm be able to support with the taping solution that mahiruha had to do?

For 97xE, or the other 2 carts being mentioned here.

regards
