I was out on my motorbike in the national park. Caught a look but not a good one. Enough to say it looked very good.
Was not until i searched later that I discovered what it was.
Looked like a P1800 but wasn't , had me confused.
Serious money though.

Nah P1800s should be white with a stickman saint on the bonnet.



Attached to get back on topic is one of my top 5 MMs, the lesser spotted Denon DL-109. If I can get confirmation it can be retipped this could be my daily driver.

Another alternative is having your cartridge rebuilt / retipped right here in the USA using the best materials / diamond profiles.

Maybe have a look for some reviews to get a feel.
I have one (not in use now since I’m using a Denon DL103 MC on an SME 3009 II).

It was originally a black but when removing it from a project TT to mount it on the SME one of the pins came out.

On @billshurv’s recommendation I bought a Red and simply used the Black stylus.

Great sound I have to say!

I only skipped over some postings so forgive me if things have been said before.

First: Although SAS Needles come very close the Original V15VMR Needle still is slightly better. Only the SAS/R is close to the real thing.

Second: The V15V is hard to beat in a Project 9c/9cc/ 9cc Evo Arm. It's a near perfect match. If you want to stay with the same Soundcharacter a Benz Wood SL would be a real upgrade, if your MC Preamp is good enough (avoid Stepups it will not work well with the benz for most of them). Hint: Use a Stevenson Alignment for best results with this Arm & Cart!!!

One real alternative and a very well kept NOS MM secret is a Sony XL-50 with either Original or SAS/B Needle, that is imho a (slight) upgrade over your cart. The Sony XL-70 with original needle is extremely close to he Benz, but unobtainium.

Another "Sidegrade and very good match if you want to try MC is a AT-OC9/III which is very slightly leaner sounding, but also a very good match to the Project arm (one of the few higher compliance MCs!).

I'm not aware of any MM / MI which can be bought new (not NOS) which really outperforms a V15V with Jico SAS/R (and more so original Needle).

Thank you. Some good information there. My Valve phono stage is for MM only so it would have been a SUT had I gone the MC route.

I have a NOS stylus for a Sony. It was bought many years back incorrectly. Unfortunately not for an XL 50

OK, I have taken some photos of my B&O carts. See If I can upload them.

I used a pocket camera. Olympus TG6 which has a built in focus stacking setting. I could do better with a DSLR and proper lighting but this was quicker.
