What is the price for re-tipping these days? and it is trustworthy?
I can't comment on these specific carts/styli.

But, I have looked at a replacement stylus a few times in the past, and the cost of the stylus vs. the price of a new cart never made any sense to me! I guess if a new stylus for an iconic cart was the only option, then it makes sense.

But, case in point, when the Shure M97xe was announced to be discontinued, I looked into a stylus price vs. the full cart, and bought the full cart.

I didn’t know it was discontinued. Whoa I liked that cart when I had it. I need to get that Denon MC. Maybe next year.

Not just the one model, Shure got out of the cartridge biz altogether two or so years ago....

Dang I didn’t know that either. I guess the only way to find them is on eBay now. At least we still have other great companies making great carts.

Just after the announcement the prices went up 2-3x on the M97xE.....and replacement styli are pricey, too. At the rate I use mine, won't need to worry about replacing it....

I have an M97xe in service on my SL1210, and one new in box (opened the box to inspect it).

When they made the announcement, I immediately bought a spare, before prices started going up.

I have a 2M Red in service that came stock on my Pro-Ject.

I had found on Amazon one back then for a spare but they kept cancelling my order and raising the price....but at maybe an hour or two a month.....

All I want is a 2M Red again and Denon 103. Hopefully next year.

Xmas LP lot. I found these today at my thrift store. All in minty condition. Any Grant is still sealed! Hopefully I can find Nat and Elvis. Never seen Oklahoma, but Shirley Jones is singing so why not? The Sting I saw as a teen, so I don’t remember it well. Theme is famous though. Streisand cause why not?

Hi guys! These any good. A lot of my $1-2 thrift vinyl don’t have inner sleeves or are torn. These any good?
Don’t wanna spend more than $15. Rank you.
