I reviewed this thread and I covered only two of the cartridges and turntables - Pioneer PL-630 with Pickering XSV-4000 and Dual 1229Q with Shure V-15 III. I can add to that.

Nice to see those cartridges and history associated with them, Tony.

Now that I reviewed the thread, Nav's post sticks out:

I have discovered the magic of the Shure M91ED cartridge. To start with I have paired it with the Jico elliptical stylus and have a new standard conical stylus as a spare. Plan to upgrade to Jico SAS with Sapphire or Boron cantilever.

I heard a few of these in vinyl channels on youtube and was impressed. When I heard it in person was even more impressed. Its amazing in the bass department. It has quite a high output, am running it through the PL P3600 preamp, thats a nice phono stage. Love the sound of this cart.

I still have the V15 type 3 on the Thorens TD 160 Super.

Had not looked at cartridge pricing in quite a while. Wow they have shot up in price a lot. Even the more lowly AT cartridges are pricey. Must be taking advantage of pricing to market with the current turntable pricing.

Makes me wish I'd held onto all the cartridges I accumulated when dealing HiFi. There were dozens. Employee discount meant next to nothing to buy and some were free from dealer reps.

Thought I did OK selling them three of four years ago but had no inkling values would escalate to what they are now.
