    I was over at Grant's place the other day . He's using a Shure M55E with a NOS stylus and it sounded excellent .

    I like them. The various M75's and the M91ED are my favourites.

    I like to visit my forum friends Andy . I was also delivering a valve to him for his DAC . Most of the troops up here live quite close and they all have gear I enjoy listening to

    I preferred my M75-6S over the M55 E with a Jico stylus. It just did everything right - gutsy and more heft. The great thing is that they are cheap enough to do a bit of experimenting.

    The thing is that it has itself been ousted by an even cheaper cart

    I'm a big fan of the Shure SC35C, which admittedly needs a heavy arm but really sings with rock music. The Shure M3D is a bit more refined, I had one with a Jico stylus and currently have one with an original Shure stylus (quite rare these days). Both are superb, though work in quite different setups to the others mentioned.

    I also use an M44 with special wide tips for 78.
    Main: Speakers 'RFC' Tannoy Canterburys / custom crossovers; Amp - Radford STA100; Pre EAR 912; Vinyl: Thorens TD124 MkII + Ikeda IT345-CR1 / Ikeda IT-407 tonearms; Cartridges Stereo - Miyajima Madake, Ortofon SPU Royal N, Ikeda 9C III, SAEC/Excel C3; Mono - Miyajimas - Zero 0.7, Premium 1.0, Sonovox MC-4 1.0, Edison '78' 4.0 conical, and Shure M44 strapped for mono with several Expert Stylus conicals for different eras of 78s; Phono stage and SUT from EAR 912; Esoteric Sound Re-Equalizer for equalisation of early mono and 78, switchable in from tape loop; Digital: Audio Note CDT2/II transport, heavily modded AN Kit DAC + Mutec MC3+USB.

    Study: Speakers - Tannoy DC6; Amp: Pass Aleph 'Mini'; preamp - Firebottle custom; Vinyl: Garrard 401 with AT1503 tonearm and vintage Ortofon SL-15e with matching Ortofon 2-15k SUT; Phono Stage: Firebottle Plus; Digital - Trichord Genesis III CDP + Arcam rBlink; Schiit Multibit DAC.

    M55E, M75ED, V15 III. Owned them all. Cracking cartridges which can show a clean pair of heels to many modern MM offerings.
