.:Bliss Brand Shibata Stylus for Shure VN5MR:.

SHIBATA diamond needle for entire Shure VN5 series found on the Shure V15 type V series of cartridges.
The shibata-shapped tip not originally offered by Shure at the time. A shibata tip is one step above the obsolete Shure VN5HE and one step below the VN5MR. 

Most closely replaces:
• SHURE NEEDLE VN5MR which was a "Micro-Ridge".
Original needle color is usually: BLACK/SILVER/MAROON

This assembly is made in Japan. The factory has been in continuous operation making needles for over 50 years. So, you can be confident, as we are, that this will do your prized V15-V series cartridge justice. It has a man-made bonded round shank diamond on a telescoping hardened aluminum.  This method of construction gives it the best cost vs performance ratio available; especially necessary due to the extra expense incurred from the suspension brush mechanism. This shibata tipped needle will transform any compatible cartridge with a lesser-equipped stylus into a high end playback solution capable of exceptionally faithful, clear and true sound reproduction.

For any type of quadraphonic (4-channel) record playback, be it of the discrete (CD-4) or matrix (SQ) variety, in addition to this quality shibata stylus, the following components of a complete quad system must all be present and in working order:

  1. A Cartridge sold originally as being capable of 4-channel playback.
  2. A Record originally pressed with decodable information for channels 3 and 4 that is still in good condition. A record that is too worn will lose it's ability to provide the high carrier frequency needed for the amp to decode the rear channels even though you may still be able to hear the two primary left and right channels just fine. The record jacket will clearly advertise (brag) about this capability if it is present.
  3. A receiver or amplifier with the needed circuitry which is still functional. Capacitors and edge-connector connections often fail in these circuits leaving them no longer capable of decoding the rear channels 3 and 4.
  4. and of course 4 speakers hooked up correctly and situated in the 4 corners of a standard listening room.

• NOTE: Because this needle is designed for use specifically with SHURE cartridges, it can be found in numerous brands of turntables. In some cases the cartridges for this needle may be original equipment supplied with a new turntable, but was also likely to have been selected at time of sale to complete a turntable sold without a cartridge or later as an upgrade to the original cartridge supplied by the turntable manufacturer. This needle should be matched primarily to the SHURE cartridge type not necessarily the turntable.

Shure type v replacement stylus
Excellent needle. Would purchase again. Worth the few extra dollars to get the best replacement for my old cartridge. Tech/ sales folks at TN were fantastic to work with.

Love It!
I got this for my Shure V15RS cartridge. With this stylus the cartridge sounds like new and the detail in the music is awesome.
