Shure VN5xMR Style Bliss Shibata Stylus for V15Vx series cartridges

SHIBATA bonded diamond needle for the Shure VN5xMR for the Shure V15 type V15VxMR cartridge. Ordering this part will net you a true Japanese shibata "VN5xMR" . It is a true shibata tip not originally offered by Shure at the time. A shibata tip is one step above a hyperelliptical tip and one step below the VN5xMR (micro ridge).  So, you can be confident, as we are, that this will do your prized Shure V15VxMR cartridge justice. 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.

Replaces or is found in:
  • SHURE CARTRIDGES V15VxMR will also fit the M97xE
  • Original needle color was: MAROON guard/BLACK body
  • top secret crosses: Can also fit the Shure V15-Pro-S, VST-III, and the RADIO SHACK, REALISTIC V15-RS
  • See the M78S needle below to play 78rpm in your V15VxMR

• stereo and mono ready - quadraphonic system not required to enjoy the near perfect sound reproduction that shibata tipped needles offer.
Shibata needles have maximum contact with the record groove, better than conical, elliptical and hyperelliptical tips.
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 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.
This stylus is designed for the V15VxMR and can also be a massive upgrade for the M97xE cartridge. Note however that the M97xE body is not quite the same (internally/electrically) as the V15VxMR body so this will not upgrade the M97xE to the exact same level as the V15VxMR cartridge mounted with the VN5xMR stylus was. It will, however be a very significant improvement.

Very niiiiiiiiiice
Always nice to get a new stylus. I’ve tried a few including an eliotical. But this one is really pretty great. Sounds soo good, not just clear but musical. I’m having a blast going through the collection to hear everything fresh again.
