After 35 years away I returned to vinyl 18 months ago, as luck would have it, after some online searching and buying I ended up with (2) Shure V15 iiis' (amongst a couple of others) ;) , both excellent. 1 of them is the plastic body version, the other is metal.The metal one came to me without a stylus so now it has a new (100 hours) $80 Jico from japan / e bay, sounds great. The plastic bodied one has (I believe ?) an original factory stylus, imaybe sounds a little better then the metal bodied Jico, Id like an upgrade so Im thinking if anyone has never tried a V15iii and is interested in either of my V15s' we might work out a cash / trade deal ? I am keeping 1 so only 1 is available, but I am happy to add up to about $200 (paypal) if the cart you are offering in trade is more expensive ? I will listen to any and all offers, I like both my V15s but I cant help imagine what a well used (400 + hours) $750+ cart might sound like, and both my V15s sound similar.
