    That little dynamic stabilizer brush thing that Don, ahem, says doesn't exist ;) B) is a neat little design. (just ribbin' ya Don! that was a great gesture!)

    When my brain goes dead it goes dead. Lol. I was picturing the V15s in my puny mind for some unknown reason. Plus, technically it’s not a “brush”

    Umm, some "generations" of the venerable V15 from Shure had a brush, it will be recalled

    B)

    If it wasn’t for the V on the 2nd cart, I would probably think that is a M97xE.

    sure it has a flat response, and sure it has a lot of detail, and yes, it has good and clear lows. But is it enjoyable to listen to? Does it make you grin ear to ear? That’s what really matters.

    How long before you have to clean the brush included on the Shure cart?

    There is always some sort of carpet fiber strand or fuzz on it after playing an album.

    I use the brush on the stylus after every record. I also use the record brush on every record before playing it.

    ^^so do I, can't get them all, and if you play with the lid up and move about the room you are bound to stir something up, or there would be no need for stylus or record brushes.

    Ha ha, good catch but only Type III around here which of course were sans “brush.” Went through a bunch of them in the day. Actually, I have a Type IV in storage with a broken tip but I didn’t recall it having a “brush”. Now I’ll have to pull it out to check. Never used the “brush” on the IV if, in fact, the brush is still intact. Really always preferred the III.

    never owned a Shure V15; wouldn't have minded trying one but they were too 'spensive back when -- and now they're gone. :|

    They're not "gone," but usually the stylus is shot when you find them - seems like the last time I did it I got a JICO SAS stylus (which have gotten super expensive) - or a guy could otherwise re-tip (NOT talking about most of the aftermarket styluses which stink.) The cart bodies are around. Sometimes you even find them on cheap Craiglist TT's, etc. The V15's match up real well with certain TT's especially, Dual 1229 and various Technics come to mind. One of my first, if not my first TT was a Garrard Zero 100C and I put a Type III on that IIRC, anyway a long relationship with that iteration followed. As far as the M97xE, Michael Fremer wrote a while back about a JICO SAS stylus giving the M97xE a "shot of adrenalin."
