I had a few bits lying around, so thought I would have a bit of fun.

Basically, I stripped down an old AT95 body I had, superglued in into the spare Denon 103 body I had sitting here, and then cut the stylus down to fit.

It ended up looking like this.

I am now thinking about adding the VMN-95ML stylus to it, as it sounds better than it should.

maybe you could try something even more exotic for the body?

How about a piece of coral or rare hardwood or moonrock? LOL  Sure it would sound better Smile  Sure it would sound out of this world!

I have actually decided to try an AT20SLa. I managed to get an original for the same price as a Paratrace stylus for the AT95, so figured this was the best move.

I have just ordered an AT15SS stylus to go with this little beauty.

The ATN15SS arrived today, (giving me an AT17.5SLaSS?).
I have plugged it in, and checked that the VTF is ok, at 1.5g.
Time to spin some black stuff....

A minor update. The AT20SS has been doing service on my T/T fit a while. I am very happy with it, and it is one of my favourite MM cartridges. I have a choice of three top notch MM now, the AT20SS, The AT150mlx and my Technics EPC-205 with Jico Neo SAS stylus.

I keep meaning to try it with the loan scheme Accession MM, but that keeps getting sent out for people to trial.

I think my MM side is sorted now, so I think I need to start saving some pennies for a much better MC than I currently have, although I don’t think it will be a major step up in performance.

Read great things about those Technics carts but never actually heard one. Lots of vintage AT models that people seem to like as well.
