I use a Shure V15 Type IV phono cartridge on my Harman/Kardon Rabco ST-7 straight line tracking turn table. Both the turn table and the cartridge are still performing extremely well, even after all these years. I have come across a bunch of old 78 RPM records that I would like to transfer onto CDs. In the booklet that came with the cartridge, it says that the VN-478E styli is what I should use for my needs. Checking your catalogue, this styli is not listed, therefore, I presume no longer available. However, there is mention that the N78S styli is for playing 78 RPM records and it should fit all currant cartridges. My question is, would a N78S styli fit into my V15 Type IV cartridge, and would it work to satisfaction.
No, the N78S will not work with the V15 Type IV.
The N78S replacement stylus will only work with these current and discontinued Shure cartridges:
