Using the V15VxMR on a Realistic LAB-395

FAQ #2211 Updated October 16, 2008

Question:

I am thinking of replacing the cartridge on my LAB-395 Realistic turntable with the V15VXMR . The original specifications in the service manual for this turntable state the tonearm supports a minimum tracking force of 1.5 grams. The specifications for the V15VXMR state it should be tracked at 1 gram. Could I run into any problems with the tonearm if I set the tracking force this low?

Answer:

It would be a mistake and a waste of your money. The tone arm is too massive for the V15VxMR.
The M97xE cartridge tracking at 1.5 grams would be a better match to the tonearm.
