What is the difference between a Shure VNSE5MR stylus and a Shure VN5MR? Which one was produced first? Is there a difference in sound between the two?
VNSE5MR was designed to fit the VST V - a Special Edition cartridge.
VN5MR was designed to fit the V15V-MR. It was produced first.
The styli can be interchanged.
We find nothing in the engineering specs to indicate that one stylus was better than the other.
