It has a square keyway and a matt finish grey body. I have ordered a F15e stylus.
I've got what I think is an genuine Ortofon NOS F15 mkii and a used FF15 E ,which I ordered like you for an unidentified cartridge. I'll send them both to you as I won't be using them.

Re: The Postman / Royal Mail

What sort of eeeediot puts an item that they are supposed to be delivering into a receptacle designed for waste items :-?

Doc has said it before but I will reiterate, UPS through Interparcel is far safer and more efficient than Royal Mail and usually cheaper too in my experience.

Re: Pioneer PL-71 refurbishment (Stu Version)

Re: mains block and equipment cable

I wonder how many cables can be wired into a standard plug? Obviously it depends on the size of the cable but if it could be done it would take the extension block out of the equation and reduce the amount of connections needed. I have used one of those 4 way plugs in the past but can't say that I n...

Re: Speakers for my new A20+P20 Sys

I have used JPW, gold monitor, Sonata, AP3 and Doc modded P1 speakers with my NVA amps and thoroughly enjoyed them all of them up until the point that I managed to try a pair of Epos speakers with them. The Gold minitors with the resistor changed to bring the high frequencies down a touch are surpri...

Oh come on guys, where's your holiday spirit? Free fitting is included !

"Excluding expenses" so not really free at all. Imagine the price of an air ticket and possibly a night's stay in a hotel as well if they were to go to a buyer outside of Europe :-?

Re: TIS between cdp and preamp

I've just read the collected information the NVA reviews thread. Thanks for the info Stu, a nice review overall. It looks like I need to reappraise my TIS now that I am happy with my CDP. It currently has SSP mk2 connecting it to the amp which I am very happy with but in order to use the TIS some re...

Re: Black Friday

Well done Doc.

I managed to resist temptation, although it wasn't easy with so many great bargains to be had. It's just as well for my bank balance that you don't list TIS on eBay any more or you probably would have had another order.

Re: A70 monoblocks v AP70 Integrated

I own an AP70 and I had the SA fitted at a later date, this made a nice improvement, not night and day as far as sound quality is concerned in my opinion but certainly worthwhile (and it is hard to compare side by side). The biggest benefit was that it removed the channel imbalance at low levels tha...
