I need a replacement Stylus for a Shure V15Vb cartridge.

I've had a Shure V15Vb Cartridge on a Dual CS5000 since 1986. I've logged thousands of hours on this combination. I hadn't used it for the last year while I was in the midst of buying/renovating an apt. Now it's time to get it tuned up.

After so many hours I figure it will perform better if I replace the stylus. Shure stopped making them correct?

Can anyone recommend a replcement option?

The JICO SAS VN5MR is $145 and is about the best, but not optimal, solution. A retip of the stylus by Soundsmith is another option but runs about $250.

I'm with jackfish, the JICO is getting rave reviews.

Google Audio Asylum and browse the "Vinyl" forums, lots of commentary on the new JICO.
