pickering cartriidge xv 15 any good.

i have this to try  what do  you think?  thanks-
No, it's not good, the cheapest model.
If you want the best look for XSV-3000, 4500, 5000, 7500 models from this brand, they are all superb (nude Stereohedron Stylus). 
hi chakster....confused about your response to my xv15 pickering cartridge.
What do you mean by the best look?
I was inquiring about the sound. 
Sorry @rocky1313 , i mean if you want the best then look for Pickering XSV-3000 or higher models in the Pickering line. It’s not about how the looks like, but about the sound.

Your XV-15 is entry level Pickering, just the basics, nothing special. Any model from XSV-3000 and higher are much better (different generator, different cantilever, different stylus profile), the XSV-5000 and XSV-7500 are truly amazing cartridges.
Fantastic cartridge! It is the equivalent of the Stanton 681 which was used to master many records back then. There are a lot of options as far as replacement stylus with a many decent after market ones. Give it a try and you will be surprised...
BTW the XV15 was never the cheapest of the Pickering. On the contrary it was top of the line, till it was replaced by other models.
