It has come true, after almost 2 years delivery time the replacement needle for the Audio Technica ATN 13 EaV is now available:
It could hardly be better!
The postman has just brought a package from analogis. And I can hardly believe my eyes, long-awaited “treasures” are in it.
Stock types of the BLACK DIAMOND, which are now available again:
And these are new to it, yes it’s a Christmas miracle!
Photos and measurements will follow shortly
UPDATE 25 DEC:
Shure VN 35 sold out again after only a few hours, unbelievable!
Listening test DN 251 E Test verdict: terrific, absolute recommendation *****
UPDATE 27 DEC.:
Shure VN 15 E is not a genuine BLACK DIAMOND. The diamond is a real, clear, set diamond with an elliptical cut.
When I asked the supplier, they told me that this needle will no longer be available as BLACK DIAMOND in the long term, and that JICO will be offered as an elliptical needle as a replacement.
That was the shortest appearance of a BD so far. 🙂
UPDATE 29 DEC.:
We could still get a handful of SHURE VN 35! If these are sold, probably only around February 2021 again supply will come.
