Mario has provided a good present-day suggestion. However, my own preference is different, and closer to what you originally asked about.
What I suggest is that you buy a used Shure M75 cartridge body and then buy an excellent aftermarket stylus for it. Many people have been happy with styli from Jico. Another option is to have a used Shure stylus re-tipped by Expert Stylus, in England. Their range of diamonds is unmatched, and the quality of their work is outstanding. The choice of original Shure needles for this cartridge body was quite good.
The Shure cartridge bodies are not difficult to find (I may even have one that I can sell, too. Let me know if you're interested). There are also bodies that are identical or similar to the M75 with which you can use the same needles. For example, a Shure M91 body will work perfectly with M75 needles; it will just look a bit strange. The M91 and M75 cartridges are identical; they just have a different appearance (and M91 needles will not fit the M75 body). The same cartridge was sold with one or more different standard numbers by Shure when fitted with heavier-tracking tyli, and a great many more of them were sold with fake "private brand" designations. I do not have the "genuine" model numbers handy and I don't have them memorized.
I prefer the Shure stylus design because, in my experience, the Shure-type needles are much stronger than the Audio Technica styli. AT needles must be handled with respect; I have seen too many of them bent or broken. A member of the Lenco Lovers web site (the predecessor to LR) once sent in photos of Shure needles made after they built a factory in Mexico; his photos showed styli that were substantially downgraded in quality, so I cannot recommend late original Shure needles.
For people who live in Europe, I also like to recommend Ortofon, who are still making a fine range of cartridges and replaceable styli. _________________ Richard Steinfeld Author of The Handbook for Stanton and Pickering Cartridges and Styli
