Just purely for personal use BBB, I figured would be good to have a spare replacement stylus ready, so for £175 you can't go wrong!
Should not be a problem if purchase from one of the bigger Japanese firms that use Ebay.
I bought my cartridge that way and saved a fortune on UK prices.(Roughly half-price).

Those prices are great, I saw a MP-500 for less than £300, and they're over £600 on Amazon, but they still aren't selling.
I'm just thinking about my pricing, and I definitely couldn't compete with that MP-500 price, but I could definitely get close to the price you paid for the MP-200 though.
I've got to be careful with mods here, so I'll say no more.
Maybe should have been posted in the 'Hot Deals' subforum.
Well not the saving I was hoping for, it arrived today but I had to pay £63 import duty so total was £246.11, quick delivery though and it was well packed.
Aye, 63 clams for a quick delivery cant be bad can it
Well Divine Audio are listing them at £340
Analogue Seduction were listing them at £289 but they have disspeared off their website.
Probably saved £50
Should have asked them to write 'Happy birthday', on the outside of packet.
Lol , I reckon Al intercepts my texts to you Steve.
al ears is a subsiduary of the NSA.
Pah ,so much for not being able to hack into the Blackberry network
Send a dozen red roses and I'll say no more about your Blackberry.
Should have come to BBB Steve.
