I'm glad your chiming in Doug ! I will definately than look for NOS Empire stylus.
Do you, by any chance, have any specific info about the 999 XE/X ?
(On vinyl engine's database, there is no data filled in yet)
Oh, by the way , I finally found the wide WB 22 walnut base for my BIC.
The turntable really looks good with it's "new house"

Yes, definitely worth getting a NOS stylus if you can find one. It will add detail an aftermarket stylus usually can't deliver since the stylus mass is usually greater than the originals.
Empire was always very conscious about minimum stylus mass in their better cartridges.
