Victor X1 IIE question

I'm thinking of buying the JVC Victor X-1 with DT-X1 IIE Stylus and titanium cantilever. Would this be better than the JICO Shibata? Thanks.
If i have a spare backup unit i can let it go, ideally i want a NOS sample of each cartridge in my collection, when i can upgrade to NOS unit i can sell my backup, always like that. Happy to help  

The better and much more expensive cartridge is definitely X-1IID (Beryllium/Shibata) factory pre-mounted on Victor headshell, this cartridge is a killer! I have NOS sample.


Do you still have this? Best wishes. -uc
