Sounding better and better after dormancy

I decided to put my turntable through its paces a few weeks ago. My "go to" ctg is the Shure V15VxMR that I bought new about 20-years ago. After playing one or two albums the sound was less than appealing and not what I remember. At first I thought it might need a new stylus and probably a record cleaning machine (Okki Nokki ??).


I then gave the tip a good cleaning with some Clear Audio stylus cleaner and brush to make sure before buying anything. The clean stylus did it's job and lent some improvement. But the more I played it the better everything sounds. Granted, this is after the table getting maybe 4-5 albums in the last 7 or 8 years.


So, my question is, could the better sound be due to the internals of the cartridge (magnets) loosening up again?
