This Shure M97xE cartridge features a very low mass heat-treated cantilever, a viscous-damped Dynamic Stabilizer damper/de-staticizer and Side guard Stylus Protection System. It comes in a very handsome aluminum protection case. The viscous-damped Dynamic Stabilizer acts kind of like a shock absorber on your car. It helps to maintain a uniform distance between the cartridge and the record under difficult playing conditions, such as those caused by warped records or mismatched tonearm mass. Over 10,000 conductive fibers in the stabilizer brush neutralize static charges on the record surface and conducts these charges safely to ground, reducing static pops. The Stabilizer also absorbs impact to prevent record or stylus damage if the arm is accidentally dropped on a record.

SHURE - Hi-Accuracy Cartridge

  • 1/2" tone arm mount, moving magnet type cartridge
  • Frequency response: 20Hz-22kHz
  • Diamond stylus tip, polished natural gemstone (.2milx 0.7 mil Elliptical) (5 x 18 m)
  • Amplitude: 80 em at 400 Hz
  • Side Guard stylus protection system
  • Trackability:1 kHz - 44cm/sec , 10 kHz - 31 cm/sec, 400Hz - 30cm/sec at 1 gram tracking force
  • Includes screwdriver, stylus cleaning brush, mounting hardware and stylus guard
    Output: 4mV

    The M97xE is a superb smooth-sounding phonograph cartridge designed to provide long hours of undistorted listening, without fatiguing the ear. Its highly precise tracking ability and flat frequency response are made possible by Shure's unique Type II low-mass thin-wall aluminum alloy stylus cantilever, combined with a precision-crafted, finely polished, elliptical diamond tip.

    Dynamic Stabilizer
    Shure's exclusive viscous-damped Dynamic Stabilizer maintains a uniform distance between the cartridge and the record under difficult playing conditions, even those caused by warped records or mismatched tonearm mass. When such stabilization is not required, the stabilizer brush can be locked up into its detent position, which, under ideal playing conditions, can provide even better sound quality.

    Side-Guard Stylus Protection System
    The innovative stylus protection system helps prevent stylus damage if the cartridge accidentally slides across a record. This unique feature responds to side thrusts on the stylus by withdrawing the entire stylus cantilever and tip safely into the stylus housing before the cantilever can be damaged.

    Die Cast Aluminum Mounting Block
    Ensures secure, vibration-free attachment to the tonearm.

    Warranty
    Every M97xE ordered from this website comes two-year limited warranty on materials and workmanship. (See
    warranty information)

    Rating great upgrade
     
    Upgraded from the old Shure cartridge on my middle-of-the-line Technics and it sounds great! It was a bit edgy sounding at first but after about 10 or so hours it really smoothed up and sounds very balanced. Tracks great too, although I'm still playing around with various VTF to get it optimized. Awesome buy for the price.

    Recieved the M97xE after a few days. Free shipment + shipping insurance. Great buy.I have bought the AT120E for the same price before and got it the same way.To be honest i like the AT120E better but the SHURE M97xE is very good for the price and you can buy a JICO SAS neddle as well. I havenīt tried that yet. Very good seller (firm). Very pleased

    Q: I will like to buy one Shure M97XE and also a headshell for it ,can you guys mount the headshell to it and align it? I am using a Technics turntable SL200 with S arm, thanks.
    Asked by:  - 3/12/2014
    A: Good afternoon,

    We do not do a plug and spin kit on this item since it is factory sealed, but if you would allow us to break the seal on the packaging and charge you an extra $6.00, we could do this.

    Please email Sales@TurntableNeedles.com for more information on this.

    Thank you for your inquiry,
