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. This cartridge is able to accurately reproduce very difficult musical passages, particularly in the high-frequency range, where audio modulations are the smallest and most concentrated, and stylus tip movement is consequently the most rapid.
From the Manufacturer
The superb-tracking, neutral, smooth-sounding M97xE magnetic phono cartridge is designed to provide hours of undistorted, enjoyable listening without fatiguing the ear or tiring the mind. The cartridge accurately reproduces the most difficult musical packages, particularly in the high-frequency range where audio modulations are the smallest and stylus tip movement is the most rapid. This precise tracking ability is made possible by Shure's unique Type II low-mass, thin-wall, aluminum-alloy stylus cantilever, in addition to its precision-crafted, finely polished elliptical diamond tip.
Among the M97xE's most notable features is a viscous-damped dynamic stabilizer, which maintains a uniform distance between the cartridge and the record under difficult playing conditions, such as those caused by warped records or a mismatched tonearm mass. Should the stabilizer prove unnecessary, listeners can lock it in the detent position, which can, under ideal playing conditions, ensure even better sound quality. The cartridge also offers a die-cast-aluminum mounting block for secure, vibration-free attachment to the tonearm, along with a Side-Guard stylus protection system that helps prevent stylus damage if the cartridge accidentally slides across a record. The latter feature responds to side thrusts on the stylus by withdrawing the entire cantilever and tip safely into the stylus housing before the cantilever can be damaged.
The cartridge delivers an essentially flat 20 Hz to 22 kHz frequency response and fits on a standard 1/2-inch tonearm mount. It also comes with mounting hardware, a headshell screwdriver, and a cleaning brush, and carries a one-year warranty against defects.

that being said, if you like tight drum sound and good overall stereo effect with an economical price, this cartridge is for you. i have purchased this to see what modern times might bring in audio improvement, but i still prefer my old v15 type 4 cartidge over this one. of course the v15 cost 3 times as much.....i would reccomend this cartridge for people with low to medium quality turntables.
clear winner for anyone serious enough about vinyl that they've decided to spend some money on a decent sounding cartridge. You cannot get a better sounding setup for the money than this, PERIOD. Easy to setup, sturdy, not too finicky. comes complete with an anti static carbon fibre brush head.
Currently running on Audio Technica ATLP 240 USB & ATLP 120 USB model direct drive turntables using the RIAA equalized outputs (Phono level)
I could spend more, but why? Shure has a winner with this.
Come over to my house anytime to hear it!

Fantastic cartridge. Very full, mellow sound. Cannot beat for the price.
Easy to install.
One of the best moving magnet cartridges at a more than reasonable price and you can take it to the next level with a Jico SAS stylus!Published 5 months ago by Greg B.
It might be my fault but I was no very impressed by this cartridge. I'll experiment more maybe I'll get better results. Will update if I change my mind about this product.Published 7 months ago by M. Sicoie
