Shure MV30HE

Miniature Low-Mass Integrated Cartridge Arm

Shure MV30HE


The Shure MV30HE provides the moving system of the acclaimed V15 type IV in an all new Shure miniature cartridge body, incorporated in the SME series III carrier arm.

In addition to an elegant appearance coupled with the convenience of plug-in design, the engineering supplies all the advantages of minimum effective mass.

Careful attention has also been paid to macro design specifications to ensure that the stylus tip and the intersection of the horizontal and vertical bearings coincide with the plane of the record surface to minimise warp-wow.
