Shure M97


The Shure M97 cartridge series was developed in answer to the need for a broad spectrum of cartridges for the variety of audiophiles seeking a high-performance cartridge with top-of-the-line features at a moderate price.

Every M97 is a genuine Shure Stereo Dynetic Cartridge and features the exclusive Shure Era IV Dynamic Stabilizer.

In addition, each model incorporates the new telescoped stylus shank design which provides lower effective tip mass without sacrificing strength.

The M97 series cartridges are available with five different stylus assemblies in two different tracking force ranges to match the budget and turntable of the audiophile.

As your system grows, you can upgrade your cartridge by purchasing the replacement stylus assembly from a different model in the series. In addition, a stylus for playing 78's is available for any M97 series stereo cartridge.
