Shure N97XE
Replacement Stylus - Audiophile Hi-Fi Cartridge

OUR PART #  N97XE


* Replacement Stylus for Shure M97XE Cartridges *

The M97xE is a superbly tracking, neutral, smooth-sounding magnetic cartridge, designed to provide long hours of undistorted, easy listening, without fatiguing the ear or tiring the mind.

The Shure M97xE 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. The Shure M97xE highly precise tracking ability and flat frequency response are made possible by Shure's M97xE unique Type II low-mass thin-wall aluminum alloy stylus cantilever, combined with a precision-crafted, finely polished, elliptical diamond tip.
