- Editors Choice Award for Cartridges below $500, The Absolute Sound

In recognition of its musical excellence, the Shure M97xE has been graced with The Absolute Sound Editors Choice Award for Cartridges below $500 in 2007, 2008 and 2009. (The Absolute Sound Issue 175). Designed for music listeners seeking a sensibly affordable and exceptional all-around performer, the Shure M97xE cartridge offers a generally neutral tonal balance, excellent tracking and an overall presentation that is effortlessly smooth and musical.

As one of Shure's best phono cartridges, the Shure M97xE low-mass moving magnet cartridge includes performance boosters such as a dynamic stabilizer damper, de-staticizer, and a diecast aluminum mounting block. Together, these enhance the capability of the cartridge to deliver superior, detailed, and very accurate sound.

The Shure M97xE is a superb sounding phonograph cartridge designed to provide long hours of undistorted listening, without fatigue. 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.
