Great sounding stylus

  • Excerpt: I use this stylus and associated cartridge to remaster records to digital files. For the money, this cartridge/stylus combo is hard to beat. Detailed sound, better-than-average highs and fairly tight, accurate bass.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Use

Great Price for a Stylus

  • Excerpt: I love how the Shure cartridge sounds in my system but a little accident left me needing a new stylus. I had been hesitating because a new one was nearly the same price as the entire cartridge. Saw an ad for B H Photo and their price was about half of other suppliers. My vinyl sounds great again !
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Use, Price

  • Summary: Slightly off centred cantilever (common with Shure N97xE styli, an indication of poor manufacture quality). Shure should be aware of this as there have been many complaints about this.

Don't buy.

27 November 2013
  • Summary: The needle broke off after playing on 6 albums. Just snapped right off. No refund after 30 days. I'm 19 days past. $50 down the drain. I'll find a reputable dealer who stands behind their products.

N97XE Shure Cart Stylus

Marion A. Mims, Amazon
11 November 2013
  • Summary: I ordered the Shure N97xE Cart from Amazon and was very pleased with how it tracked and reproduced the sounds from my 45's and 33's. But beware as Easy-going posted and I noted myself that the stylus is very thin and fragile than most and there was green crud where it mounts to it's holder.
