  • Excerpt: I bought my first Shure cartridge in 1961 to install in a Reckocut belt drive turntable. Unfortunately, the belts dry out over time and are no longer available. So I bought the Audio Technica direct drive table betting that they've solved the rumble and wow problems such tables had early on.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Excellent Sound

  • Excerpt: This is a nice light cartridge with a nice rich sound. I used it to replace an old Audio Technica cartridge and stylus on a 40-year-old Dual. The dynamic stabilizer is great for old record players and slightly imperfect old records.
  • Pros: Excellent Sound

  • Excerpt: Actually am using the stylus in my 1970's Shure M104e cartridge and it sounds wonderful. Tracking at 1.5 grams. This is the second headshell set-up I use with my Denon D300p turntable and vintage NAD receiver and A70 Boston Acoustics loudspeakers. Recommended.

  • Excerpt: I purchased this cartridge to replace an old one on a vintage turntable I recently acquired for my daughter who has begun to collect vinyl. The M97xe was easy to install and calibrate, and worked beautifully with the low mass tonearm on the turntable.

  • Excerpt: Wanted to dig out and play my sizable collection of old vinyl but my 50 year old Garrard SL95 was a basket case. I ordered the Audio-Technica AT-LP120USB Direct Drive Professional DJ Turntable which came with the 95E cartridge and stylus.
