Shure M35X DJ cartridge Vancouver BC Electronics


The M35X brings music alive by capturing every nuance of a recording, from deep drop bass to exceptionally clear mid and high frequencies. Designed specifically for use with House/Techno mixing environments, the cartridge's low record wear helps DJs preserve hard-to-replace vinyl, while its high skip resistance serves as a safeguard against the hazards of back-cueing.

The M35X combines high sonic accuracy and incredible skip resistance, all while keeping record wear to a minimum.


  • Features

    The M35X's versatile Shure Type I medium-diameter cantilever can stand up to continuous, demanding use, yet it is compliant enough to trace signal modulations as small as a millionth of an inch.

    With a tracking force range of 1.5 to 3 grams, the M35X provides considerable skip resistance.

    Skip Resistance: high

    Output: high

    Record Wear: very low

    Sound Emphasis: extreme clarity and deep drop bass

M97XE shure cartridge


The M97xE is a superb smooth-sounding phonograph cartridge designed to provide long hours of undistorted listening, without fatiguing the ear. 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.

This 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.


  • Dynamic Stabilizer:  The Shure exclusive viscous-damped Dynamic Stabilizer maintains a uniform distance between the cartridge and the record under difficult playing conditions, even those caused by warped records or mismatched tonearm mass. When such stabilization is not required, the stabilizer brush can be locked up into its detent position, which, under ideal playing conditions, can provide even better sound quality.
  • Side-Guard Stylus Protection System:  The innovative protection system helps to limit stylus damage if the cartridge accidentally slides across a record. This unique feature responds to side thrusts on the stylus by momentarily forcing the stylus cantilever and tip upward so that the cantilever does not bend sideways.
  • Die Cast Aluminum Mounting Block:  Ensures secure, vibration-free attachment to the tonearm.
