and hum, do not make common (ground) connec-
tions at these terminals.
R RED (RIGHT “HOT”)
RG GREEN (RIGHT GROUND)
L WHITE (LEFT “HOT”)
LG BLUE (LEFT GROUND)
3. Mount cartridge in the headshell and replace stylus
(
and
). Do not force. Note: screws can be
threaded up from the bottom to provide maximum
record clearance.

The M97xE’s exclusive viscous-damped Dynamic Sta-
bilizer
maintains a uniform distance between the car-
tridgeand therecordunder difcultplayingconditions,
such as those caused by warped records or mismatched
tonearm mass. When such stabilization is not required,
the stabilizer can be locked into its up position, which can
improve sound quality under ideal playing conditions.
Over 10,000 conductive bers in the stabilizer brush
neutralize static charges on the record surface and con-
ductthemtotheground.Additionally,theberssweep
the record groove clean of dust and dirt in front of the
stylus tip. The Stabilizer also absorbs impact to pre-
vent record or stylus damage if the arm is accidentally
dropped on a record.
SIDE GUARD STYLUS PROTECTION SYSTEM
The Side-Guard stylus protection system helps prevent
stylus damage if the cartridge accidentally slides across
a record. This system responds to side thrusts on the
stylus by withdrawing the entire stylus cantilever and tip
safely into the stylus housing before the cantilever can
be damaged.
MONOPHONIC PLAYBACK
For monophonic playback of recordings, the left and right channels should be connected in parallel. This is ac-
complishedmostconvenientlybysettingthefunctionswitchontheassociatedpreamplierto“A+B”or“MONO.”If
the existing equipment has a single monophonic input, the two channels of the cartridge should be paralleled and
connected to this single input.
1. Make certain cartridge is correctly mounted in tone-
arm and stylus is properly inserted in cartridge.
2. Protect stylus with stylus guard when dusting turntable.
3. Regulate tonearm set-down to prevent stylus from
striking edge of turntable or record.
4. Do not handle tonearm while record is being played.
Use cueing device if available.
5. If manual set-down is necessary, release arm as
soon as stylus engages groove.
6. Do not activate arm without record(s) on turntable.
7. Do not use damaged records.
8. Checktrackingforceandanti-skateadjustmentspe-
riodically. The Shure SFG-2 Tracking Force Gauge,
available through your Shure dealer, provides a sim-
ple way to accurately set tracking force.
STYLUS CLEANING
Use the supplied brush to clean the stylus and dynamic
stabilizer. Brush only from back to front, as shown . Do
not use liquids on the stabilizer brush. Use alcohol or an
alcohol-distilled water solution to clean the stylus. Com-
mercial cleaning solutions may damage the stylus.
