Comments about Shure M44 7 Dj Turntable Cartridge:

As a whole, the M447 is a great Cartridge for playing beat up records, thrift store finds, cheap-o produced records, DJ of all sorts and styles, and especially scratching. High output, significant attention to highs and lows (think of the 'V' on EQ's), mediocre mids, and a robust rock steady cantilever and spherical tip. This thing tracks. Make sure everything is level, or else. And try not to mess with it. It's delicate around the clips and the travel packaging case sucks, so they want you to buy more products. It's to bad I know the truth- playing records backwards said corporate greed is the devil????? Whatever. Play loud music in any direction with a M44-7!

Also, after the break in period, to me, it doesn't sound as musical, detail decreased, and now it's just a workhorse. If you want a Cartridge for the casual to critical listening this isn't the cart for you.
