He plays all of his old records like the good old days.
Walter Jalube
The Shure is not quite as smooth, detailed or three dimensional as the Ortofon but is flatter, more even and open sounding.

I can recommend this product with no hesitation at all.

This is a good all around cartridge especially if your not after a superior sound. It's very "neutral" and uncolored which is a real plus. However, the upper frequencies-cymbals, "sibilants" etc.-get pretty muddy. Don't let this scare you. This puppy, especially when mounted on a good straight arm P-mount, will track almost anything! If you can find a Shure 104E stylus to replace the stock stylus you'll be pleasantly surprised at how good the 92E cartridge really sounds! I only give it 4 stars because the stock stylus is a little lacking on the high end, at least to my ear anyway! Good overall value especially given that it's a "universal" mounting system.

Verified Purchase
I bought this cartridge to try since it was extremely inexpensive and made by one of the great names in hifi. There was a time when Shure was the great American cartridge company and virtually everyone with a component turntable owned at least one Shure product. I paid only US$ 18.95 plus shipping for this little red and black beast. Mine said it was Made in Mexico on the box. Packaging is modest and not as luxurious as what Shure provides for its more expensive M97eX. I also own a Shure M97eX (also from Amazon)and a Shure stylus force gauge (a must have for all owners of non P-Mount tables).

The Shure M92E is for P-Mount tonearms i.e. for plug in style cartridges that are held in place with a single screw. This makes alignment easy with no need to adjust the tonearm. There is also an adapter to use the cartridge on standard tonearms as well. I used my M92E on a Technics BD20d turntable. This is a low cost Technics table that I bought new about ten years ago and the basic design dates back to the mid 1980s. I have the modest Technics cartridge that it came with and a better Ortofon OM3P cartridge which cost around $50.

The Shure is surprisingly good sounding. It has a nice, warm balance without shrill highs and bass is actually quite good. It is much better than the rather edgy sounding Technics cartridge that came with the turntable. The Shure is not quite as smooth, detailed or three dimensional as the Ortofon but is flatter, more even and open sounding.

I am guessing a lot of people looking at this Shure cartridge are going to use it on a turntable similar to mine so I suggest adding a low cost thin felt platter mat from Pro-ject on top on the rubber one that comes with the turntable.

I had this Shure cartridge when it first made it's debut.I'm gonna be nice and say that unless you have real old records, worn out records, the stuff you would never play on high end expensive equipment, then this cartridge is your answer ! If you use this on pristine records you will definitely hear the shortcomings of this cart with regards to tonal, frequency, and sibilant accuracy. It's not going to perform anywhere near Shure's other two high end audiophile carts with regards to tracking and overall clarity and sound quality...You really get what you pay for with the

Shure M92E. It does it's job well and I recommend it for casual background music listening only...It's not a DJ quality cart and it's not even anywhere near audiophile grade quality...it's just a dependable performer for those on an extremely tight budget.

The Shure M92E is the kind of cartridge I've always felt was the absolute bottom
-of-the-line of "acceptable" vinyl playback. I feel that my records are safe with this cart
as opposed to some that I simply have no idea of the design and history. A bad stylus or a
crappy cart can ruin a record. Since sonic impressions
are what you will be most curious about, I'll describe them.

I am listening to the M92E right now playing Captain Beefheart's "Clear Spot". I must admit that for the money I paid (half the current price but no mounting kit) I get lots of pleasure knowing my best carts are ready to use but the M92E is oddly pleasing. It does nothing particularly wrong OR right except do its job and fade into the background. Compared to a cartridge at least twice-the-price, the soundstage is a bit thin, the general clarity of location of sounds in the mix is better on pricier carts.

It is very easy to listen to. If you are playing a record while doing other things, not listening with care, it does an excellent job. If you crave a decent second cart for emergencies or for "everyday" use, saving that high-dollar cart for times when you want the difference, this is a fine choice. Not into Vinyl THAT much but want decent sound ? Good choice. There is a big difference between this cart and the Shure M97Xe Shure M97xE High-Performance Magnetic Phono Cartridge The M97 keeps the Shure sound while improving on every sonic area almost even-handedly...very Shure. The mass of the different stylus assemblies combined with a finer elliptical tip give it much of the "space" and transients that the M92E naturally muffles.

By cheap of course I mean 25.00 delivered. For anyone wanting to get back into vinyl, or simply enjoy the existing collection, or just looking for a different musical experience, which is vinyl, check this one out. It is rugged, has an elliptical needle, sounds good without being muddy and will make you happy.

Forget about the Audiophile stuff for a minute. Those who spin records with 10K systems will consider this cartridge way too elementary for their tastes. Those who love music for the sake of music will love it.
Big fun without a serious investment. Be prepared, you might catch the vinyl bug. Way more potent than the avian flu.
