"While I would never call the 7000 a 'lush-sounding' cartridge, it almost manages to convey the natural warmth inherent in most instruments…the 7000 also does a great job of placing instruments precisely within a believable 3-D space, again improving realism…the Shelter 7000 delivers a heaping helping of sonic sophistication for the money." – Chris Martens, The Absolute Sound, March 2008

A new cartridge design technology improves dynamic range. These new models (the 7000 and 9000) are a complete departure from the current line current line of Shelter cartridges. Newly designed body, high frigidity, improved front-yoke, larger diameter PC-OCC lead wires wound around the redesigned bobbin. These new concepts and design philosophy allow the Shelter 7000 to achieve new levels of dynamism and quietness for a smooth and effortless sonic presentation.
