    What an odd time to stop making phono products-- when everything has been on an increasing upswing for several years now. Do they know something we don't? Or is there too much competition now, making it not worth their effort?

    Fortunately, their are enough vintage SHURE cartridges on the market for all, and with the availability of aftermarket styli, their legacy can carry forth. Sad to see them depart though.

    I've been hearing of insane prices though. Now that they've announced, they are likely to go through the roof...

    Prices have actually gone down slightly. They are out of stock but are still taking orders. M97xe is $99 the stylus is $59.xx

    Sad to hear the news, of course, but I'm sure you're right. As for myself, fortunately, I own a couple of Shure carts, so I can't imagine needing another one. I also ordered an N97 stylus last week, and it was still only $59. As the POTUS likes to say, we'll see what happens. ;)
