Hmm -

A shame the article isn't more informative.

Are they also meaning the V15 mk-III and IV, and the M97HE ? (which I have in my SME Arm . . )

If so - then they immediately TRASH millions of Record Decks . . . . .

Even the current USB Decks ( Digitise your Vinyl . . ) use STYLI . . . . . (WTF)

OK there ARE other makers of Carts/styli

Here's one http://hifilounge.co.uk/koetsu-cartridges

Buts Sit Down before you look 8O

We shall have to wait and see

. . . but Shure were one of the Brand leaders . . . . so its NOT good news at all . . . . 8O

I guess it all comes down to economics. If it is not profitable to make these carts anymore then they don't really have much choice but to pull them.
