Super-clean, well-cared for current model Shelter 7000 with 250-300 hours of careful use. Perfect working condition with straight cantilever. Very neutral, clear, dynamic sound with plenty of slam and extension.
Shelter 5000 + 7000 Review By AV Guide:
The 5000 will wow you with its dynamic prowess...The 7000 proved to be a real spellbinder.
TAS Review of the Shelter 7000:
Shelter cartridges enjoy a reputation for smoothness, vibrant tonal colors, holographic soundstaging, and an eminently listenable sound, but designer Yasuo Ozawa hoped to give his new models "more life" - meaning more detail, transient speed and explosive dynamics. Those qualities are exactly what Shelter's 5000 and 7000 deliver, thought the latter justifies its higher price by providing more finely resolved and open-sounding highs, more potent, refined bass, and greater dynamic poise.
