"It's three-dimensionality brings to life recordings one thought lacking in spaciousness, while its neutral tone balance, resolution, focus, air, speed, extension at both extremes, and cohesiveness always seem cut from the whole cloth."
 - Absolute Sound Best Choice, TAS Buyers Guide  

"The Shelter 501 Mk II is one of those rare products that does everything well."
 - TAS Editor's Choice Award, The Absolute Sound, Issue #185 
 

"I recommend the Shelter 501 MK II without hesitation. I recommended it at $2650 when sold as the Crown Jewel, and at only $850 how could it be otherwise!" (for about 4 years the Shelter 501 was rebadged and sold under the Crown Jewel name for $2650)
- Michael Fremer. Stereophile.

"Shelter's 501 Mk II is one of those rare products that does everything well - and some things spectacularly well. Its superb three-dimensionality adds spaciousness to recordings seemingly lacking in air and bloom, while its neutral tonal balance, audiophile virtues and cohesiveness make its sound always seem as if it is cut from a whole cloth."
- Product of the Year Award Winner, The Absolute Sound

Let me come right out and say it: The Shelter 501 is the best sub $1,000 I've heard and for more reasons than I have space to hint at here"
- Jonathan Valin, The Absolute Sound

"The 501 is very musical... It is easily in the same league as the Helikon, Frog, better Benzs, etc. I prefer it to the vdH Black Beauty ($5k) that I owned for two years"
- Jerry Seigel, 10audio

If you love midrange purity and perfect tonality no cartridge under $2500 beats the Shelter 501 MKII.

Overview

How can you get the all important midrange of a $2000 or $3000 cartridge for only $1195? The Shelter 501 has been providing that answer for years now for many analog lovers and with the new, improved Mark II version, there is still no better alternative value on the market.

A major upgrade from typical $1000 cartridges the Shelter 501 II easily fills the sonic shoes of cartridges costing two or three times as much. The Shelter 501 II blends its musical presentation with a warm, extremely musical mid-range, deep, authoritative bass and a smooth as silk top end. Instruments shine and are easily placed, showing plenty of soul. Voices are heard with a wonderful 'you are there' feeling. With a .4mV output and great trackability, the 501 II will absolutely knock your socks off...and for only $1095! 

All Shelter cartridges are hand-made in Japan. Musical value at its best, that's the Shelter 501 MK11!

Available as a MONO cartridge for $1995.
