Shure cartridges can be used in DJ or Hi-Fi applications.
The M70BX is not recommended for heavy scratching.
HI-FI Setup: For maximum fidelity and minimal record wear, position the cartridge using an alignment protractor or the overhang gauge supplied with your turntable. Level your tonearm (See Figure 7). Use Table 2 and "Setting a Precise Tracking Force", below, to set the typical tracking force for your cartridge. Set the anti-skate control to the same number as the tracking force.
Standard DJ Setup: Mount cartridge at rear of headshell. Set tonearm height to 4-5. Set tracking force to 3 grams. Set anti-skate control to 0.
Unorthodox DJ Setup: Reverse the counterweight and mount it flush with the end of the tonearm. Mount cartridge (with headshell weight) flush with the front edge of the headshell. Set anti-skate control to 0.
Mount the cartridge at a 23 degree angle as shown, so that the cartridge points to the tonearm pivot. Set anti-skate to 0.
Brush from the back to the front only, as shown in Figure 9.
