" The Absolute Sound " 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.
