Phono cartridge connections and wire color codes

FAQ #2913 Updated September 30, 2008


If possible, I would like some guidance on the proper electrical connections for a Shure M912ED cartridge.

I have four wires, red, white blue and green, and four connections: L, R, LG and RG. Two of the wires, the blue and white, have clear insulated sleeves around the actual metal connectors.


L (Left) = white
LG (Left Ground) = blue
R (Right) = red
RG (Right Ground) = green
