As another recommendation, the Lyra Dorian has a microridge stylus which is quite similar to the particular line-contact design used on the Argo, and it should be around 750 bux in the US.
Voltage output is 0.6mV, which should make more phono stages happier (and thereby increase the range of phono stages that you can choose from).
The sonic personality of the Helikon is also closer to the Dorian than it is to the Argo.
