My 2 favorites, depending on price are Clearaudio Aurum Beta S and Goldring 1012. The Goldring is 1/2 the price but there is a noticable difference.

I used an AT440 on a Technics 1200 table. It was muddy, dark and difficult to listen to. I repalced it with a Denon Dl 160 and a heavier headshell. Much much better, more natural and dynamic. Very good for the money.
I mounted the Denon 160 on a Rega P9 with 1000 arm. It was off and not quite right. I then added the 3G accessory weight and it really shined.
Zu had some really good prices (1/2 off) on their modified Denon 103R's right now. $300 entry fee, but you will need to buy or build a step up transformer. If you rebuilt the Scott yourself the SUT will be very easy for you. I am building a few right now for a friend and for me.
