A few years ago, after owning and enjoying cartridges by Benz, Koetsu, van den Hul and Shelter, I was encouraged to try a Lyra Argo i by an audio friend. Ever since then I have become a fan of their designs and now have both an Argo and a Helikon. Their line-contact styli track better than anything I have experienced before and bring forth detail that I never heard with other brands. Lyra is my recommendation in the MC line up, given your nice system. When my Helikon and Argo are finally "toast" I plan to replace with Kleos and Delos carts. I'm sure there are other excellent cartridge brands, but I can only speak from personal experience.
