To update what I said. I got a new cartridge, the Grado Labs Prestige Labs Black model ($40). The guy in shop told me that "There's no reason to go better than that for a Fisher turntable.", so I guess I got away cheaply. Anyway, it's fine. Recommended stylus pressure is 1.5 grams.
It's obviously not "high end", but it's just fine for "playhing records." Considering that vinyl is readily available cheaply at antique shops, yard sales, even specialty shops, it's a lot of fun.
A final comment is $$$ put into the preamp is well worth the expense. The Creek was $250...but the sound is excellent.
