If you like classical or acoustic music and natural warmth, can't do any better. Some other cartridges are more "exciting" or "detailed." Usually they have a tipped up high end or sound rougher, like the Regas. But all sub $800 ones I've heard are less neutral and musical than the Grado. I use one after having gone through a dozen other cartridges, some pricier than the Grado.
