Help. Looking for a new cartridge

Greetings. I am looking to upgrade my clearaudio concept mc cartridge.

So far I have looked into the maestro ebony v2

I'm trying to keep this under 1500$ including a protractor.

But I may make an exception for a Lyra delus. How good are they?

I listen to genesis Beatles led Zeppelin and 80s 90s rock.
Not looking for anything bright sounding. I want warmth depth and tight timing.

My system
Clear audio concept turntable
Parasound jc3+, jc2, a21
Psb synchrony one towers.

I second Syntex. I own a Delos and and like it better than the Benz Glider it replaced. (The Glider was a great cart., but I wore it out) Delos uses a line contact diamond on a solid boron wisker. The Benz used a elliptical diamond on a boron wisker. There is a difference in sound quality, all things remaining equal. Delos has a bit different suspension system which seems to work well. My table is a Gyro SE with SME V arm; its a very high quality analog system which is set up correctly.
