Well it's not going to be a Linn cartridge. For $200 look for an ortofon or Grado. The Grado may hum, though 
The Linn arm mass is 13.5 grams,with the Grado the resonance is 8 hz so this Grado will fit the bill !

The original Linn MM cartridges were made by Audio Technica and I believe the current ones by Goldring, so those would be a good place to start.

You might be able to find a used Linn Adikt for around that price.  I have owned one, excellent MM cartridge.
