Ortofon M20FL (Fine Line Stylus) would be great and will put new Ortofon 2M to shame. Just stay off the modern MM cartridges, if you want to spend less to get much much better performance look for top vintage MMs. If you’re lucky you can find NOS Ortofon M20FL for resonable price (under $200 is a bargain). The effective mass of my reed 3p tonearm is 18g and Garrott P77 wokrs great along with JVC X1II or Audio-Technica AT-ML150 occ, but those mid compliance MM cartridges are more expensive.
