Jkmnop, compatibility with arm and phono is one thing to consider, but you should state your priorities or we will recommend everything available.
Whatever you choose, I recommend Lyra stylus treatment/cleaner - good stuff. I suspect, it is also antistatic. They claim that it is harmless and will not dissolve the glue that holds the stylus. I believe them until and unless I have a reason not to.
Lyra Delos cartridge is about $1350 from the UK, $1650 in the US. Not sure about your particular set-up but might be worth for you to investigate when you are ready to upgrade.
But why only MC? Personaly, I decided not to go with under $1000 MC. I'll get that Lyra when I can, for now I am quite happy with Goldring 1042 MM, the bass is a little loose but not bad. Very nice coherent sound, not the last word in speed or resolution but pretty good. $360 plus shipping from the UK.
