Shure with JICO worked great for me, as did the lowest priced SoundSmith MI cart.

I don't have an Amadeus, but I do have an Audio Technica AT150MLX, and it is a fabulous cartridge at its price. It comes with a MicroLine stylus, very similar to the profile of the original stylus on the V15. Most cartridges today with a MicroLine stylus are $2K and up.
The AT150MLX has some very nice features, such as PCOCC internal wiring, tiny magnets in a V configuration that improve separation, an aluminum body, gold-plated boron cantilever, replaceable stylus at reasonable cost, etc. I've had mine for 4 years and have no urge to upgrade. In fact I've upgraded everything downstream from it several times and every upgrade simply shows how good the cartridge is.
It was The Absolute Sound's 2011 Cartridge of the Year. Not Budget Cartridge, but overall Cartridge of the Year.
