Need some cartridge advise please.


Hello all, 

  I have a Basis 1400 with the Rega RB 900 tonearm.  I am currently using a Benz Micro Glider cartridge that is at least 15-16 years old.  My phono pre is a Rockford Fozgate Signature.  I am sure it is time to replace/retip the cartridge.  I have no local dealers to ask or demo.  
  If anyone could offer suggestions for a cartridge that would work well with my setup would be appreciated.  I listen to mostly classic rock. I could probably spend up to $1500.  Thank you in advance for any input.

I have enjoyed the Benz MIcro.  I do not have any specific complaints about the sound.  I was considering changing based on the age of the cartridge.  Who would you recommend for retipping?
Thanks to all that have responded.  I'm researching cartridge matching with tonearms and my head is spinning.  Anyone with deep pockets want to open an audio shop in east Texas?  :)
Ha Ha, I'm actually in Shreveport, but the nearest audio dealer is in Dallas.  I'm willing to drive, but damn it's a long ways to visit a small dealer with limited selections.  I realize I'm more likely to see a unicorn than see a new brick and mortar audio dealer near me.
Thanks everyone, I have some reading and shopping to do.
