New cartridge for Funk Firm Vector....

clearaudio performer v2 ebony ?
goldring 1042 ?
rega exact?

I know these are at different price points..Ideally 400.00 range...:)
Using a Heed pre n power btw...
Listen to much Blue Note, some classical and rock stuff like Zep,Floyd etc
Audio Technica AT150MLX or buy the Ortofon 2M Red and a whole bunch of LPs for the difference in savings.
Maybe Nagaoka 300 or even the 500. Try asking about the 300 over at Vinyl Engine. It is quite well reviewed.
