I have an rpm9.1 . I have used a bp no.2, a benz glider and a sumiko blackbird with it. The bp no.2 is a great cartridge for the money. The benz glider is slightly more musical,but i hear slightly more inner groove distortion and it can be somewhat sibilant even after adjusting vtf and vta many times. It also produces slightly more surface noise than the bp no.2. The blackbird is better than both in every way. Quiet,smooth,refined character that just makes it more involving. If you want a super quiet ,bang for the buck,well rounded cartridge,try the shure m97he. Although it doesn't have the most refined articulate bass, it is very ez to listen to for hours on end with zero sibilance.only 55.00 on amazon. An amazing deal!
