VPI Prime, what would your Cartridge and Phono be?

What would you choose for a cartridge and phono stage be if you bought this table? Budget is 2k,

I observe many Soundsmith Zephrs going into service as well as Ortofon Cadenza, and Quintent black. The 2M is also popular too. Is the Soundsmith AIDA worth the extra jump in price. Our present phono stage is a Cambridge AZUR 651p.

Used Herron VTPH-1mc and an AT-OC9/II. Should come in around $2k. Very solid combo.
