Want to upgrade my cartridge from 2m blue to black


My first post here on the forums and I needed an honest opinion. I have a cheap music hall mmf 2.2 turntable with 2m blue installed. I like the sound but was wondering if I can get better details from upgrading to a black cartridge on my basic turntable. Would it be worth it? I’m definitely an analog lover but am budget constrained. Any feedback will be greatly appreciated.

 You need to be wary of NOS old cartridges; the stylus suspension can / will deteriorate and become stiff over time.

It happended only with 2-3 cartridges out of 60 that i've tried, and those carts with bad suspension are Technics EPC-100 and EPC-205 series. 
Thanks everyone for all your suggestions. My maximum budget is approx $700 so I thought this would be a worthwhile upgrade to my analog play back. I understand the limitations of the turntable and I am told the black is very critical in picking up noise from dirty vinyl. I will also be using gruv glide to treat my vinyl collection.
I picked up a near new 2m black for $350 right here on the Gon.

Pretty darn spectacular for the price. Did not compete fully with my higher dollar lomc carts but a very worthy modern mm cart for sure.

You can use it on later better tables/arms without worry of it being outclassed.

That's not true. First of all i assume you play NEW vinyl, not a 40 years old vintage vinyl or not? So why do you expect noise on a new vinyl and why do you think a new vinyl is dirty by default ? 

If you play old vintage vinyl (like i do) the Shibata, LineContact, MicroRidge are so much better than Elliptical, because it can ride on a virgin part of the groove walls, not damaged by previous owner with Conical or Elliptical stylus decades ago. 

With Shibata, LineContact, MicroRidge stylus profiles you can only improve the sound quality compared to Elliptical profile. This is upgrade anyway. A lifespan of those styli are much longer!

Only digital aficionados are talking about noise coming from vinyl. 

$700 is fine for a great cartridge, but probably not enough for a good turntable and definitely enough for both, so you can do step by step. 

I would recommend to look for new Technics released this year:

SL1500s with build-in phono stage and phono cartridge ($1399 in the USA) or SL1200MK7 for $1199 in the USA.  



You are not getting the most out of your Blue. Upgrade the table/arm.
