I just put a new Linn Adikt ($300) on my LP12/Basic Plus. I like it a lot, without being able to compare it to many other choices. It's likely to be a little more vivid, and with a slightly leaner midrange than a Grado, but without the annoying hum problems. And, or course, it's meant to work well tonally and mechanically with the table and the arm.
