Be bold, and cheap. Try a Shure 97. I know, I know, how can something so cheap sound so good. Well it does and it makes a great replacement while you are looking for another cartridge.

I have the Clearaudio Emotion and I used to use a Shure 97. I will admit that the sound was really quite solid and accurate - albeit potentially a little bit lean.
I've since put a Dynavector 10X5 on and I couldn't be happier. So, I would guess that if you are really looking to spend between $500 - $1000 I would think you might want to look at the Dynavector 20x2 in the right output range for your preamp.
