    Re: Top Tier Cartridges, Sleepers and Amazing Values

    ART-9 is one of those very rare cartridges which can stop you from looking further and that even on a healthy $30-40k analog front end.

    Denon DL-S1. pulled this out of the cartridge draw. Legendary top of range Denon cartridge for a long time - now discontinued. If you have a phono stage that can handle the 0.15mv, it's hard to find a more detailed cartridge presented in a slightly laid back manner - for under 1k - absolute bargin.

    Re: Top Tier Cartridges, Sleepers and Amazing Values

    I have an Empire Troubadour II turntable that needs a new cartridge. I have it paired with an Onkyo 8555 receiver and a Martin Logan 15 bookshelf speakers. Any suggestions for a new cartridge, (MM), for $100 - $300?
