It's been a long time since I bought a cartridge. I don't have a huge amount of hours on mine but I would like to move on from my Benz Micro Glider HOMC. Sounds nice but never had anything else in my system. I don't like lean sound cartridges so lush lower mids are liked. My budget is $800-$1300 (new or used) I want to go LOMC (preferred). My table is VPI Classic II with JMW 10.5 inch arm. I have a MWI LS100 with phono that has sufficient gain. Thank you in advance for suggestions.

I run that that cart on my Clearaudio/SME and it has served me well for years. Good bang for the buck.

If you are demoing still I'd gladly send you one of these to try for 30 days. Sensitive Sound ART Dark.
