    I am looking to pick up a new cart for my turntable. I had some random numark before and went to find a new stylus and turns out they don't make them anymore so currently I have a Numark CC1. I do not like it. it is a sphercial tip and calls for 3-6grams of tracking force.

    i have been looking online and so far my best bet seems to be the Shure M97-xe. The Shure has an Elliptical tip and only requires .75-1.5grams of tracking force

    got any other suggestions?

    What's your general budget range, and do you care if it's moving coil or moving magnet?

    I've been very happy with my Denon DL-110.

    I would rather not go too much above $100, but as high as $150 is not out of the question


    not too sure on the whole moving coil vs moving magnet so no i do not really care that much. I know of the two types but as to what is better I am lost
