As far as new cartridges to try, I'd look at the Ortofon Verismo. I like the A90 a lot, and this looks like a supercharged version of A90/A95 with diamond cantilever.
I just installed a Charisma V2, tracks with no problem, very easy to set up, especially compared to the Benz and the Koetsu which just wasn't a good match. no matter how good it sounds when playing well. The Charisma isn't close, but it needs time to run in. Sounds great but you miss that huuuge SS. I think I miss the SUT, the MC16 does something special.I'm gonna have Michael Trei back to put the Koetsu on the 12 and tweak my Charisma set up. I'm sure that will reap rewards.
