Please help with your experience and advice. I don't have a huge LP collection but I have a few hundred or so and I have found myself listening to them again since getting a pair of LSi15s. I'm thinking about transfering them to a hard drive "for posterity". I have a decent Dual turntable with a Shure V15 TypeV MR cartridge which some feel is the best moving magnet cartridge ever (but no longer) made. I'm thinking about trying a high output moving coil cartridge. I'm not planning on investing thousands of dollars on a pickup, thousands more on a top end turntable and then buying a phono preamp to boost a low output MC cartridge to boot, but might be persuaded to invest a few hundred if I felt the sound would be better than my Shure MM cartridge and if I could use it with my existing turntable. Do any of you feel that a MC cartridge in that price range would definitely be superior to what I currently have? If so can you make a recommendation for a "budget" MC cartridge? And how do I know if my turntable tone arm will be compatible with the cartridge's height?
