I have a Technics SL-1200 MK2 turntable with a Denon DL-160 cartridge. I am really enjoying this set-up and love the expansive sound-stage and dynamic sound the DL-160 produces. Overall I am very happy with it, but like most on here, I'm on a never ending quest to improve the sound on my system.
I was wondering if there were other cartidges out there in the $400 and under price range that had an expansive sound-stage and was dynamic like the DL-160, but with better detail in the highs (and maybe througout the frequency range) without being overly harsh. I love the warm sound of the cartridge, but I'm just curious if there were cartridges where I could gain resolution while still maintaining many of the pleasant qualities of the DL-160. Is such a cartidge out there in this price range, or would I have to spend a lot more than that to get the sound I'm describing above? Thanks in advance for your replies.
