Who gives a shit what you think, you use an AVR, Bose, Cordless headphones, and never listen to Vinyl, so your opinion is once again irrelevant.

Audio Technica AT 95E  hard to beat for out right value.

Simiko Oyster not exactly bad, average cheapie.  The Pearl is better. Black Pearl not half bad.

Ortho Red, Blue very nice on a Rega RB 250.

Excell make nice affordable cartridges.

Never been disappointed with any Shure pity they are  ceasing cartridge manufacture.

Never been happy with Grado the fucks hum when used with AC synchronous motor turntables, which the majority of turntables use these days.

Refuse to pay silly bucks for a cartridge only get small increments in improvement not worth it, rather buy music.

Moving Coil   Evil or Very Mad   Not going down that rabbit hole, it gets insane, total money pit.

Hana SL MC when they first came out were £450 or cheaper if you knew the right people.  Utter bargain and embarrassed the wankers with £2-3k carts who went home and cried or were in utter denial at how much money they had spunked for fuck all.

K9 was only an AT anyway.
 Best cart for everything in my experience is the dyno 10x5.
 On me fourth one. Brilliant cart !
Don't get Denon . Only one I like is the 110.
 Good for old rekkids annorl cos it ignores a lot of scratches .
 Heard on of those £1500 Ortofon cadenza things at the weekend. It sounded like it couldn't be arsed ! 
 Honest...get a 10x5.

There’s really no fucking rocket science to it.  You have to get one that matches your arm, you can adjust your phono stage to it, and you set up and align properly.

Most of these cunts with £5k carts just kept swapping and spending more because they couldn’t do the basics right.
