    Hello,
    I need some recommendations for an MC cartridge that is a little or below $1,000. My pre-amp is a Pro-Ject Tube Box S2. For my turntable, it's a Pro-Ject Debut Carbon EVO.

    A huge waste of money putting a $1000 MC cartridge on a $500 Debut Carbon IMHO. Get a better turntable first.

    I bought a Denon DL-300(LO) from a seller called cartridge-retipping-5. Great deal, works really well with my Technics SL-D2 feeding my Emotiva preamp which has MC capability. He has a bunch of MC cartridges and is a great seller. Not affiliated, just a very happy customer.

    I got a retipped MC-200 from the same seller. Very friendly and helpful and does good work.

    I swear by the AT33Sa. Shibata stylus and boron cantilever. Loving it.
