This is a pretty popular question around here, someone asking today for cartridge recommendations in the $1200 range, usually gets a lot of responses, mostly LOMC carts at that in that price range, so thought it might be fun to have a poll with all of the MC cartridges I could come up with in this general price range. I'm sure I missed a few, and there are also some nice MM carts I left off just to limit the poll size (the Soundsmith Carmen MI cart did slip in since it is pretty popular), so go ahead and add your favorite with the Other selection and chastise me for my ignorance The selection criteria was just current availability new to a US buyer within this price range, could be retail or street price, B&M or internet, can ship from Japan or Hong Kong or wherever, not too restrictive. There are some cartridges that aren't readily available in the US for reasonable prices so I left them off, but can be had for instance in the UK. If available in both high and low output versions, I just listed the low output version, so feel free to comment on your choice (comments are encouraged!). Anyway, just for fun and to get some new ideas, so feel free to list others and tell us why they are worth considering.
