Can anybody recommend a MM cartridge up to approx £150 to partner a Rega RP6 turntable?
Although slightly over budget this is highly recommended by my Rega dealer.

Rega Elys would be the obvious choice, leaving some LP money over!

Think the Elys 2 would be a good choice, as no need to buy a spacer to raise the arm, but so would the AT95E with the spacer and money left for LPs
Can't help thinking the RP6 needs a cartrdige >£200

+1 that turntable deserves the best cartridge you can afford. If that is your budget then the Elys is best option.
Personally I'd try and save a bit more for a Nagaoka MP-150.

What kind of music do you listen to and how do you like the presentation to be?
The Elys2 is a little laid back for my liking.
