Hi all, my first day and first question 

Im looking for some advice on which cartridge should I buy for my project rpm 9 turntable. I currently use a ortofon mc 25fl but this has gone way passed its best days and I am thinking about a ortofon rondo red as its replacement .i would also get a 25% exchange discount if I buy another ortofon.

I have up to £500 to replace the cartridge.

Many thanks

Seems the obvious choice. That discount is very tempting. However, http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Clearaudio-Aurum-Classics-Woods-V2A-MM-Cartridge-/290865830290?pt=Turntable_Parts_Accessories&hash=item43b8f45992 this works very well with my Pro-ject. if you was to buy this in a shop you'd be looking at more like £350.
