    For the price, the m447 it is a no brainer, ortofons are very good also but are more expensive and tear the record.

    As everyone here has stated, Shure M44-7's are the Tech1200's of the stylus/cartridge world.

    I have used everything from Ortofons to Numarks to Stantons and nothing comes close to a properly seated, balanced and weighted Shure M44-7.

    If price is a concern, think about some Shure M25c's since they're considerably cheaper than the M447's. No other cart will give you the performance these do at their price. They're very good.

    You can upgrade when you learn more about the other carts out there and are willing to spend extra cash on the better skip resistance and higher output. I also like M447s, no surprises there.
