Question Cartridge/Stylus for ripping vinyl recommendations?


I was hoping for some opinions on a good cartridge to use for ripping vinyl. Up till now I have been using a Shure m97xe and have been pretty happy with the results (relative to the Ortofon DJS I originally started with).

I recently needed to replace the needle on the Shure and tried out the Audio Technica AT-440MLa. While I love the additional detail I get from the AT440mla, it is way too bright for my taste. The bass also seems to roll off a bit too much.

Has anyone had a similar experience with the AT440mla? Can you recommend another cartridge? Perhaps something more like the Shure but with better detailing?

If it helps to know my signal chain, I use a dedicated Technic 1200 turntable, an Creek Audio OBH15 phone pre and a RME Fireface UC when ripping my audio.

thanks kindly,
