    Welcome Burky. There are plenty of vinyl folks here. You are well on your way to an excellent analog system. Opinions abound so I won’t mention a specific cartridge. I will say that you should choose one for which your Phono preamp will be a good match so the cartridge output/preamp gain and loading options available will make for very happy listening.

      Since Burky owns the Andros 1.2, his option for cartridges is pretty wide open.

        Welcome Burky. With the amps, preamp and phono amp you mentioned, I suggest you give a neutral cartridge a listen, that is, not one known as a warm cartridge.

                      There is a huge amount of very valuable information within this forum if you so choose to read it that is. It took me weeks to read just the forums that contain information that is specific to my interests. Very worth while in my humble opinion.
