I just picked the Ion ITTUSB Turntable and tried it out on my friend's computer. Seems to work fine but I'd like to know what better cartridges would work with it. I saw one on Amazon called Shure M97xE High-Performance Magnetic Phono Cartridge. It got great reviews and it's not breaking my bank. I want high fidelity from my records and I know that my Player isn't the best so I was hoping to compensate with a good cartridge. I really liked the USB connectivity and the easy digitizing of my LPs, which is what led me to buy it rather than a beast of a hi-fi machine. Plus 150 was cheap compared to a $1K unit.
