If you want high-quality conversion, you probably need to do several things.
In the first place, you probably are not going to find a new stylus for the Grace cartridge for a reasonable price (if at all).
I recommend that you get a new cartridge, because the suspension in the old one may be shot anyway.
The Ortophon Blue and Red are fairly good and not too expensive.
A good phono preamp with a high-quality RIAA circuit is essential, and I recommend the Musical Fidelity V-LPS, which is very good and not too expensive.
To convert the signal to USB you need a good converter.
There are lots of them, but the prices are all over the place.
