You need to look at the total weight of the cartridge and be sure that is OK (Denon says 5 to 10 grams is OK).
You also need to be aware that most Grado cartridges are not shielded and this can cause a bad hum with some turntables.
The arm compliance and its compatibility with the cartridge is the other big issue.
Music Direct and Needle Doctor seem to have experienced people who can address those issues by phone or e-mail.
