Ortofon 2m Black!

I've been recently enjoying music via this cartridge and couldn't be happier. The tremendous energy in the lower midrange to midbass and soundstage width is exceptional. Almost like listening to a master reel tape. Who agrees this is the best MM?

Oh... okay. I don't agree it's the best MM cartridge. As long as you enjoy the choice you made, that's all that matters.

In that price range I would pick the Hana HOMC and one that I used for quite a long time the Dynavector 10x5. Never a big fan of Ortofon MM carts.

I would agree on the Dynavector. The Ortofons (although I have one) are too hot on high end, IMO.

Best is highly subjective. My favorite MM cart right now is the Clearaudio Maestro V2 that I'm using on a Rega RP6 in my secondary system.
