best substitute for a Technics SL-1700 Cartridge,Headshell with Stylus

Recommended Posts

so by reading the title of the of the topic its pretty obvious. The stylus still works alright, but it could be so much sharper. I own a Technics SL-1700, but im looking for a some what affordable new cartridge with a headshell with a good/great stylus. I would prefer to purchase off Amazon, but im not sure how to tell which cartridge,headshell,or stylus will be the right fir for my Technics SL-1700. I want it to be pretty much perfect. as you can tell by reading my post im new at buying new parts for turntables. My turntable still has the factory cartridge & everything, but im looking for a killer set up, maybe a black headshell with a red stylus. i just want something to pop on this dull grey color machine. I love my Turntable, but i want some flavor, i want to spend around$100-$225. I have found a lot on ebay, but i dont have paypal right now due to the wife, and i just do not know what cartridge will fir my SL-1700, or the headshell, or the stylus to fit it for that matter. i could use all your guys help if you dont mind please.
