As I already wrote any MC cartridge stands a good chance of improvement when coupled to a step up transformer. There are good ones available from several companies: Ortofon, Bob's Devices, and Denon come immediately to mind as popular safe choices. There are a lot of options and this is something that can be safely purchased used. Take a look at ebay and audiogon for starters. The current issue of TAS has an evaluation of the current Ortofon unit. Expect to pay $500-$600 for a good used one. If you are going to acquire one, then I agree with John's recommendation that you go with an XA.
