Not that many Kevin - the Ortofon Cadenza Blue, which is a superbly detailed MC but can
sound a touch bright in the wrong system. It suits the Audiomods 6 arm & Elevator/ReflexM 
pair really well.
The AN IQ3 is a serious contender too I have to say.
Good luck.

Thanks again for the feedback.
More investigation is required, and when this COVID-19 is over, I may see if I can get a bit of a bake off with a few cartridges to narrow the choices down.

My other option is to just enjoy what I have for the time being, and stop chasing the next upgrade.

I think I have decided that a new set of speakers will be more beneficial than a small improvement a cartridge would give me.

Thank you very much, gentlemens! Very interesting thread for undecided newcomer. I just closed my loan (thx, Kevin!) and realized that I "need" not only new phono pre. :-) GS Accession is very fine but needs good companion. I believe AN IQ3 is more than serious contender. Audio Note wrote IQ is in stock and "will indeed work well in your ATP-12T tonearm." I´m looking forward to real price quatation by Czech distributor.

Speakers! Tremendous! Any ideas so far? Plenty of PMC lovers around here - they really seem to love being driven by my Proprius pair. Keep us posted!

Oh, nice! I’ve always admired their accuracy to tone colour and way with voices. Sadly, no decent dealers anywhere near me, so they couldn’t be a part of my last audition process. The few times I’ve heard that brand, I’ve Ben super impressed with their ability to give me loads of detail as to what the musicians are doing on a micro level.
Enjoy!
Mick.
