depends what you mean by "the earth", but i use these and they're sweet:

Ortofon Concorde DJ S Cartridge & Styli 61.66 - www.djsuperstore.co.uk (http://www.djsuperstore.co.uk/item/cartridges-styli-needles/040556-ortofon-concorde-dj-s-cartridge-styli-%C2%A365.00)

they're a fairly old model but they're still good enough for most purposes, and they good news is they don't cost as much as they used to :D

Stanton 500's are just the bog standard cartridge you saw on every record shop turntable. They fix to the technics Head shell.

To be honest though as long as your needles and carts produce a reasonable sound, I would suggest keeping your cash in your wallet mate. In my experience, unless you are scratching, it makes little difference.

Those Pickerings I linked are a great buy though.:thumbsup:
