Sorry, shall we just guess which would compliment your system? With the amount of information given, I believe you've stumped us. A little help please.

And in reality I would never not recommend the Koetsu. But is that the sound your system needs?

System: Space Deck->Grado Phono Preamp->TacT RCS2.XP->two TacT S2150s->Budge Khorus main speakers & custom subs.

Looking for a neutral cartridge with good tracking.

For good tracking I would say stick with Benz, Lyra and Dynavector. All favor their own representation of neutrality.

However, if you're using the Grado pre amp, why not stick with a Grado? Their top of the line cartridges have always garnered excellent reviews which give you close to SOTA performance at a much lower price than you will pay for a MC. I've never read how the Grado pre amp works with most MC's. Does it have the loading facilities for such a cartridge? I thought not.
