So right now I have a clearaudio concept on it. White cleaning the needle got bent and snapped off by the one who cleans the house.
I would like to replace the cart with maybe something better. The only requirement is that the cart has to be MM and under $500.
What do you guys suggest? Speaking with few people / dealers I was recommended Goldring 2400 as a very good upgrade and good match for the tonearm.
What say you?

Yes, that's a good match. Also Dynavector 10x5 or Nagaoka MP200. That arm is quite ringy, so avoid anything too thin and bright.

If you are thinking 2400, it is worth the little bit more for the 2500 in my opinion.

I replaced the cart on my friend's Marantz about two months ago. Went with a Denon DL-110 and it is a hit. Smooth, responsive and great sound stage. I prefer it to my 10X5 on my P6 to be honest. The 110 is a good fit with your deck.

I have own 4 stock concept tables and found that the Nagaoka MP 150 or 200 works very well with this table

Yes. A restraining order is necessary. The aforementioned 'cleaner' must not enter a 10-foot No Entry Zone surrounding the tt.
