Default ??

So I just won an auction for a Otofon MC Step Up Transformer T-10 for US$170 I think I have done ok on price

Do any of you have any thoughts as to what Cartridges would be a good match?

Wild guess: Ortofon. Spec says 2-4R coil resistance.

Again, the key to getting the most out of it, irrespective of which cartridge you end up with, is optimizing the secondary loading. If you do that, you can accommodate quite a few different cartridges.
