Given the innovative design aspects that make this turntable perform above its price point, I think you can break the rule of limiting yourself to a cartridge of equal value.
Moving coils take you to a new realm, so don't castrate the experience by goimg half measures (hi output mc). Get the real deal, and a step up transformer, such as several available as kits from K&K audio. You only save $50 bux buying the kit over he ready made, but the experience is worth it.
Alternately, you could go all up town and get the Audio Note SUT, but here's an audio note warning: you risk getting an incomplete kit, or a kit midway between design alterations, and no help from the company building the thing that can't possibly work. Even your engineer friends won't be able to help you, and from AN, you will only get appeasing empty promises to deliver for well over a year before you give up in frustration.
But I digress. . . .
Where was I?
I think that Music Hall of yours deserves a chance to dance with the pretty girl at the prom. Give it a try. If it fails to deliver, keep the mc, and move up to a used Rega.
In for a penny, in for a pound. Vinyl is the natural ally of tube amps. Go for it!
