I personally have never heard any "DJ-type" phono cartridge that sounded better than a Stanton 890. The output level isn't such a big deal as long as you have enough available gain in your mixer to compensate...and as long as you're using the same cartridge on all turntables in your system.
One negative thing I recall about the 890's...they seemed more prone to breakage than the lower-end Stantons. (This is going back to about 1990-91, the last club I worked in that used the 890's...they eventually got so frustrated with the frequent breakage and the high stylus-replacement costs, as well as the relative difficulty of finding the 890 styluses, that they regressed to using 680's). And this was *not* a club with scratch DJ's, either.
