Recommend cartridge for JVC QL-Y66F

I was lucky enough to find this gem in Craigslist over a year ago, in mint condition. The TT has an AT 142L cartridge which is not bad but I would like to get something better. I tried an Ortofon 2M Blue and even though it is a good cartridge I sold it as I thought it was a tiny bit hard. Any recommendations up to $400? That's way more than I paid for the TT, but again, it is in great shape.
I pulled the trigger on a new AT 150 MLX. Read lots of good things about it. Let's see how it works in my table. I'll post my results and comparisons to the two previous cartridges I've used so far. Thanks again to all who responded.
You'll love the AT150MLX. It's a fantastic cartridge. I own a couple of them. Give it at least 40-50 hours to break-in.
I've seen your posts on a few occasions before and see how much you like it. I also googled it and read some good comments from other users. I hope it works well with my system.
I have an Ortofon Tango MC cartridge with the S shaped arm on mine, recommended by the Needle Doctor. If you can still find one for sale, you won't be disappointed
