I ran it with a Shure M44-7, very good bass response but rolled off.
The Stanton 681EEE is just about right sounding but try to get a good stylus! It seems Stanton has Q/A issues.
JICO for the stylus. Not cheep but highly regarded. I just ordered one on the advice of beatcomber and thedeilous. I should be able to give an educated opinion in a week or so when it gets here.

I use two Grados (ME+ and a Platinum) and have zero hum issues using either my Technics SP-15 or Technics SL-1200MK5.

Grados work terrific on SL-1200s. I'm currently enjoying a Gold1 on mine.

When you ran the Shure, what VTA setting did you use?

I don't recall as the SL1200 was at a club, but the M44-7 has rolled highs and bassy sound on any TT. The SL1200 might be accentuating this.
