Is it a good cartridge - yes
Is it a good match with your TT/arm - Yes
Surface noise.... mmmmm - here we meander into things like:
1) Are the records thoroughly clean?
2) Are they damaged (if there is vinyl damage causing the noise, no amount of cleaning will improve things)
3) Some cartridges have a rising top end - which will highlight clicks/pops, others have a falling top end - which will make them appear less prominent.
4) For MM/MI cartridges (including the MP110) the rising/falling top end can also be adjusted by changing the cartridge loading - both capacitance and resistance - with substantial impact on the sound of the cartridge, as well as its sensitivity to noise - I strongly suggest reading the threads on cartridge loading, and finding out what the capacitance of your Turntable and phono stage are...
I would suggest that the MP110 would be a good choice - and for future upgrades you have access to the MP200 stylus as well!
bye for now
