I had a Bias on my first Planar 2 and really liked it at the time. But in comparison with, say the Elys, the bass was a little flat and the treble a bit harsh.
But that's just me and that's only in comparison with a cartridge nearly twice the price.
I f you like it then it's good enough.

The Ortofon sounds good, but it's rather bright and has a pretty poor low end in my experience (P1 had the Ortofon OM5 on it). I recently bought the Bias 2 and it has a much fuller sound to my ears, without being too bright. Has a great low end too. I don't think its overpriced either.
