The Cardas Myrtle Heart is a highly evolved cartridge built on a unique Benz chassis.  A well seasoned Cardas cartridge performs well at a high input impedance of 47 k, if the system is quiet.  A lower impedance of 500-1.5 k works if the system tends to hum or the cartridge is not broken-in.  These cartridges have a standard output of 0.3mV, which is within the capability of most high quality pre-amps.
