I see it is indeed, if Bretty is using some kind of phono amp then I'll stick with my DL-103R suggestion.Grottyash said:-Sigh- The standard DL103 is also a low output MC.Alears said:Bretty, Until quite recently I was using a D103R cartridge, suggest you look for one of these. It has all the good points you mentioned with your 103 plus overall improvement and a tad more in the bass department. Get them for around £250. Having said that I have just noticed your kit and you may like to ignore the above as the 103R is a low output MC and you would need a phono preamp. A well, I'll put my thinking cap on again!
