Denon DL-103R  Moving Coil Cartridge

The Denon DL-103R is one of the few components I’ve experienced that truly serves two masters. In more modest turntables (Rega P3, SL1200, etc.), it goes a long way at making up for the shortcomings of low-budget records. Yet it also performs incredibly well in fairly expensive turntables.

Denon has been making cartridges since the 1960s, and they are still hand-wound at the Denon Audio Works Factory in Japan. This update on the award-winning DL-103 retains the smooth sound of the original, but adds extra detail retrieval with its precision-wound 6N copper coils. The Denon DL-103R manages to be a reviewer-approved moving coil cartridge at a very affordable price.
