Denon DL-103 Moving Coil Cartridge

Over 45 years ago, the Denon DL-103 low output moving coil cartridge was born. Designed originally for demanding broadcast use, this cartridge is both robust and at the same time designed to release pure musical joy from the grooves of your record collection. Despite somewhat old-fashioned spec's it allows you to enjoy your vinyl way in advance of expectations given the cost and is incredible value for money. Mounting in your headshell or tonearm is assisted by the rectangular shape of the black moulded body, making it far easier to align for optimum tracking ability.

Each cartridge comes with its own individual frequency response graph indicating it's exact, flat response, without the usual high-frequency peak that makes many MC cartridges sound over-bright. Treat your vinyl record collection to a true classic cartridge without breaking the bank.
