DL-103 works well with arms that are medium to medium high mass. I use it on a Technics SL-1200 Mk5 with 2 grams added headshell weight, tracking at 2.75g. This works very well for me. Effective mass of this arm + headshell + weight is about 14-15g, which is similar to the Musical Fidelity arm, so it should work OK. The plain jane 103 is an excellent cartridge. Unbelievable value for the $. IMO, the best was the 103D, but that has been out of production for years.
