Q&A - DL-103R

I am interested to try this given what I have heard from others. How can I tell if this will fit my Mcintosh MT10 turntable.

Asked by: robert11
Hello robert11, The MT10 turntable uses a Moving Coil cartridge, just like the DL103-R. You will be fine in fit and function using this cartridge.

Hi, I am looking at the following 3 turntable, are they all compatible with the DL103R Mobile Fidelity Ultradeck, Clearaudio Concept, and VPI traveller Mk2? Thanks Nick

Asked by: johnwest
Hello Nick, After some research I found out what will work and what will not. The DL103R is a Moving Coil cartridge. The Mobile Fidelity is Moving Magnet. It will not work. Clearaudio Concept is Moving Coil. It will work. For the VPI I was not able to find anything to say what it used. You will have to get a hold of them to confirm.

Hello muli, Yes, that should work with no issues. Just make sure you have the phono connected to MC. With this cartridge and sytlus you will not have to replace the whole thing if something fails.

Is the DL-103R a good match for the Rega Planar 6 (RB330) tonearm?

Asked by: tonedarms
Hello tonedarms, Yes, the DL-103R will be a good match for the Rega Planar 6. The only thing I recommend is a Phono Pre-amp like this one below. https://www.amazon.com/Pro-Ject-Audio-Phono-preamp-output/dp/B007DB5I60/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8

Hi, I'm confused about the specs of this cartridge. It's a high or low compliance? I'm trying to figure out if it will match with my thorens TP-16 isotrack arm. at 7.5 effective mass. Can anybody tell me if it's compatible? Thanks

Asked by: papalotes
Hello papalotes, The DL 103R is a low compliance cartridge. They will work together. There are a few articles out there about these two working together. It is something you can do.

Hello sifihifi, Using the Pro-ject box is the best thing to do with the cartridge. Everything will work together.

Does a vintage Marantz 3250B have the senitivity and gain to use a DL103R in its MC input?

Asked by: TechSP25
Hello Tech SP25, No, but a separate Phono Pre-amp does. I like the Pro-ject Phono Box DC. https://www.crutchfield.com/p_252PBDCB/Pro-Ject-Phono-Box-DC-Black.html
