Q&A - DL-103R

Hi! Can I use this cartridge with an Accuphase E211 with AD-9 phono board and a Yamaha YP-D10 turntable?

Asked by: johnmayer
Hello, It looks like the cartridge is replaceable on the Yamaha and you are using a phono board so you will not have any issues using the DL-103R.

I own a Denon turntable DP-62L and have used a DL-160 cartridge since 1990. Will the DL-103R be compatible with my turntable? Thanks, Roy

Asked by: timberdude
Hello timberdude, The DL-103R will be a great cartridge to use with the DP-62L. We have a lot of customers that were using the DL-103D with the DP-62L, the 103R will work well.

Can I use this in my DJ set-up? I don't scratch. Just basic cueing and beat matching between mixes. I want to pair it with Technics 1200G or 1200GR. Thanks.

Asked by: Benjo
Hello Benjo, If the Technics can support 8.0G's of the cartridge that will be fine.

I have an old DP-23 warrior whose sound has become disappointing (Used to sound much better) It has an Ortofon MC. It is quite old also. Would the 103 be compatible with this unit and do you feel it would significantly improve the sound?

Asked by: Danfin
Hello Danfin, Yes, you can use the DL103 cartridge with the DP-23. The DP-23 can accept a cartridge that is 4.0-9.0g. The DL103 is 8g. You will be fine with this.

What cartridge will work with my DP-59 turntable?

Asked by: Dr Lee
Hi Dr Lee. The DP-59 specifications suggest a cartridge between 3-14 grams. The DL-103R being at 8.5 grams sits comfortably in that range. This is a suitable cartridge for the DP-59.
