Q&A - DL-103R

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

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.
