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.

Hi wonder if vincent POH-700 RIAA will it work with Denon DL-103r carrtidge

Asked by: Rave 416
I would have to suggest checking with the manufacturer of the phono preamp to make sure, but from what I can see this preamp is designed for both MC and MM type cartridges. The DL-103R is a moving coil cartridge and should be compatible.
