RE: the only thing I can pick at...

I agree, Denon DL-103 is a much better cartridge after the initial 40 - 50 hours playtime. I think I'm now around its hundredth hour, so the cart should be fully broken in.

When I play my old scratchy copy of Abbey Road, it sounds simply fantastic. It totally destroys the 2012 180 g remaster!

The only thing I can think of is VTA. 180 gram LP is thicker, and maybe my DL-103 is not calibrated for that thickness? Rega RB300 unfortunately doesn't have VTA adjustment.

What do you think? Could VTA be the culprit?
