RE: Owned a 301/II. Really did not care for it. I liked the 103s better. /nt\

"Dark and shut in"? That is EXACTLY the opposite of the way I would describe the 301/II.

What loading were you using? On my Well Tempered Reference arm, Grace 707 and SME M2, I hear open, detailed, fast, dynamic, reasonably well balanced and fairly transparent sound. I packed up my Zu103 (my second one, I DO like this cartridge), it just is not the well rounded performer the the 301/II is. The 103 sounds great but leaves a lot out.

I think the 103 is certainly an easy and reasonable recommendation, but not the one cartridge I can live with anymore.
