Re: I am really happy with my modified DL-103

Many thanks, a modded 103 sounds interesting. Does this raise it's compliance, and do you need less tracking weight than 2.5 g with the modded cartridge?

I have been told that the standard Denon 103 likes a tonearm with a high effective mass of around 15g (due to it's low compliance). The Ittok has an effective mass of 11.5 g (medium) though you can compensate for this by add weight to the headshell to raise the effective mass and this improves the delivery with the 103.
