Denon DL-H5LC Cartridge

Postby docjowe » 22 Dec 2003 23:06

Merry Xmas to all!
Have you ever heard of this cartridge before: Denon DL H5LC; I never.
Anyway I just won it on ebay.
All I have is a technical sheet in Japanese.
I'll post it in the cartridge manuals... anyone reading japanese is kindly invited to translate it and share it with the community.
Many thanks in advance.

PS. I need an answer : what is a Denon DL 103 R compared to the DL 103
There are so many items in the 103 collection that I get confused. Even Denon.co.jp is not clear about it.(or maybe I did not search the right pages!)
Regards

Denon DL-103R

Hi Doc. From what I have been able to glean the R version of the 103 has fewer coil turns of purer copper wire resulting in a lower output impedance of 14 ohms (compared to 40 ohms) and a slightly lower output of 0.25mV (0.3mV). Rumour is that it is discontinued but I believe AudioCube2 still has them.

This is the outfit Doc.

I think the stuff comes straight from Japan. I'm waiting on a DL-102 from them to keep my 103 company.

The Excess of the Season to you :wink:
