I'm using an Technics SL1100 with its original arm and an AT440 MM, for mostly classical music. I own this system since less than one year and I begin to feel that it's much more to find about it... So I would like to improve.
Before changing the arm, I would like to find a better cartridge and i think that going through an MC model is a good step. So I look over the DENON's offer.
Questions for nice peoples who will answer me :
1. DL103 about 150$/€ : it seems the diamond is eliptical but even on DENON's site (http://www.denon.fr/produits/hi_fi/plat ... ellule/dl/
) they give only one dimension (0.2mm), oposing to the DL160 witch is also eliptical but the specs give two dimensions (0.07 x 0.14). Some mistake or lack of information ?
2. DL160 about 115$/€ - why it's cheaper than DL103 as it seems it's a model superior to the DL103 ?
3. The SL1100's original arm must be a "heavy" arm, according to what I understood surfing on this forum. Does theese two cart. fit with ? Is it an enough "precise" arm for an MC cart ?
4. Generaly, where can I find informations about the "rules" in matching arms with cartridges, about the parameters involved, etc ?
Thanks to those who will have pity of my soul !
