So the Denon DL110 is now on..Again I am a bit worried..The Anti Skating on my Kenwood is unusual..You need more than it says on the anti skating gauge,,I think most of you will agree you usually need under..About .4 of a gram more that the VTF is the nearest I can suss it out to be..Well with the Denon I have a gram more,,this is not consistent,even then it skates inward on an anti skate band,,yes I know they are not accurate,,but at least they are a rough indication of what is going on..
I hear talk of the Shure SFG stylus gauge I use and the Denon DL110's magnets interfering with the proper reading..This is making me nervous the Denon is possibly tracking too heavily..
How does the Denon sound..I've tried it with much less music than the Shure so far,,I really like it so far too..But as I say I am cautious about the weight and anti skate at the moment..
The Denon does not clear track 3 on the HiFi News test disc either..But it has had about 2 to 3 hours on it max..
Sorry I can't do a more detailed scientific test with instruments etc...
The M97xe is tracking at 1.85 grams with brush engaged,,making it 1.35 grams theoretically..
The DEnon at 2 grams on the Shure scale..But as I said above I am worried...
