There has been plenty of doubt expressed on this forum about the stated compliance of the DL-103, usually to the effect that the actual compliance is higher than indicated. I'm inclined to agree with the doubters. I have SPU cartridges which also claim 5x10-6cm/dyn compliance. The Meister Silver, for example, measures a lateral resonance on my tonearm of about 9Hz while the DL-103R (in a heavy FR S/3 headshell) measures something closer to 7Hz, strong evidence that the '103 is of a higher compliance than the SPU. The slight weight difference (combined FR/Denon: 28.5g; SPU: 32g) doesn't account for much of the difference.
