I have a DL-110, among other cartridges. On my turntable (a Technics SL-1600MK2), for some reason the cartridge produces a popping sound when the tonearm is raised or lowered. My guess is that it has something to do with the muting switch in the turntable, although I didn't have this problem with other cartridges.
When switching from MM to MC on my preamp, the problem goes away. The resulting sound in MC mode is good, for one it is louder, it's also a bit more upfront and punchy. In some cases it's almost a bit too much, but nothing I can't live with.
I guess there's no telling how it will sound in another system; different turntable, amp, speakers, listening room. The only way to find out is to try for yourself, and see if you like it.
