Cartridge and template for a DA-401

Post by piccinini » 09 Dec 2019 03:00

    Complete newbie :(. I’m putting together a Denon table with a DP-80, DK-2300, DA-302 and now a DA-401.

    What cartridge choices make sense for the DA-401, given the DL-303 is now so hard to find and typically well used? Non Denon alternatives?

    Also need to work out the optimal mounting distance for the tonearm. Appreciate any guidance.

    Best,

    Matt

    That arm is very light so is needing a high compliance cartridge. Shure V15-III would be a good match for this arm, typically not difficult to locate. Multiple stylus choices are available from Jico Japan. For a TT of high quality as you are building I would recommend their TOTL SAS. Their SAS/R with the R identifying ruby cantilever option is very nice.
