I still consider myself a relative new-be on the vinyl front, but mine is now a flattening knowledge curve and I have had the audio “bug” since I was a teen in the 80’s. That said, I totally bugged out back-in-the day (2012, was it?) and treated myself to the DP-A100 with the supplied DD-A100 MC cartridge (I could never have spent original MSRP!; purchased for 50% after the silly marketing frenzy had faded).
But alas, life got in the way and I am just now able to re-gear up my gear again (think divorce 🙄).
So, to those who have read this far and forgive the preamble, I wonder... what are folk’s thoughts on these components, both TT and the MC today? I’d be interested if after time opinions have solidified, either for the good or the bad. Back then folks really didn’t care much for the hype. But the MC was likened to the DL-103r, which would appear to remain a favorite among its following.
My goodness, we can now maybe add to our vernacular “Vintage, Re-Issued Vintage” for these types of products! Thanks for any random thoughts! J.
