Best I've owned
Saturday, December 21, 2013
I finally bit the bullet and purchased the most expensive cartridge I've ever bought. Before this I had a Denon DL110 (I think that is the model). I have to say, I have no regrets. Seems much better sounding than what I was used to. I've had two issues though. It seems as though the cantilever suspension wore out and the cartridge sagged after a while. I've never had any mishap that would have damaged the cantilever. My VTF was always set correctly also. Granted, I play a lot of vinyl. I had used this for about a year. In fact the only way I noticed it was at the end of an album, the body would rub on the record label. It sounded fine while playing. Visually, It looked like it sagged. I ended up purchasing a new stylus, and all was well again. The second issue was, the original stylus seemed to have much more sibilance than the replacement. The second one had none at all. Was the first one faulty? I don't know.
