    Default FS: DENON DL-103C1 Limited edition, rare.

    This is a rare and high spec 103 variant from 1991 that sports a ceramic bodyshell and (C1) premium copper internal wiring. Think of it as the SA model of the time. It has similar spec to the 103R with 13ohm impedence and 0.25 output. The ceramic body takes the weight up to 9.7 This cartridge showed my R version a clean pair of heels and quickly dispaced it but I looking to thin out my collection now.

    I bought and imported this little firecracker NOS from another 103 hoarder and it has done two tours of duty in my rig on rotation and I would estimate the hours would between 65-80. It is in mint condition as I am fastidious with stylus care. Comes with all accessories.

    I would like 249 posted for it.



    Nick.

    I've just found an email from yourself in my junk folder which was sent last night at 9:30pm

    I don't agree with any of your comments...the 103C1 was playing badly the Moment I received it. I took weeks trying to set it up correctly. I then sold it thinking my SME 3009 S2 non- improved was a bad combination.
    The buyer contacted me 2 days after explaining he was also getting bad results and looking at it through the microscope he explained to me that it was looking as if it was at the end of its life which would explain the very poor sound (strange as you stated it only had 65-80 hours on it)
    Obviously I took it back as this was the right thing to do!!

    You say I was using the stylus on dirty records:
    I use an RCM and all the vinyl I have has been thoroughly cleaned with the right stuff before playing.
    You said,I dont have much confidence that the C1 has been treated particularly well:
    how dare you! I treat all my equipment with the upmost respect seeing as I've spend my hard earn cash on my setup.

    Anyway!! I'm not going to prolong this anymore.
    If your not going to either pay for a re-tip (130 from expert stylus) or allow me to return it then I'll take the hit on this as I'm not that type of person to hold a grudge.

    I hope to hear from you soon, but if not have a great life.
    Nathan.
