    Default Step Up Transformer recommendations for a Denon DL-103

    Having not found the answer by using a search, I am wondering what a good choice of SUT would be for my Techne Audio modified DL-103 with a boron cantilever and Shibata stylus?

    It would also need to work with an AT33PTG/II.
    I don't want to spend loads on the SUT, but I want something that offers good value for money, and obviously performs very well.
    Happily dabbling with digital audio and tinkering with turntables.

    I have a K&K SUT Which I have used with a range of MC cartridges. Very good indeed build around 2 Lundahl transformers.
    I have a friend who compared it against a whole range of SUT's and this one came out on top.

    Fidelity Research FRT-3. Works great with Denon MC's and every other type of Japanese MC I've come across. Sounds good with Ortofons too.

    Best value good sounding SUT out there!!

    There was a hifi news blackhead on EBay for £50 or best offer. I'd buy that.

    I use a pair of Haufe T-7883 step up transformers. They are designed for a source impedance of 40Ohm and have a step-up ratio of 10:1, so are perfect to use with the Denon 103.
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    I've owned one. Not impressed. I found it thick and dull sounding.

    I'll second the K&K SUT's.
    Great sound with the Lundahl transformers, and Kevin is a terrific guy to deal with.

    Denon AU320. Designed for the cartridge by the manufacturer and often available around the £250 mark. Sounds surprisingly good in my system, and sports both 3and 40 ohm taps so good for Ortofon MC &c as well.

    So, Fidelity Research FRT3, Denon AU320, a K&K SUT or Rothwell MCL?
