    Petrat brought one of these down to me with a DL-103 in it for a bit of a play and I must say I thought it did a great job of delivering more focus, without having to go to the lengths of physical surgery on a delicate cartridge. A no-brainer for Denon fans I would say.

    Anyone interested in trying this, please PM me, and I'll post it on to you.

    As others have said, it is a useful upgrade ... the effect isn't subtle.

    This has now been posted to guero (Chris). If I wasnt in the mood for changing the 103 for an SPU then I would have brought the cap myself, I plan to keep the 103 as a back up for the future
