Hard to beat at twice the price
Very few cartridges at this price with a line contact style stylus. As an HOMC, it can be used in MM input, so no extra equipment is needed. I tried a retipped DL-110 with just an elliptical stylus, which was quite nice, it just did not have that same sound. As a result, I bought new when replacement was needed: even with no break-in time, Denon's tip is just better and the sound reflected this. I especially noticed a reduced inner groove distortion. Easy to set up - from time of opening package to installed and listening was 3/4-hour. And as an aside, I find the look of the cartridge quite pleasing.
