Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just wow! I’m kind of stumped. I’ve installed this beautiful headshell/cart on my Dp 400 (My first new TT in 30 years) this time opting not to use any spacers and/or extra mat to compensate for possible VTA related issues (which I’ve done with the DL 110, 110r and 103 in the past) but wow! After proper setup with a test Lp and ignoring the obvious tail up situation I went for a test listen and I have no clue why this sounds so awesome. It’s driving me crazy while entertaining me to no end! Extremely recommended! Thank you Denon!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DL-103 (A110) The best of the DL-103 cartridges. I'v many since 1975. Always wind up back in the same place. Just like the Quad ESL-57 no match was ever found.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Impressed!! Excellent , it’s in great company with a brinkman pii and a koetsu black. My Sheffield Labs , Amanda and America of 2 different albums sound fantastic! I was surprised how good this cartridge is!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Liked so much, bought two! The DL-A110 is my favorite cartridge in my collection which includes some $1k plus carts. I like it so much, I bought another one.

Questions

Does the 110 cartridge come already mounted to the headshell?

Asked by: Engs
Hello, Unfortunately, a headshell is not included with the DL-110.

Thank you for your prompt reply. However you are referring the dl-110 but my cartridge is the dl-A110 with low output. Would the same impedance apply?

Asked by: KW Young
Hello, Yes - the DL-A110 is only available as a low output moving coil cartridge. Here is a link to the manual for all the details: https://www.denon.com/on/demandware.static/-/Library-Sites-denon_northamerica_shared/default/dwa4f5e344/downloads/dl-a110-owners-manual-global.pdf

What impedance should I set in my mc phono amp for this dl-a110 cartridge? There are three choices in my phono amp, 56, 100, 220. Thank you.

Asked by: KW Young
Hello, 100 ohms is the correct phono pre-amp impedance setting for the DL-110. You may prefer the MM setting on your phono pre-amp. It is worth comparing.

Thank you for the response. Is the azimuth adjustable on the headshell? Also, is this cartridge the equivalent to the DL-103 or DL-103R?

Asked by: Jakes Vinly
Hello, The headshell is a locking device, so azimuth adjustment on the headshell is not possible. The DL-103 and Dl-103R are both low output moving coil cartridges with a conical diamond stylus. Both require a phono pre-amp which supports a low-output moving coil cartridge. The DL-110 is a high output moving coil (which works with a moving magnet phono pre-amp) with an elliptial diamond stylus. It is quite different to the DL103 and DL-103R.

Is this cartridge and head shell combination compatible with the overhang on a Technics SL-1200 turntable?

Asked by: Jakes Vinly
Hi Jakes Vinyl, Yes - the Technics SL-1200 has an SME fitment type for a headshell, which is what is utilized by the DL-A110, and therefore allows it to work well with the SL-1200's overhang.

Will this DL-A110 Limited 110th Anniversary Edition Moving Coil Cartridge work on my DP-60L turn table? Any other recommendation?

Asked by: Duke 2
Hi Duke 2, Any one of our cartridges will work well on your DP-60L. If you do not have a removable headshell, the DL-103R is the model to go for as it is the same as the DL-A110, but without the headshell. If you do not have a phono pre-amp which supports a low output moving coil cartridge, I suggest the DL-110 as it is a high output moving coil cartridge and can be use with a moving magnet phono pre-amp.

I have an AVR-X4000 from 2016. Is the phono preamp in the receiver enough to power this cartridge? If not, do you have any recommendations for a phono preamp to work with my AVR-X4000? Thank you.

Asked by: X4000
Hi X4000, The built-in phono pre-amp in the AVR-X4000 supports a moving magnet or high output moving coil cartridge. The DL-A110 is a low output moving coil design. For this you will want an external phono pre-amp. Unfortunately, we don't currently make such a device ourselves. I would suggest looking at models by Graham Slee, Rega, Project and iFi.

I've never heard of a square stylus before ... how does that even read a record's v-shaped groove, and without causing damage?

Asked by: squarebob
Hello, With the DL-A110, when we say '0.2 mm square' we mean the stylus shank is square. The actual diamond tip is spherical in shape.
