Feedback: I just wanted to thank you. You fellas run a class operation. Thought I'd share this mornings AudioKharma post with you. I drove down to Audio Classics yesterday to pick up the DL103R. 1st of all, they are about the most friendly, helpful people I have ever run into in the business. I would highly recommend you visit if it's close to you. They are more than willing to let you listen even if you're not ready to drop big cash, and don't give any hint of the old "audio snobbery". That being said, I bought the DL-103R, their custom in house built MC head amp - the ACP-1, which has 4 different load inputs, and a set of Kubala-Sosna cables. After setting up the cartridge, I started listening. The midrange is as open as anything I've heard in many years, with very good high end as well. Pianos, Cymbals, and Sax are breathtaking, noise is maybe 20% of what it was. I then decided to move from the 40ohm tap through the range to see if it matters - does it ever!! Worse - loss of high end level and clarity @ 90ohms (drop in level too). OK - try 20ohm, much better - more and better of everything the 40ohm was doing. More maybe on the 10ohm tap. Nope, harsh and siblance, just a touch, but not for me. Back to 20ohm with some more varied material, geez, the mid is so smooth ..... Audibly as flat (f response) as I've ever had the system, with all tone controls off.....The DL-103R might not be the ultimate or most prestigous cart out there (I really want to try the Dynavector), but for now I think I got a lot of bang for the buck and am going to enjoy it for a while. I suppose I'll have to consider an amplifer change next, but that'll have to wait till the piggy bank fills up again. S.M., NY
