I cry FOUL - you can not like the Sumiko Blue Point #2. 

 

At least not the one in the pic of the turntable posted . Because the cart in the pic is Denon DL-160 :atsmile:.

My mouse started "double clicking" - hence originally double post of above.
 
Really nice set of toys in the above pictures - including the Corpus delicti, the SBP#2 mounted on another table. It is very easy to loose track of which cart was mounted on which table at exactly which time the pic has been taken - it happens to everyone.
 
Enjoy listening !

Good catch! And my mistake. Sorry about that.

 

I switch between turntables often. One has the Sumiko and the other has the Denon. I still had the Sumiko in mind when I answered the question. The Pro-Ject Xperience turntable has the Sumiko Blue Point #2 and the Music Hall MMF 9.1 is now fitted with the Denon DL-160. I have a Denon DL-103r that is still in its box. Haven't used it yet. I'm hoping to try that out next year or so with either turntable. Has anyone used the DL-103r?

 

Oh, yes—and I do like the Sumiko Blue Point #2.

If you do a search on http://www.audioasylum.com/audio/vinyl/bbs.html you will find many, many posts on the 103R and lots of other Denons.  Should keep you busy for quite a while.:smile:

Yes, Denons tend towards storia mai finita. The basic 103, regardless being relatively easy structure and almost older than the hills ( introduced in 1962 , how many audio components you know to have remained in the production for 52 years ? ) - but was always a correct cartridge. Its shortcomings ( tracking ability, channel separation ) Denon tried to improve with later models - funny thing, 103 outlived most of those ...

 

Depends on the version, the ones with lower impedance tend to be less demanding on stepping up the signal.

103R also need a quite heavy arm to perform properly.

I love the NAD PP2i with my Rega/Ortofon.  So good for the money it's ridiculous.

 

Tip:  Get some good replacement inner sleeves.  Just my 2 cents.

 

These are worthy:  http://www.musicdirect.com/p-7291-mobile-fidelity-mfsl-inner-sleeves-pkg-50.aspx

Agreed on inner sleeves. Yet, an old record never impresses as much in a new inner sleeve than in something "with history and stories to tell".

When I buy some old records I'll let myself be impressed over coffee by the history of 40 years of dust, coffee- mouse crap stains and cat hairs and then I'll start cleaning.. :D

Believe it or not - I ocasionally still find white hairs from my white/black cat - she just made it to see the start of this millenium.

Question - where are the black ones :atsmile:?

Either you have dark floor/interior or someone is finding only black hairs in a another space/time continuum..:p

Well...white ones do stand out on (mostly) black vinyl better - but I next to never find a black one.

 

Anyone did study on electrostaic properties of white vs black cat hair ( from the same cat ) and their attraction to vinyl records :tongue: ?

Wise ones keep the old inner sleeve as well.  I'm not always wise.:smile:
