Further Information

Denon 103 with Mahogany woody body and just back from Soundsmith with a Ruby Cantilever / Nude Contact Line Diamond fitted. This cartridge has not been used since coming back from Soundsmith and hasn’t been taken out of the box. Only selling as I’ve overindulged a bit and now have too many cartridges.

 

The cartridge had about 400 hours on it before being sent to Soundsmith and was checked over and the suspension etc was given a clean bill of health before the cantilever and stylus were replaced.

The wood body came from a German manufacture and is beautifully made. It cost approx. $100AUS including shipping and the Soundsmith rebuild cost $566AUS including shipping. There was a 3 month wait for the Soundsmith work as they are super busy.

 

I’ve previously had both a 103 and 103R with these same mods and they are stunning and a big improvement over the already wonderful 103 and 103R. There is plenty of reading on the internet regarding the woody body mod and Soundsmith work.

 

My asking price includes shipping in Aus and NZ.
