Hi and thanks for looking! This ad is for a brand-new Denon DL-A100 Low Output MC Phono Cartridge. Built to celebrate Denon's 100th anniversary, this cartridge is a special edition "finely tuned" variant of the DL-103 and features a clear body which looks amazingly cool when mounted. The sound is pure Denon, or as Stereophile put it: "big, open, clear, and emotionally riveting." With a modestly low output of 0.3mV, an MC phono stage with 60dB of gain (or better) is recommended.
This cartridge was originally included with the DP-A100 turntable, not purchased separately, so it doesn't come with the Denon booklet mentioned in the Stereophile review. The DL-A100 comes mounted in a special plastic showcase which also protects the cartridge during shipping. The 9/10 rating is for a little wear and tear on the outer box, the cartridge itself is pristine. This DL-A100 comes with a certificate of authenticity which also certifies the output of this specific cartridge (0.38mV) as well as a stylus brush, a stylus guard and mounting screws which are the same ones that hold the cartridge into its packaging.
Shipping anywhere in the CONUS is a flat $15 via FedEx Home, anywhere else, please contact me for a ship quote.
