no longer for sale

USED DENON DL160 CARTRIDGE FOR SALE.

THIS IS A HIGH OUTPUT MOVING COIL CARTRIDGE SO YOU DON'T NEED ANY SPECIAL STEP-UP TRANSFORMERS FOR IT TO WORK. 

FOR THE FEW WHO ARE NOT FAMILIAR WITH DENON, THE DL160 IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE. IT WAS HAND MADE IN JAPAN AND GENERALLY WAS CONSIDERED A GIANT KILLER. IN FACT THE SPECULATION IS THEY QUIT MAKING THE 160 BECAUSE THEY COULD NOT AFFORD TO SELL IT AT THE ORIGINAL PRICE.

THE DL160 WAS AND STILL IS CONSIDERED SUPERIOR TO THE DL110 WHICH IS STILL BEING PRODUCED AT A PRICE FAR MORE THAN THIS ONE IS SELLING FOR.

IF YOU WANT TO GET INTO MOVING COIL WITHOUT LAYING OUT A LOT OF MONEY, TRY THIS CARTRIDGE AND YOU WILL SEE WHY PEOPLE RAVE ABOUT THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MC AND MM.

THE SOUNDSTAGE ON DL160 IS SOMETHING TO HEAR. IT TRACKS EVEN MY MOST PARTIED OLD ROCK RECORDS WITHOUT LOSING A BEAT. 

THE CARTRIDGE IS USED, BUT WELL CARED FOR. I HAD IT RETIPPED ABOUT TWO YEARS AGO BY ANDY KIM IN SEATTLE. 

I CANNOT ESTIMATE THE NUMBER OF HOURS, SINCE MUCH OF THE TIME IT WAS A BACKUP FOR A DYNAVECTOR.  AT THIS POINT I HAVE DECIDED I HAVE TOO MANY CARTRIDGES AND AM LOOKING TO SELL SEVERAL TO BUY SOMETHING AT THE NEXT LEVEL.

YOU CAN USE THIS AS YOUR GO-TO CARTRIDGE, A SPARE OR A CARTRIDGE FOR THOSE TIMES WHEN YOU WANT TO PRESERVE A MORE EXPENSIVE MODEL. 

COMES WITH ORIGINAL BOX, INSTRUCTIONS, CARTRIDGE HOLDER AND MOUNTING SCREWS. 

I AM CONSERVATIVELY RATING IT AS A "7" BECAUSE I DO NOT KNOW THE HOURS AND DO NOT HAVE A HIGH-POWERED MAGNIFIER TO CHECK OUT THE STYLUS.
