DENON DL160 HIGH OUTPUT MOVING COIL [Expired]


no longer for sale

USED DENON DL160 CARTRIDGE FOR SALE. 
A FEW NOTES ON THIS LISTING:
1) DO NOT ASK ABOUT HOURS. I HAVE TRIED TO BE AS HONEST AS POSSIBLE ON THE AMOUNT OF USAGE, BUT THAT HONESTY MEANS, I DON'T REALLY KNOW. I SEE CARTRIDGES LISTED WITH 200 HOURS, 25 HOURS... REALLY? NOT 220? NOT 27? WERE THESE HOURS METICULOUSLY TRACKED? CAN YOU DOCUMENT IT? SECOND, HOURS ON A CARTRIDGE ARE NOT MILES ON A CAR. WHAT REALLY MATTERS IS WAS THE CARTRIDGE PROPERLY MOUNTED? WERE THE TRACKING FORCE, ANGLE, ANTI-SKATE ALL SET PROPERLY? WAS THE CARTRIDGE CLEANED AFTER EACH RECORD SIDE?    
2) NO LOW BALL BIDS. ON THE FIRST LISTING SOMEONE ACTUALLY MADE AN OFFER FOR $50 LESS THAN THE ASKING PRICE. JUST TO LET YOU KNOW I TURNED DOWN FOUR OFFERS FOR $100. THE DL-110, WHICH WAS A MODEL DOWN FROM THIS ONE IS NOW SELLING FOR FROM $249-$299. YOU CANNOT BUY A MC CARTRIDGE FOR UNDER $229--AND THOSE ARE LOW OUPUT MOVING COIL. EVEN IF THIS ONE IS A COMPLETE DISASTER YOU CAN HAVE IT RETIPPED FOR $200.  
3) I HAVE ALWAYS OFFERED A NO-QUESTIONS-ASKED RETURN. THAT CAN BE RISKY WITH CARTRIDGES BECAUSE THEY CAN BE ALTERED, BUT AT SOME POINT YOU HAVE TO TRUST PEOPLE.    
4) SO WHY SELL? I HAVE TOO MANY CARTRIDGES AND AM SAVING UP FOR THE NEW SOUNDSMITH IROX, WHICH IS MUCH MORE RUGGED. 
INFO:

THIS IS A HIGH OUTPUT MOVING COIL CARTRIDGE SO YOU DON'T NEED ANY SPECIAL STEP-UP TRANSFORMERS FOR IT TO WORK. IT WILL WORK WITH ANY AMP/PREAMP THAT WILL RUN MOVING MAGNET CARTRIDGES.

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

THE DL160 WAS AND STILL IS CONSIDERED SUPERIOR TO THE DL110 WHICH IS STILL BEING PRODUCED AT A PRICE FAR MORE THAN THE 160 SOLD 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 IT WAS BEING ALTERNATED WITH A DYNAVECTOR. 

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. 
CARTRIDGE IS CONSERVATIVELY RATED AS A SEVEN JUST BECAUSE I DO NOT KNOW THE HOURS OR HAVE A MAGNIFIER WITH ENOUGH POWER TO CHECK OUT THE STYLUS. COMES WITH MONEY BACK GUARANTEE.
