  7. The Denon DL-103 is a classic cartridge and will be a significant improvement over the Rega Bias2 in terms of SQ. The Denon DL-103 is top value at $282 from ebay including freight. http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Brand-New-Denon-DL-103-Low-Output-MC-Phono-Cartridge-100-Made-in-Japan-/182355677919?hash=item2a753ed2df:g:YP4AAOSwal5YLAn4 You can always try it with your arm and sell the Denon if it doesn't suit your arm, Just make sure your phono can take a low output MC.
  8. Got motivated to play The Nightfly. Use to use this album to evaluate hi fi systems. The dynamics on this is quite startling and it's a busy mix with lots of information. If your system has weaknesses it will expose them. It certainly showed differences between the SPU and London Decca. The London Decca is a lot quicker (more detail), more dynamic and more suited for this album. Really enjoyed it after a few plays.
  9. Blast from the past - Boy George Culture Club - Colour By Numbers 1983 Haven't touched this one since the 80s, quite surprised by the SQ, playing through a London Decca
  10. Denon DL-103R sounding superb!
  11. Fitted brand new Denon DL-103 MC and adjusted price accordingly. The Dl-103 is a good match with the VPI Traveller and sounds really good. Serious buyers are welcome to come audition with their favorite vinyl.
  12. Here is a shot of the 2M Red fitted together with Origin 1mm mat
  13. Fitted brand new Ortofon 2M Red and ORIGIN LIVE 1mm Upgrade Mat Changed sale price to $790 The complete setup sounds fantastic and happy to demo to Melb buyers This is an excellent buying option for those looking for their first turntable
  14. John is a really down to earth guy, never pretentious. That's a really old picture in the article because he upgrade his speakers end of 2015. https://www.pressreader.com/australia/australian-hifi/20170101/282454233624193
