  1. Like most people on Stereo, I realise there are many people with much more experience them myself and I would like to try and tap that knowledge. I am aiming to save up enough money to upgrade the cartridge on my DP-60L (Straight Arm Tube - 5.5g) this year. Unfortunately I lack the know how to make a choice I won't regret. I have looked at other forums for advice but it didn't seem to offer much information as to what I should get and why. I've also noticed quite a few people have owned these decks or something similar. I have the Parks Audio Puffin phono which offers MM (47kohms) and MC (100ohms) compatibility and up to 72dB of gain so most cartridges should be fine. I current have a Linn Adikt on the straight tone arm at the moment which is quite good (better then my digital set-up) but I can't decide on what to aim for. I really like two cartridges that I've read about so far: Nagaoka MP-500 (should be fine) Jico Seto-Hori (better suited to medium compliance tonearms and a little heavy but should be fine) EDIT - Suggested cartridges and/or confirmed to work well on DP-60L: Denon DL-103R Denon DL-301 MKI (potentially MKII) Denon DL-110 Dynavector DV-20X2L Hana SL Linn Adikt From the little I know, the Nagaoka should suit the Denon fine but I'm not so sure about the Jico because it is 11g (1g above the rated cartridge weight) and I can't seem to find the compliance of it. I really have a thing for Japanese made stuff but I am happy to buy what ever cartridge seems to offer the best value. I am ultimately looking to spend no more then about $1200 all up. Also happy to buy decent NOS or Used carts. Thanks for the help in advance.
