Item: Soundsmith Denon Gold 103/R Gold with almost new Boron Cantilever and Nude Contact Diamond. Location: Perth Price: $950 (ono) including freight. New around $2100 + $580 on new Boron Cantilever Payment Methods: Bank Deposit, PayPal, Cash – Pickup. Reason for Sale: Shindo upgrade Item condition and description: Excellent. Purchased about four years ago and due to snapped Ruby cantilever (after only about 300 hours) it sat in a drawer for over two years. Recenty upgraded with a Soundsmith Baron cantilever and nude contact diamond. This has had (conservatively) 100 hours since October last year in rotation with my Miyajima Shilabe and Ortofon SPU. Info from the Soundsmith upgrade page: Our new Boron cantilever and ultra low mass Contact Line stylus is an excellent replacement for those who desire to have the Boron material used. Our new Boron cantilever which holds a Nude "Contact Line" diamond of a low mass design. This combination of Boron cantilever and low mass stylus creates an ultra low mass system, capable of the finest reproduction from your cherished vinyl. The Contact Line Diamond has three times the contact area in the vertical direction of the groove wall compared to an elliptical shaped diamond. This lowers the force per unit area on both the diamond and the record groove, resulting in lower record and diamond wear. Review from Enjoy the Music - conclusion I might say that the Denon Gold was better than any two thousand Dollar or three thousand dollar cartridge. But there are so many to choose from, which one would you have me compare it to? The sonic transformation of a very good low cost cartridge into one that is comparable to cartridges costing many times more is a story worth telling. The Denon gold shares some attributes of the stock DL103 but adds many layers of articulation and transparency, midrange detail and bass resolution. I can still detect an overall similarity in the sound of these two cartridge siblings. The quality of the frequency response of this pair is still just as it was, essentially flat. The bottom line is the performance and cost of the Denon DL-103 Gold should set a new benchmark for value. This cartridge extracts so much of the music's natural body and air and I could just sit and listen and forget it was there. Full Review and specs of the standard SS DL-103 Gold - this one for sale is the SS DL-103/R Gold http://www.enjoythemusic.com/magazine/equipment/0610/soundsmith_dl_103_gold_mcp_2.htm Extra Info: All my vinyl is regularly cleaned with an Okki-Nokki. The pics: This is a very difficult cart to photograph with its tiny and dark diamond. Last pics shows box with Peter Ledermann signature
