Advice on headshell with Denon DL-110

Recommended Posts

Hey all looking for some advice on the right headshell weight to go with a Denon DL-110 on a stock SL1210Mk2 - from what I have researched so far I may need a heavier headshell than the stock  one ( maybe 12g?) What do you think? 
cheers

Matt.

Hi,

I  would suggest the Jelco HS-25 as being a good match for the cartridge and arm.

It is virtually equivalent to what I have my DL-110 mounted on and that has seen service on an SL1200 and several other arms also.

I agree. And I have a spare one I’m happy to sell if needed.

Hey ophool thx for the reply - so 12g headshell like the jelco is a good weight? Might try to find something a bit less expensive as i have gone a bit over budget with recent upgrades.

What do you think of this at 12g?

If you don't get the Jelco now the one in your pic looks quite solid and will probably do the job well. 

If you get the one in the pic now you can always get the Jelco later, and use this headshell with a cheaper cart for playing damaged records.

Ended up going with the one in pic as my brother needed a heavier headshell to go with a super OM10 - it’s a solid piece of aluminium so should be quite non resonant and is an equal weight to the jelco... my decision was purely based on this as MrThorens offered the Jelco to me shipped for a good  price. I haven’t posted much around here in a while but the community seems as great as it ever was... your advice is appreciated.
