Don't think they were ever $500, more like $250.

I bought one for that price from eBay seller 2kuki in 2012

The used to be $250ish a while back, but they jumped a few hundred bucks several years ago. I'm not sure why!

From what I have seen, rrp is $499 everywhere in au. 

Can be had about $380 importing them yourself. 

 

If you search the for sale section here they seem to go for about $250

At $250 brand new, seems like a good deal.

The Denon is streets ahead of the Orto Red.  Completely different league.  You will love it.

The blue is a great upgrade but to my ears the Denon has better dynamic range.

Are they still made? or am I thinking that the DL160 was discontinued?

Pretty sure 160 was discontinued.

 

110 and 103 are the range now.  I think you can still buy a new 301 though.

Yes, looks like it. The 103 is available at $269 and is a superior cart but for me it's not a good fit for my tonearm

Thanks. My Denon TT has an inbuilt phono amp and came with a MM cartridge. If I understand correctly I could replace it with a high output MC but that's not DL-103. I may wait to see if the 110 comes back in stock.

spewing i missed this.

would have grabbed one for my Technics SL1200mkII

 

i think the DL110 is a better match for that arm than the DL103 or DL103r when looking at the VE resonance calc and from what i've read.

Same thing, available in Melbourne on eBay for $285, if that has any appeal. I was thinking about it...

Thanks @Uncle Seth, I appreciate the heads up.

Since that post I actually had another opportunity come my way which I have taken up.
Funny how quickly things change in this hobby LOL.

 

$285 delivered is still a cracking price.

I just checked amazon since I saw your post and its back on there for $280 delivered, little more expensive than the offer last week but but still "cheap".

Amazon AU must have done some sort of deal with Denon last week because they had amps and dacs and all sorts of stuff heavily discounted.  A mate of mine picked up some great kit for bargain prices.
