Zu Audio DL-103 phono cartridge

Take an old Denon 103, replace the plastic body with one made from milled aluminum and you have one of the most intriguing and blissful cartridges that has ever sold for under $400. You may have to pinch yourself when you mount this heavy (14g) cartridge on your expensive analog rig and still have a sound that is supremely musical. Oh, and it works wonders for inexpensive ‘tables such as the Technics SL1200 as well.
