Tonarm

Stange, when i go to the Rintelen page to find arguments that a round needle is the only way i find that he uses the Magic Diamond cartridge as the best he found. Going to the Axis website i find that the Magic Diamond has a high polished elliptical needle and response goes to 40kHz, impossible with a round needle. Why was the Shibata designed in the first place ? A round needle with not decode 4 channel records.

My first cart was a Stanton 881S. I remember working in summer when a teenager to get that and a Sinclair ZX Spectrum the next year. Was boasting a "Stereohedron" tip. Greek geometry word to say Shibata. My 103R Denon has a spherical. Much better cart overall. Its the sum, not the parts for that blogger guy I guess.

Here they say it is elliptical, anyway.

Maybe they translate wrongly? The 103 range is famous for a conical rounded tip.
Another source: REVIEW: Denon DL-103R
"The DL-103R has always used a spherical stylus and boasts a relatively low output of .25mv" Go figure...

Its a very listenable secondary cart not to wear an expensive primary cart's stylus for casual listening. Poor man's SPU.

I have plenty of these, do you think are good as pre-drivers?

Yeah :/... the higher degeneration on the P-fet is the only reasonable solution, thanks.

2SA1015, 2SC1815 can be viewed as better BC550, 560. They have lower Rbb of ca. 30 Ohm compared to 140 Ohm so better log conformity and lower voltage noise. They also have better complimentary at higher idle. Usually the PNP goes astray at higher idle and has a lower early voltage. That makes this Toshiba pair lower in distortion in a parallel symmetric design with higher idle then 2mA. That goes deep into BJT physics and is beyond this post after a long day of work on my side.
Maybe people like Keantoken can jump in to explain this in detail.

Indeed even in those reviews on the German DENON website one wrote this the other that.

Mancher Tuner veredelt das Denon auch durch „Retipping" mit einer schärferen Nadel.
Nicht so das DL 103 R, auch bei dieser Version setzt der Hersteller auf die klassische Rundnadel.

Some tuners refined the Denon by "Retipping" with a sharper needle.
Not so the DL 103 R, even in this version, the manufacturer places on the classic circular needle.

-----------------------

Nadelträger (Alu, hohl) und Abtastdiamant (elliptisch) entsprechen laut Datenblatt exakt dem Standard-103.

Needle carrier (aluminum, hollow) and Stylus type (elliptical) in the data sheet correspond exactly to standard-103.
