Assuming you are replying to me the DL-110 is an elliptical, and sort of far removed from what I am looking for.. If I'm looking for anything it's for a spherical in the same performance range as my Meister Silver or there isn't much point..

No question it is a great starter cartridge, but I also have a mediocre sounding DL-103D (I think due to age the suspension is a bit past its prime) and a Goldnote Bobboli which should be several notches up the food chain from the DL-110...

Starter mode might be the most fun place to be..

Have to admit though that I love my various SPUs and that there are definitely more of them in my future, they are phenomenal..

Yes the MS has a nude low mass elliptical, and the Classic GM E II a higher mass nude elliptical. The MS is a significantly better cartridge than the Classic, but I enjoy both, and am listening to the GM E II on my second TD-124 right now..

Royal?

Somehow I think I would want a cartridge with a moniker more like, "plebian", "prole", "peasant", "workers standard issue" or the ever popular "serf".

I kind of like the ring of "Vassal" personally..

I'd actually like to get my hands on a 90th Anniversary SPU, they aren't too readily available..

Excuse my extreme ignorance and insularity, but what does "SPU" stand for, and how do they get to a 90th anniversary? Started with cactus needles?

SPU stands for "Stereo Pick Up," and the 90th anniversary SPU commemorates the founding of Ortofon in 1918.

For a short history of Ortofon: Ortofon timeline
