The birth of the
Denon's involvement with moving coil cartridges dates back to
the 1930s when they were engaged in a joint R&D effort with NHK
to produce a high performance and high reliability cartridge for
broadcast use. The legendary DL-103 moving coil phono cartridge
was introduced in 1963, which became one of the longest running
products in audio history. The DL-103, still used by
broadcasters and audiophiles, spawned the development of
outstanding MC cartridges that continue to be an indispensable
component for music lovers, audiophiles, recording studios,
sound professionals and musicians today. The special edition
shown here is no longer available.
The Denon DL-103
phono cartridge is the only moving coil cartridge that has
withstood the test of time. Developed by Denon in collaboration
with the Japan Broadcasting Corporation Technical Research
Laboratories as a high-performance, high-reliability phono
cartridge for broadcasting purposes, the Denon DL-103 has been
in continuous production since 1963. While other "wonder"
cartridges have come and gone, the Denon DL-103 continues to
thrive by offering musical rightness. There is no other
cartridge that comes close to its legacy. The Denon DL-103 phono
cartridge has been in use for a long time in public and
commercial AM and FM broadcasting stations. It was used by EMI
and Decca as their reference for evaluating LP sound quality.
It's been evaluated, reviewed and praised by many publications
and end-users. It's been around for over 40 years. Along the
way, it has captured the hearts and minds of technical experts,
audiophiles and music lovers. It's a testament that greatness
endures. This is what comes with your ownership of a Denon
DL-103. It is a phono cartridge that you will enjoy for a very
