First up, a lovely Denon DL-103R moving coil cartridge

This cartridge has very low hours (approximately 20 hours) and presents like new, with box and papers. The current retail on these is $449USD. This near-perfect example can be yours for just $295AUD.


“This true classic, which has been in production since I got into this hobby in the mid-70s, must be counted among audio’s most remarkable values.”

Finally, this stunning Ortofon MC Rohmann statement moving coil cartridge

Like new, with box and papers, but sadly missing stylus and cantilever after a cleaning mishap by her owner. This can be rebuilt by Ortofon, Soundsmith or Garrott Bros. Priced at $195.

This was a premium cartridge from Ortofon, built to celebrate Ortofon’s former managing director, in honour of his many years of service.

This cartridge body is milled from a solid block of aluminium and the dark blue anodized body exploits aluminium’s special damping characteristics to suppress resonance. The slim-line Nude Orto-Line diamond ensures flawless tracking of even the most dynamic passages.

MC Rohmann conveys the full range of detail and subtle nuance, even when a powerful brass section competes with the fine nuances of quieter instruments such as the flute or harpsichord. Recommended load: 100 Ohms or more.
