Most helpful reviews

Ian, Newcastle upon Tyne Valve based Hifi

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
A truly outstanding highoutput MC cartridge. A considerable step-up on my Linn K18 for considerably less money. The cartridge seems to avoid alot of surface noise that was more apparent with othewr cartridges I have tried in the past.
Bad points:
A bitt fiddly to fit.

Output slightly lower than MM carts, therefore need a phonostage with high gain to get the best from this cartridge.

Ron, County Durham HiFi enthusiast 40 years

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Tremendous value for money high output moving coil cartridge. The cartridge tracks the record groove exceptionally well - better than a range of similarly priced moving magnet cartridges I have - and the sound is clear and natural. It is not over analytical nor does it emphasise bass and is therefore an easy choice when you don't know which higher priced cartridge is right for you! I doubt I will go on to spend more for some time...
Bad points:
It is tempting to suppose spending more will yield even better results (hence an 8 for overall rating). It might, but I will consider phono amp upgrades first.

Andrew, Nuneaton

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
The DL160 is easy to fit at align as it has a large rectangular body and a stylus guard. Once settled down (after a few hours), the sound is smooth with a clear and well-projected vocal. It tracks well and some of the clicks and pops I heard with my previous cartridge are no longer audible. I'd say that this would be a good cartridge for a budget or mid-price turntable, and its fine as a temporary stop-gap on my Michell Orbe.
Bad points:
Compared with my previous cartridge - a Sumiko Blue Point Special - the bass is a bit wooden and the treble isn't as crisp, and it lacks some of the airiness, but I'd say that vocals are as good. The Sumiko does cost a lot more, though. It's a good temporary measure, but I think the Orbe could do with something a bit more up-market.

David, Leicester

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Classic high output mc cartridge providing very competitive sound at a price well below the more exotic niche brands.
Bad points:
'Bad' would be going too far. Some might find the cartridge over generous with the treble.
