Recent review from positive-feedback;

THERE IS NO BETTER MOD FOR YOUR DENON I don't know how to emphasize enough but this is the most advanced modification you can do for the Denon 103 motors. You will be in the class of many thousand dollar cartridges.

The buy it now is for the body to turn YOUR DL-103, DL-103R, DL-103D, DL-103GL, etc... cartridge into a world class performer. The perimeter lead is already installed all you have to do is follow the instructions add the internal lead, tape closed (both provided) and pot with epoxy.

This lead shot, epoxy, painters tape and plastic bag are the main ingredients to make YOUR Denon a world class moving coil cartridge. Total weight is ~16 grams. Using lead to remove internal micro vibrations and rigidly holding the coils has enormous consequences. The improvements are across the board. Bass; is extended and cleaned up, tighter more focused and defined. Mid range; big improvement in clarity, speed, dynamics, and focus. With better imaging, and body to those images. Highs; extension beyond stock without being bright harsh or edgy, it truly gives you speed and delicacy allowing the music to bloom in a most natural way. The cartridge will not actually do higher frequencies it will just allow you to hear them without all the resonations and distortions that were present before.

The better your system is, the more you will enjoy and notice the higher performance parameters of your cartridge. For my personal cartridge I take this one final step further and have Andy at http: Try phonocartridgeretipping Sapphire Cantilever, Micro Ridge (MR) diamond my favorite. Absolutely delicious! Tell him I sent you.

See picture of plastic body cut away the one where I am holding it with pliers by the pin in back. This is the level of removal necessary to get proper sound and fit. If you don't want to risk your cartridge send it to me as I only charge $60- for potting.

There is no better mod for your Denon period! I have tried many others aluminum, wood and air concept bodies none of which can compete with the Pulse Guard, you even get to keep the factory guard to protect your stylus.

This body those of you that want to modify your cartridge yourself.

I also sell new already completed matched channel (both left and right channels have the same mv output) and broken in 103's or 103R's. Contact me for pricing or check out

If you want me to do the surgery to your cartridge ($60-) just notify me and send in your cartridge. Return shipping requires a signature.

Customer comments, more on my website;

"Terrence, The cartridge came this morning. I appreciate the extra efforts you made, to make sure the box came with no issues. I installed it on my Dynavector arm. I'm sure you know better than me, it might be the easiest high end arm to install a cartridge. I'm listening to my second LP side, and it sound terrific.

I see no difference, and maybe better in some areas,than my $3500. Koetsu Rosewood model. I think the R has a better mid-range. It seems to be very clear. Thank you again.

Your cable look amazing ! I do not have the funds to purchase the DAC, and wont have until the beginning of March. I would like to try a set of your cables.

Would you consider making a USB cable ? I have a DAC that I want to have an audiophile USB cable, when I attach my Macbook Air, for music. I would also be interested in 1 pair of RCA cables to go from my Phono Preamp to my system Preamp.

Thanks again. I am not on Facebook, only LinkedIn. If you would like a nice posted referral or testimony of the R cartridge, please tell me where you would like me to post it.

PS. It beat the pictured model attached ☺ Kind regards,


"I have aligned the cartridge and set vtf to approx 2.5g. I am very happy with your paradox mod. It sounds way better than my stock dl-103r. Everything sounds better! Can't wait until it is broken in. My system is a Hafler dh-101 preamp modified with MC3 mods bi Musical C, Bryston 4bst amp, Thorens td-125 MkI with Ortofon Rs-212 tonearm, and Snell CV speakers. Your Paradox mod has made my vinyl sound way better. Oh yeah, foot tapping alright! Thanks T."

"Hi Terence Thanks for your e-mail. I'm listening to music every night with a big smile on my face. All problems with the s-sound are gone and it sounds great. My records has never sounded as good as now. I started to by records in the mid 1970 and today I can hear new things on the old records. It's great. eric"

"Very good Paradox mod! Took my cartridge to another level! A+ Thanks T"
