Supply Infomation



     (Item price & shipping cost reduction approx. 10% due to exchange rate fluctuation. 2022.6.26~)

  This is a superior sound-improving accessory which replace the plastic body to premium wooden body.

  Description :

   1. Size : 18W x 25.5L x 14H (mm) , 0.7W x 1.0L x 0.55H (inch).

Species :
      a. Mpingo (African Blackwood, Botanical name : Dalbergia melanoxylon) 
      b. Panga panga (≒Wenge, B
otanical name : 
Millettia stuhlmannii)

   3. Weight : Mpingo 3.5~3.9g/ea, Panga panga 2.3~2.6g/ea  (Denon original plastic body 1.6g)

   4. Packing included :
      a. Wooden body 1ea.
b. Aluminum flathead bolt 6mm(0.23inch) & 10mm(0.39inch) length each 2pcs, total 4pcs are included by free of charge.

           These are order-maded specially by us and applicable to almost headshell of various thickness.
       c. Exclusive hardcover case.

   5. Finishing : 2~3 kinds of premium German natural oil applied on fine-sanded surface.

   6. Material quality : processed with sound materials selected very strictly from 7~10 years air-dried blocks in Korea
       after import from East Africa.

   7. There are somewhat distribution of wood grain & color due to natural material.

  Application: DENON 103, 103R MC Cartridge

   ※ Application limitation : can not use to 'Audio Technica' headshell and 'PE' turntable 
       which have to be screw from lower part to upside.

 Mpingo is well-knowned already with its outstanding improving ability of sound quality.
Bored sound color goes into more refined and exclusive sound with woody feeling.
In particular, this show strength at classic due to its haute tone color.

Panga panga is also African premium hardwood species, and it can be get more
warm & rich tone color due to its unique grain structure.
       Thus it is good for old popular music.
It can be arises a question how can get this tone from Denon103.

 VTA control to adjust horizontality of tone arm is not easy because Denon 103
body height is low. The cartridge height rise naturally with our wooden body,
       and so 
VTA control become easier.

  Replacement :
    This body is a glue-bonding type, not pressure-fit type.
    White wood glue can be apply, but instant glue is not recommendable.
    Please try to replace carefully according to below instruction and photo.

Step 1 :
    When protection cap of cartridge is covered, you do inserts knife blade at
     green arrows on photo (1) and cuts slowly. Then, it should be separate glue layer
     completely between main body and plastic body after careful and repeated cutting.
Please refer bonded points on photo (2) to be insert knife blade.

Step 2
    Put sharp blade or screwdriver in to the gap slowly, as red arrows on
     photo (3), between plastic body and main body at lower part of the cartridge
     pin, and then spread the gap carefully. Be careful not to break the tip!
     Then cartridge main body will come up slowly and completed the separation.

Step 3 
     Apply some woodglue on area green-lined of main body like photo (4), and put it
     in the wooden body and fix them.
At this time, please do not force too hard on main body.
     Please use this replaced cartridge after one day as it need time for fully hardening.

     We sells this wooden body only, and buyer have to do separation of
     original plastic body & fitting in our wooden body by yourself.

     We do not take any responsibility in all problem like stylus damage
     which can be caused by buyer's carelessness during replacement work.

 Buyer's review

   -. "Sound change haute very and gracefully, and so it should not be enviable over
       USD900 price range cartridges."

   -. "
A week passed a little. Cheap Denon DL-103 cartridge is figuring its sound
       gradually. It is not expressionless sound anymore of Denon 103 that have
       always felt near 30 years. It make sound that entertain fragrance nicely.
       In particular, it is suitable at sound of a piano."

   -. "I have tuned the housing with clubWOOD's Mpingo.      
       There were quite sound difference than existing Denon 103.      
       A little stiff sound of Denon 103 goes to haute and carm sound with woody feeling.
Recommend to person who listen to classic."

             Do not loose your chance to enjoy more improved sound!
