(*)In attached "HANASL TOPY(3)(2018.Dec)" papers, you may find quite attractive description about HANA-SL, compared with Denon-103, stating HANA-SL's remarkable superiority, in terms of higher output voltage ( .5mv against .25mV), light body weight (Versatility to wider tonearms adaptability), Trackability (Higher compliance value), and eventually a big, wide, deep three-dimensional soundstage (Shibata stylus against conical stylus).
They say,this is even much wider difference in quality,surpassing respective price difference of $750(HANA-SL) and $400 (Denon-103)
