Picked up a Denon DL-110 moving coil cartridge today . 1.6mv which they call high output . I have always disagreed with that as far as I see it under 2mv and over .7mv is a medium output . Thank goodness I have been in this hobby a while , the supplied mounting bolts were too short for my wooden headshell but thankfully I had 1 extra long set of bolts . Just put on George Benson which is a record I use first to check things out , so far .....so good .

I agree, that’s pretty low for HO. I just say if you need a head amp then it’s low output, if you can go straight in to a phono preamp then it’s high output ... I suppose medium would be if it ‘goes both ways’. Glad you’re enjoying it!

From the specs and reviews - that appears to be a pretty smart buy!
Several reliable sources say, essentially, that it's one of the best within its price range and beats a bunch of more costly carts. BOTH in terms of "trackability' AND audio performance!
BTW - One of the reviewers (forget exactly which one) stuck a meter / scope on it, and was ACTUALLY getting over 2 mv out of it. He stated that he [had a hunch that the Output was in fact HIGHER than the specs stated] which turned-out to be true.
