Cautions on handling
Cabinet with natural wood exterior in dark brown
with gloss finish
Stereo MC cartridge DL-A100 included
Quartz lock servo and direct-drive system for
stable rotation
• About Care
Clean the cabinet and dust cover with the included wiping cloth.
Follow the instructions when using a chemical cleaner.
Benzene, paint thinner or other organic solvents as well as insecticide
may cause material changes and discoloration if brought into contact
with the unit, and should therefore not be used.
The player includes a quartz lock servo system that controls
rotation speed by detecting the interval of optical pulses from a
slit in the motor. Stable control of reduced wow and flutter and
high accurate rotation with little eccentricity are achieved.
A tone arm on a large die-cast aluminum base whose height can be
adjusted within 6 mm assures smooth and accurate tracing.
The combination of the tone arm and lathe machined-aluminum
head shell suppresses undesirable resonance that would affect
sound quality, as well as taking best advantage of the characteristics
of the cartridge.
The motor does not require lubricating. Do not lubricate the player.
Doing so may damage the player.
• Extrior finish
The cabinet has a dark brown glossy finish. As fine scratches may be
prominent, use the included wiping cloth to clean the surface.
Specifications
Universal-type tone arm and lathe machinedaluminum head shell
Note on lubricating
Troubleshooting
• Moving the unit
Turn off the power and unplug the power cord from the power
outlet. Next, disconnect the connection cables to other system units
before moving the unit.
The stylus tip is very delicate and requires sufficient care. Remove
dust from the stylus tip with a soft brush (included with the cartridge).
Operations
The die-cast aluminum turntable is 331 mm in diameter. Silicon
rubber covers the entire rear surface for deadening treatment to
absorb howl.
Cleaning the stylus tip
Connections
Hybrid double-layered large turntable for stable
rotation
• About Condensation
If there is a major difference in temperature between the inside of
the unit and the surroundings, condensation (dew) may form on
the operating parts inside the unit, causing the unit not to operate
properly.
If this happens, let the unit sit for an hour or two with the power
turned off and wait until there is little difference in temperature
before using the unit.
The stylus has service life of about 2000 hours. It depends on the
operating conditions. If the stylus tip is worn, high-frequency sound
will be rough and distorted. To avoid damaging valuable records,
replace the cartridge without delay.
Preparations
DL-103 was launched for Japan broadcasting Corporation in 1964,
and continued to be standard cartridge during 50 years. DL-A100 is
reproduction of engineering reference model of DL-103.
• When going on vacation or leaving home for long periods of time, be
sure to unplug the power cord from the power outlet.
Stylus life (DL-A100)
Part names
and functions
The cabinet is made with natural wood veneer overgrazed like
Japanese lacquerware, with rich, glossy finish.
• Before turning the power switch on
Check once again that all connections are correct and that there are
no problems with the connection cables.

The tone arm will not be parallel to the record with some cartridges.
For such a cartridge, insert the included cartridge spacer between the

will be parallel to the record.
Turning an insulator foot clockwise increases height, and turning it
counterclockwise decreases it.
Using a commercial level allows more accurate adjustment.
