No one seems to know the exact dimensions of the DL-110 stylus. Denon does not publish tip specs, only shank specs. I don't think it is a fine line profile, probably a traditional elliptical profile. If you hear a lot of IGD with this cart, that is why. W/R/T surface noise, the output of the cart is low compared to say a 4MV or 5MV moving magnet cart, which means more gain, and more noise generally unless you have a very expensive, very quiet phono pre. RE: the AT95E, I consider it a passable entry level cart and nothing more. It's a good choice for someone on a budget but there is so much better out there, both in the more expensive AT MM carts as well as what other brands offer.
