I have a couple of 47F's, one did have the dl80, the others the 160. Using the same electronics, all tubes, I could not tell the difference. The 47F's are great machines. I've given a couple away to my children as a way to interest them in vinyl. The fully automated features of the 47F make a almost 'child' proof, and in my opinion, do not diminish its sound. I also have a VPI rig that has a $2K cartridge and the 47F comes close to being its equal. So, if you ever want to sell your 'new' 47F, please let me know.
