I use the 103c and 304. I recommend Bob's Devices step up transformers, didn't need the extra gain but improved the sound considerably. See the review on 10 Audio, I didn't see it until I had bought mine but it is close to my own experience. I have NO connection to him except as a satisfied customer. I really like the 304 ; I can't give a direct comparison because I use the 103 on a Scoutmaster with standard arm and the 304 in a 12.7 on an Aries and I don't know how much the difference between them is the arm and table. I had intended to get multiple arm tubes until I saw the price. The 103 is a huge bargain, I paid about $170 on ebay new. The 304 is under $400 and still a good deal. I get more detail with the 304 and it is more laid back than the 103c but some of that is probably arm and table and the stylus will make a difference.
