Mine has never been bright over the last three years. It is used on an upgraded VPI HW-19 Mark IV with a Koetsu Rosewood.
Dear Tubey: First, that "steroetipicl bright silver wire sound" is a missunderstood, when this happen is beacuse the cable has a bad design or it is the inherent quality
sound of any of the severals stages in the audio chain system. It is not for the " silver ", per se.
Now, the DP6 is an exelent tonearm and I agree with Dobjim
there is no bright sound.
Regards and enjoy the music.
