Denon DP67L

Heres a pic of my DP67L, have had this unit for a doz years, but only got it to where I wanted performance wise last year, with the purchase of the Nagaoka MP50 cartridge (This replaced my old MP30 that was suffering cantelever suspension issues, probably due to its age).
This is of an incredibly high build quality, I took of the bottom cover a few years ago and was gobsmacked at the amount of large discrete componentry inside this unit, it weighs in at around 15Kg/33Lbs.
The DP67L appears to be the same as DP72L in every way, so I'm guessing it was different models for different markets (probably Power transformer only).
DP67L features outstanding accoustic feedback rejection,which means I can really give it a crank up if I want.
Since sorting it out needle wise, I have rediscovered Supertramps "Crime of the Century", now I'm not their biggest fan, I usually find them a bit airy fairy but I will say this 1974 recording is just sublime in it's dynamics, if you don't have it, try and find it, you'll be very glad you did.
The strengths of this setup I are Acoustic, Ry Cooder-Paris Texas is wonderful, and Electronica, with Kraftwerks Tour D eFrance Annivesary issue sounding very tight and punchy.
Overall it's a keeper set-up, so I won't be upgrading anytime soon (unless of course I see.......)
