"Try this one, you're gonna like it."
The world is not brimming with high output moving coil cartridges these days, and Dynavector makes two of them; the budget DV-10X5 and this one, the DV-20XH, which is also available in a low output version, the DV-20XL. Unlike the DV-10X5, the DV-20X's feature a solid aluminum alloy body for rigidity and to enable a secure fitting to the headshell. The cantilever is a 6mm length hard aluminum pipe cantilever paired with a perfect elliptical nude diamond stylus. This cartridge looks serious in its all black finish and imposing height. It mated well with the Ittok arm on my Linn Sondek LP12, and tracked securely at 2.15 grams.
The output level of 2.8mV suited all the moving magnet phono stage.
