Dynavector XX-2 MKII Cartridge 782 Hours Original Owner
For sale is my Dynavector XX-2 MKII Cartridge. Original owner. Purchased from an authorized dealer, Signature Sound (Rich Brkich), on November 13, 2013. I have put on 782 hrs on the cartridge since that time. It has remained on my VPI TT / Moerch Arm except when it went to Mike Pranka, US Distributor for Dynavector-USA on September 6, 2017 for a professional cleaning and inspection. It came back with a clean bill of health.
These cartridge routinely go for 1000 -1500 hours, so you are getting a $2000 cartridge with some usable life at a very nice price. If you have ever wondered about the sound of this cartridge this is your opportunity to try it out for a minimal outlay of cash.
If you are unfamiliar with this cartridge here are some of its specs:
Output Voltage: 0.28mV
Low compliance: 10x10-6 cm/dyne VTF: 1.8 - 2.2g
Line contact stylus tip
6mm solid boron cantilever
Recommended load: >30 ohms
This cartridge paired very nicely with my mid-mass Red Dot Moerch arm. I kept it at a light VTF of 1.83g and it never had problems tracking. Currently mounted on my Moerch arm as shown in pics.
I keep track of the hours using a click counter which I manually “click” one time for each side or partial side of any LP I play. When I say 782 hours you can be assured that that is a conservative representation of total hours that this cartridge has seen.
Original packaging. Original box, screws, stylus guard, instruction sheet. Please note that the Soundsmith screws shown in the photo of the mounted cartridge are not included.
Why am I selling? I simply do not listen to my analog front end thanks to the convenience of my digital kit. Therefore, I have reluctantly concluded that it is best to begin selling off my analog gear.
No tobacco household. No pets. No kids. 7/10 condition for rub marks and dust consistent with the Dynavector’s age and current usage. This cartridge has been well cared for.
