DV-20X has a solid aluminum alloy body and a rigid magnet construction similar to XX-2MKII. The cantilever is a 6mm length of hard aluminum pipe with a Micro-Ridge stylus. The magnetic flux damping and softened magnetism along with powerful neodymium magnets gives the 20X2H a healthy 2.8 mV output suitable for most MM inputs. The 20X2L has an output of 0.3 mV ideal for most MC phono stages.

Both high and low versions of the  20X2 are available ensure for the optimum end result. The high output model is well suited to valve preamplifiers or electronics that only offer MM inputs whilst the low output version offers superb performance when combined with dedicated moving coil inputs.

Dynavector DV-20 X2 MC cartridge.
03 January 2023  | 

I ordered the low output version and finally had a chance to mount and line up the cart today. I used the “WALLY TOOLS” to line up and straighten the cart on my vintage Sansui FR 5080 turntable. Easy enough to line up. Just a tad bright right out of the box but I know this will correct itself after some hours of play.
Dead quiet in the groove of a brand new CCR LIVE at Albert Hall LP. Thank you and of course the price was right. Hope all is well.

A fine cartridge
03 March 2021  | 

Having recently had a 10x5 I wanted to move up to a low output moving coil cartridge and the 20x2 seemed like the obvious choice being familiar with the quality of Dynavector cartridges. Couldn't be happier so far, I've paired it with a Dynavector P75 phono stage running in PE mode and it's far exceeded my expectations. The detail it picks out compared to my previous high output MC with Naim 322 boards is quite extraordinary.

Wonderful cartridge!
Replaced old DV-20x.Much improvement! Listened to Mike Oldfield albums "Amarok" and "Killing Fields".Very huge soundstage, deep bass. Highest resolution. All instruments sound perfect! Good choral and mass strings presentation. Cartridge hide surface noise not missing every musical sound. Cartridge fitted to old SME Series II tonearm, custom-made belt-driven turntable. Electronics: solid-state Rotel 980-990 series, speakers B&W 805 Matrix, REL subwoofer. Wireworld cabling. AC- Mains conditioner.
Similar product: Benz-Micro ACE cartridge on Rega-Planar 3 rewired turntable.
Dynavector is better, more involving, more emotional!

Service from Analog Seduction

Gary was a great communicator. Also the distance between us was not an issue.

It was a real plus to purchase from the US. The difference between the Pound and the US dollar made this an especially good deal.

After using a Denon 304l for a good many years, first in an Elite Rock II and then an Origin Live Ultra, it was time for a change - not least of which toddler damage!!

After casting about I decided on the DV-20X2. Frankly I am shocked. Always a vinyl fan, if not dogmatic about it, I have never heard my vinyl, or my hifi sound this good.

Such an open soundstage, crisp treble, ultra secure tracking. Such space between instruments, such beautiful placing. The dynamic range and separation are qualities normally reserved for digital.

I could not be happier and am now working through my whole record collection. The CDS2 hasn't spun a disc since the Dynavectors arrival.

System is Origin Live Ultra, modified RB250, Naim 52, Supercap, modified NAP135s, SL2s.
