Dynavector DV-20X2 Moving Coil Cartridge
For more than 30 years Dynavector have established an enviable reputation for producing affordable high quality moving coil cartridges. Notedly high output models that are designed to work with MM inputs negating the necessity for equipment change or the use of setup devices required for low output cartridges.
The stunning performance of the Dynavector high output moving coil cartridges can be attributed to the exclusively Dynavector designed coil winding machine capable of utilizing extremely fine coil wire providing a high output to mass ratio.
Features and Improvements
DV-20X2 has a solid aluminium alloy body similar to the XX-2. The cantilever is a 6mm length of hard aluminium pipe with a Micro-Ridge stylus. The magnetic flux damping and softened magnetism along with powerful neodymium magnets gives the 20XH a healthy 2.8 mV output - suitable for most MM inputs. The 20XL has an output of 0.3 mV ideal for most MC phono stages.
Both high and low versions of their 20X2 are available ensure for the optimum end result. The high output model is most 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.
