Dynavector 20X2 Moving Coil MC Cartridge

In stock

The Dynavector 20X2 is a moving coil cartridge offered in high or low output versions. Dynavector gained a reputation 20 years ago for producing affordable high quality moving coil phono cartridges. Many music lovers were introduced to the advantages of moving coil  for the first time through Dynavector ownership. A major factor was the availability of high output Dynavector's designed to work with mm inputs so saving the expense of having to change electronics to suit a low output mc. Dynavector's crucial breakthrough was to design a coil winding machine capable of working with extremely fine wire so giving a high output to mass ratio.

Dynavector 20X2 Moving Coil MC Cartridge

The Dynavector 20X2 moving coil MC cartridge designs draw from Dynavector's top end XX-l. The 20's have a similar body shape to the XX-1 and share the same aluminium alloy body material.

This makes a rigid platform for the cartridge motor and aids secure fitting to the arm. We picked a 6mm hard aluminium pipe cantilever with a PE (perfect elliptical) nude diamond stylus for the 20's. This cantilever assembly is coupled to sets of coils in the 20X-H that give out a healthy 2.5 mV at a suitable impedance for most 'moving magnet inputs.

The 20X-L output of 0.25 mV suits most moving coil input stages. Both versions have been made available to help users get the best result for their own circumstances. The high output model suits valve pre-amps, basic amplifiers that only offer mm or amplifiers with less accomplished mc sections. Using a high output can also be of benefit if you live in an area with high radio frequency interference. The low output version scores where a system is set up with a good phono stage or very high quality mc amp input.

The 20X also features two unique Dynavector benefits; flux damping and softened magnetism. These two features combine to eliminate the distortions caused by excess magnetic flux produced  by the high energy magnets used in modern moving coils. A compliance of 12 cu means the 20's will suit a wide variety of popular arms such as : Linn, Naim, SME, Well Tempered etc. Standard counterweights should be fine but a few manufacturers offer options.
