In Stock An In Stock item is available to ship normally within 24 business hours.
Preorder A Preorder is an item that has not yet been released. Typically the label will set a projected release date (that is subject to change). If a projected release date is known, we will include this in the description in red. Other Preorders are set to release "TBA." This means that release date is yet "To Be Announced". The Preorder can be released anywhere between weeks, months or years from its initial announcement.
Backordered An Out Of Stock item is an item that we normally have available to ship but we are temporarily out of. We do not have a specific date when it will be coming.
Awaiting Repress Awaiting repress titles are in the process of being repressed by the label. No ETA is available at this time.
Expected On When an item is Out Of Stock and we have an estimated date when our stock should arrive, we list that date on our website in the part's description. It is not guaranteed.
Special Order A Special Order item is an item that we do not stock but can order from the manufacturer. Typical order times are located within the product description.

Custom-Made for VPI!

custom made VPI/Dynavector 20X cartridge with 1 millivolt output and threaded screw holes in the aluminum body is now available. Combining the speed of the low output with the richness and low noise of the high output makes the VPI/Dynavector a perfect combination.

Dynavector gained a reputation long 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 Dynavectors designed to work with MM inputs so saving the expense of having to change electronics to suit a low output MC. Dynavectors crucial breakthrough was to design a coil winding machine capable of working with extremely fine wire so giving a high output to mass ratio.

DV-20X has a solid aluminium-alloy body similar to the XX-2. This makes a rigid platform for the cartridge motor and aids secure fitting to the arm. The cantilever is a 6mm length hard aluminium pipe cantilever with a perfect elliptical nude diamond stylus.

The magnetic flux damping and softened magnetism along with powerful Neodymium magnet gives out the 20XH a healthy 2.8 mV output at a suitable impedance for most MM inputs. The 20XL has an output of 0.3 mV ideal for most MC phono stage.

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 quality MC amp input.

A compliance of 12 cu and weight of 8.6 g mean the 20X'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. The recommeded load resistance for 20XH is over 1K ohms it means typical 47 Kohms for MM inputs is suitable. The recommeded load resistance for 20XL is over 30 ohms.
