Dynavector 20x2-L MC Phono Cartridge Plays with Wondrous Openness, Precision, Speed, and Clarity: Stereophile Class B Recommended Component a Music Direct Best Seller
The state of the art in cartridge design is always a moving target and Dynavector is not a company to rest on their laurels. This latest version of the 20x gets some pretty serious upgrades and still remains affordable, once again proving Dynavector's dedication to providing tremendous value for every dollar. The first and most obvious upgrade is the new solid aluminum alloy body lifted directly from the XX-2. More than just a pretty body, the 20x2 also gets some hot-rodded mechanicals in the form of an upgraded magnet structure and a nude mount Micro-Ridge stylus. These upgrades give the 20x2 a greater sense of warmth and naturalness while simultaneously opening up the dynamic range for greater power and subtlety.
"[It] became my new budget reference phono cartridge."
—Herb Reichert, Stereophile, Class B Recommended Component
"With a great phonostage, it achieves a degree of openness that's truly mesmerising...The way that the various instruments and voices in a mix are presented in relation to one another is particularly good, as is the ability to cope with denser passages without the soundstage closing up...This is a powerful, precise, revealing and open cartridge that warrants hi-res ancillaries, but will work a treat in any respectable turntable. In other words, the search for a Dynavector that we don't like will have to go on!"
—Jason Kennedy, Tech Radar
