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 20x2also gets some hot-rodded mechanicals in the form of an upgraded magnet structure and a nude mount Micro-Ridgestylus.
These upgrades give the 20x2a greater sense of warmth and naturalness while simultaneously opening up the dynamic range for greater power and subtlety. Few cartridges possess this level of sonic sophistication, much less ones offered at this price. Available in both Low Output (0.3mV) and High Output (2.8mV) versions, we highly recommend the 20x2.
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.
