I had both. The 20x I think is clearly better. To me it simply sounds like a better 10x5. Before I read you whole post I was already thinking to recommend the 17D. That is where the performance takes a big leap. That cartridge sounds so good for the money, biggest bang for the buck I've had a chance to hear. I also have the XX-2 and I think it is better than the 17Dmk 2 but there are aspects of the 17D that better it and even maybe better the Shelter 90X to some degree. I've also heard a few Grados and they seem like a big letdown compared to the Dynavector stuff.
