I currently have a VPI Prime turntable fitted with a ZU modified DL103 cartridge. I noticed recently that the cantilever is no longer straight so I am thinking of replacing the cartridge with the Dynavector 20X2L cartridge. I would then send the broken cartridge to Soundsmith for a rebuild to use as a spare.
My question is will the Dynavector be a good match for the Primes 3D arm? I am very familiar with the sound of the Dynavector so arm compatibility is my ONLY concern.
I have not used this combo, but theoretically, it should work fine. Most VPI arms work well with cartridges with compliance of 10 or higher, and a weight of 7 grams or higher. The Dynavector 20X2L would seem to check off both of these boxes.
