Dynavector XX-2 or Air Tight PC3
Looking to buy a NEW cartridge, in the 2-4K range. This $ range covers these two cartridges, as the XX is $1950, and the PC3 is around $3900. I am leaning toward the XX-2, but mostly because of it's lower $ range. Obviously, an unfair comparison for the XX, at half the cost. The price of the PC3 is at the top of my $ range, making the D-V XV-1S a non factor. My Preamp is a Shindo Monbrison. I use a Choir HM-7 or an A23 (Denon 103) SUT's.
My current setup is a Well Tempered Amadeus, which my Emt Tsd-15 is a great match for. The cartridge I buy will get run in on the Amadeus, but would likely end up playing on another TT setup, which will be a future purchase. Anyone with any comparisons with these two carts, the XV-1S or PC1, I would love to hear your input. I welcome dealer input as well, because let's face it, many dealers have great experience. Just remember the disclosure, so we can all play nice in the yard here. Thanks in advance !
