I have a VPI Scout with JMW9 arm. I will be installing a Dynavector 20XL low output mc cartridge tomorrow. What would be the optimum tracking force for this cartridge on my setup? I also am wondering about VTA, I have been told the cartridge sounds best with the tail down, is this correct?
Ditto what Mofi said about VTF. When I had the DV20-XL on my Scoutmaster, I remember tracking slightly higher. About 2.1 grams. Keep in mind that tracking force can be reduced as the cartridge breaks in. Don't go crazy trying to "dial it in perfect" until you played 20 albums or so.
