Ortofon Quintet Black or Dynavector 20x2L


I own a VPI Prime with PAD Venustas phono cables to a Parasound JC3+ with a Dynavector 20x2L. Amp is Decware SE35I.5 SET, and that goes to Zu Omen Defs MKII with Radin upgrade.

Im thinking of getting a new cart, maybe with a tad more warmth, but I could be pursuaded to just trade it in and get another 20x2. I’ve heard that Ortofons work well with primes, so that’s an option.

Thoughts?

If you already have one why buy the same thing again?
I'd hate move to a worse thing
Only the XX2, but maybe interesting for you.

(here a comparison between VdH and DV https://youtu.be/mcoBxztdA1s?list=PLi2X2-vtd2DyKsMWeXys6ZgM57izcUeCx)
The Quintet Bronze should have the warmer signature and the black more detail, if they’re similar to the the Cadenza line. Also, the Black has a Shibata stylus. I’ve read that shape is closest to the cutting head’s but also has a comparatively rapid rate of wear. 1000 hour estimate on my Cadenza Bronze as compared to my Dynavector XX-2’s 1500. Speaking of Dynavector, my previous 20X2m was full and punchy and I never lacked for warmth. The Cadenza Bronze is fuller, punchier and way more detailed though. I think meaty is a good descriptor of the Bronze character.
Thank you for all your comments. After some research I think I'm going with the Soundsmith Carmen. Should be a bit more organic from what I've read. 
You really don't want to buy a cart based on reviews. Especially a MI design. Call Cable Company and have them send you the Soundsmith, Sumiko and Shelter. That way you can make the right choice.
