I own both carties. I also own the VPI Classic. The DV 20X2 H is my back-up carty; the Zephyr is my primary. I think the Zephyr is an all-around better sounding carty. IMHO.

I have used both in my VPI Classic. The Dynavector was very dynamic, but less refined than the Zephyr. The Zephyr recreates a deeper soundstage and is more neutral to my ears. I prefer the Zephyr on all types of acoustic music. The Dynavector gets a slight edge on loud rock, but that's all. My verdict: the Zephyr is the superior cartridge.
My system consists of:
-Mirage OM-7 speakers with HiDiamond Speaker cables
-Bryston B100 SST integrated amp
-Rega Apollo cd player with Audreal DAC (made by Xindak)which has tube and solid state outputs. I use the tube mostly.
-HSU ULS-15 sub
-VPI Scoutmaster table
-Decware ZP3 tube phono stage (next week) Right now it's a Rega Fono
I am open to suggestions! Thanks.
