This thread will contain just the settings. No OT talk talk talk... I will apply moderator powers if someone will screw this up.

So, I invite you to post the cartridge settings based on your experience.

Here are my personal preferred settings for the DV carts when they are mounted on nott tables (spacedeck or dais + spacearm or ace spacearm) and used with the dynavector P75.

17D2 / 17D3:

VTF: minimum recommended (1.8-1.9g)
VTA: neutral to very slightly less than neutral
antiskating: moderate to high (but not too high)
loading: 100ohms and higher

XX2 mkII / XV1s:

VTF: maximum recommended (2.1-2.2g)
VTA: EXTREMELY NEUTRAL ONLY!
antiskating: very minimal
loading: 30 ohms and zero loading (dynavector phono enhancer setting)

20X / 10X5:

VTF: median 2g
VTA: neutral or close to neutral
antiskating: moderate
loading: 100 ohms

Arnold, here's an additional info for the
DV Karat 17D3

    Turntable: Loth-X Aida
    Arm: Dynavector DV 507 mkI

    Phono Stage: Phonomena + BPSU
    Gain: 57dB
    Load: 100~121 ohms; preferred @ 121 ohms

    VTF: 2.00g
    VTA: parallel to vinyl for "standard LPs", but the arm has VTA on-the-fly adjustment so this is a non-issue, however, I only adjust VTA for some 200g vinyls
    Antiskate: 2.00~2.15g, sometimes depending on VTF/VTA combination. Dynavector suggests to initially set to be equal to VTF, then adjust by ear; preferred setting @ 2.10


hope this helps!
