My comment was related to fact that you mentioned, that without retip you would not be abble to get Dynavector sound for the price. Well, you don't.
I'd trust your dealer if he put original Dyna in your setup and than swap for SS retiped one. If he is able to comment on just the sound of cartridge in the setup where original Dyna was not played my hat off to that guy. No reason to get excited. If you like the cart what does it matter if its dynavector , dynaflector or Grado???
PS and yes I do have direct experience. Peter is a great guy and we're lucky that he's around but I'm not using my cart , it just doesn't play music but hi-fi. Rega arm is partially to blame but hadcock 242 did not help either so far.

Good to hear that you do have direct experience. But I am not clear which Dyna cart you had rebuilt by SoundSmith.
XX-1 H - 3rd level retip. Most of the people I communicated with are happy with SS and so am I, that I have a good quality cart worth at least investment. Would I do it again , hmm probably not and if, I'd sell the cart right away. The thing is , similar to you I can't afford Dyna prices , even used ones are not quite accesible. I keep the cart (the only high-endish cart in my possession, with hope that some day I'll find that right combination and it will become again a musical machine it once was before I snapped that damn cantilever. Rgrds, W
PS . I use now Adcom HC/E cheap old but quite musical and engaging cart I found in somebodys drawer.
Well , you post in Dynavetor thread mentioning dynavector sound but you do not have one (and neither do I) .I will remember not to post multiple marks ;)
Not excited here (no multiple question marks, exclamation points etc). Just wanted to justify the basis for my comments. And as I noted, I am sure to always mention that this is a SoundSmith retip. FWIW to those reading my comments.
