Dynavector 10x5 mc ( for mm moving magnet input ) cartridge
UK orders only
The Dynavector mc (mm input) 10x5 cartridge is so good that it has been described in one review as "the only game in town". This reputation is well earned! The cartridge is highly neutral and will work well in most systems and tonearms. The musical character of the Dynavector is a delight with its warmth and body in the bass along with exceptional clarity and musicality.
Because the moving coil gives a high output of 2.5mV, the Dynavector 10X5 can be used with mm (moving magnet) inputs. This is a tremendous advantage if you only have don't have a phono stage in excess of £600.
The Dynavector 10X5 debuted in 1978 winning the prestigious Design and Engineering Award at the Chicago CES in both 1978 and 1981. The 10x5 now features the dynavector cartridge unique magnetic flux damping and softened magnetism (patent) along with powerful Neodymium magnet.
The 10x5 also features a newly designed Aluminium head block to provide a rigid platform for the cartridge motor. Tapped holes for the headshell bolts makes mounting the cartridge a breeze and a decent stylus guard also helps.
"Bar none, I found the Dynavector to be the best overall cartridge that I have had the opportunity to hear to date, and a tremendous value to boot. I give the Dynavector DV-10x4 MKII my heartiest recommendation. In fact, I have been loath to invite my friend by for a listen. He may want his albums back!. TNT-Audio.." read more

"There's tremendous power and energy in the mid band and bass for a cartridge of this price......Anyone upgrading from moving magnets who wants a taste of the high end should try and hear it" Hi-Fi World
"The 10x5 has refined what I expect from a cartridge at this price point, eclipsing the old model and turning a real solid performer into something rather special Hi-Fi+
