Dynavector 10X5 High Output Moving Coil MC Cartridge

Dynavector XX2 MK2 Moving Coil MC Cartridge

The Dynavector XX2 MK2 Moving Coil MC Cartridge was the first cartridge to feature the 'magnetic flux damper' (patent) and softened magnetism (patent) processes that reject the magnetic fluctuation that is detrimental to a mc cartridge performance.

Dynavector XX2 MK2 Moving Coil MC Cartridge

The XX-2 retains the benefit of the flux damper and still features the Alnico magnets. These have many magnetic advantages and offer a clearly discernable improvement in sound quality with superb bass  slam and an exquisite top end.

This was cartridge to feature a magnetic flux damper and softened magnetism processes that reject the magnetic fluctuation that is detrimental to a moving coil cartridges performance. The The DV XX-2 MKII retains the benefit of the flux damper but features the Alinco-5 magnet and the similar rigid construction to the Te Kaitora Rua. Alnico magnets exhibit high magnetic flux density combining with a low coercive therefore magnetic resistance is lower than other magnetic types such as rare earth and ferrite, providing the exceptional stability of the XX-2 MKII output voltage. There is also the additional advantage of low magnetic and electrical resistance contributing to a discernable improvement in sound quality.

The XX-2MKII also exhibits deep powerful bass, treble is both clear and lively possessing none of the hardness found in many moving coil designs.

The XX-2MKII also features a 6 mm solid boron cantilever fitted with a Pathfinder Line contact stylus. PCOCC (pure copper ohno continuous casting process) copper wire is used for the coil. The output voltage of 0.28mV is higher than that of the XX-2 and 6 ohms impedance are suited to most moving coil phono stages.

For ridgity of construction the XX-2 MKII cartridge body is machined from 7075 aluminium the hardest available. However, having only a total weight of only 8.9 grams it is suitable for a variety of popular tonearms.
