Dynavector cartridges are very popular with those who want a highly musical, balanced sound. They are clear and transparent, yet also have the warmth and body in the bass that is less apparent in other cartridges. The dynamics and timing are excellent and always produce an enjoyable listen.
Back in 1975 Dynavector was the first company to design and manufacture in volume a high output moving coil cartridge, and in 1980 the revolutionary Karat range of cartridge was introduced using solid diamond and synthetic ruby cantilevers of only 2.5mm length for the first time. This design enabled audiophiles to enjoy subtleties in the original recordings which previously they had not realised existed. Today, Dynavector's confidence in the superiority of analogue over digital sound presents a challenge to improve moving coil cartridges still further to enable them to comfortably outperform CD. With the introduction of flux damping and softened magnetism (patents applied) it has become possible to eliminate the harshness and irritating edginess which previously has been common to all moving coil cartridges.
- Dynavector 10X5 High Output Moving Coil MC Cartridge
The Dynavector 10X5 high output moving coil mc 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.£549.00
- Dynavector 20X2 Moving Coil MC Cartridge
The Dynavector 20X2 is a moving coil cartridge offered in high or low output versions. Dynavector gained a reputation 20 years ago for producing affordable high quality moving coil phono cartridges. Many music lovers were introduced to the advantages of moving coil for the first time through Dynavector ownership. A major factor was the availability of high output Dynavector's designed to work with mm inputs so saving the expense of having to change electronics to suit a low output mc. Dynavector's crucial breakthrough was to design a coil winding machine capable of working with extremely fine wire so giving a high output to mass ratio.£749.00
- Dynavector Karat 17D3 Moving Coil MC Cartridge
The Dynavector Karat 17D3 Moving Coil MC Cartridge is the first cartridge built using 'dispersion' theory. Its Micro-Ridge stylus and very short (1.7mm length) solid diamond cantilever give a reduction in 'dispersion' along with improved high frequency extension all they way up to 100KHz.£1,249.00
- Dynavector XX2 MK2 Moving Coil MC Cartridge
This is a low output dynavector cartridge with a Boron Cantilever. The XX-1 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.£1,295.00
- Dynavector Te-Kaitora Rua Moving Coil MC Cartridge
The improved Te Kaitora Rua continues the journey by incorporating many of the newest features of its Dynavector stable-mates, the XV-1s and XX-2. The Te Kaitora Rua has even managed to improve on the original's silk-like treble and openness.£2,695.00
- Dynavector DRTXV-1S Moving Coil MC Cartridge
The Dynavector DRTXV-1S moving coil mc cartridge has a unique magnetic circuit. This comprises 8 small AL-NICO magnets. The magnetic path is then divided into two - In the magnetic gap, a specially designed magnetic flux equalizing piece is placed. Then on the front yokes, magnetic stabilizing coils are wound. This produces a more linear magnetic filed than in existing mc cartridges.£3,995.00
- Dynavector DRTXV-1T Moving Coil MC Cartridge
A silky smoothness is added to the musical reality which the Dynavector DRTXV-1T moving coil mc cartridge has previously exhibited and as a result, each instrument, performer or group is clearly imaged with a warm and rich presence. Dynavector believe that this emotive musical experience cannot be achieved by a digital source and with the XV-lt they have created a "Super Analog World".£5,995.00
