Dynavector 10X5 MKII

High Output MC cartridge with Aluminium Cantilever

“Dynavector Cartridges Japan” is highly regarded as one of the leading manufacturers in high performance moving coil cartridges based on innovative advanced theory and unique production technology.

All of Dynavectors cartridges make use of their patented magnetic flux damping and softened magnetism mechanisms. The current models are the culmination of decades of research, development and refinement. Their musical producing credentials are immaculate as we hope you will discover when you hear them.

Description

First released in 1978 and recipient of the prestigious (at the time) Design and Engineering Award at the Chicago CES in both 1978 and 1981. The new Dynavector 10X5 MKII MC cartridge presents a new benchmark in High Output MC cartridge performance not requiring a step-up device or MC phono preamplifier.

Improvements

10X5mk2 MC Cartridge Stylus

Along with several exclusive Dynavector technologies that include Magnetic Flux Damping, Softened Magnetism (Patent) and powerful neodymium magnets that provide the smooth treble response Dynavector are renowned for.

The Dynavector 10X5 MKII also features an improved stylus assembly with the nude diamond “Shibata III” line contact stylus and improved hardened cantilever material. These improvements ensure secure tracking ability over even the most torturous of record grooves whilst achieving extended high frequency response and enhanced musical resolution.

The legendary Dynavector coil winding technology using the finest of wire has enabled the Dynavector 10X5 MKII to minutely increase the coil windings and achieve a reduction in impedance to 150 ohms whilst retaining a healthy 2.8mV output.

Mounting the cartridge to the tonearm is achieved by a rigid red aluminium head block that provides a stable platform for the cartridge along with easy and secure fixing to the tonearm.
