The wait is over after nine years of Te Kaitora bliss the new Te Kaitora Rua invites you to embark and once again experience the unique.
“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.
The original Te Kaitora cartridge was the result of collaboration between Dynavector Japan and Dynavector New Zealand. The Te Kaitora allowed analogue enthusiasts to embark on a voyage of discovery to the outer limits of vinyl reproduction.
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.
Note: Te Kaitora means “The Discoverer” in the language of the NZ Maori people, Rua, is “the second version”.
