Dynavector DV10X5 MKII phono cartridge
Shipping Time: 72 Hours
First released in 1978 and recipient of the then-famous CES Design and Engineering Award in 1978 & ’81, the current Dynavector 10X5 Mk2 represents a new benchmark in high-output moving-coil cartridge performance that does not require a step-up transformer nor moving-coil phonostage.
The Dynavector 10X5 Mk2 Dons a Shibata III Diamond 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 for which Dynavector is world-renowned. The 10X5 Mk2 also features an improved stylus-assembly with in the nude diamond “Shibata III” line-contact stylus as well as in the 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.
Legendary Dynavector coil-winding technology uses the finest wire, and has enabled Dynavector to minutely increase the coil windings to reduce impedance to 150ohms whilst retaining a hearty 2.8mV of output. Mounting the cartridge to the tonearm is achieved by bolting the rigid, aluminum head-block to the headshell via supplied bolts & key.
