In 1999 Dynavector released the revolutionary DRT
XV-1 stereo cartridge that pioneered the unique topology that included
8 Alnico magnets, magnetically stable front yokes, square shaped
front armature within the rather spectacular deep "v"
shaped front elevation.
Combined with Dynavector's patented "Flux Damping" this cartridge
quickly became the worldwide benchmark for music lovers and the audio press alike.
The subsequent flagship design for Dynavector the XV-ls released
in 2002 refined and improved the technology. Retaining the patented
Flux Dumping but included the magnetically stable front yoke with
the unique square shaped aperture and improved magnetic equalizing
component, all encompassed in an African Ebony body to provide further
stability for the magnetic components.
First inspection of the new DV XV-lt reveals that although it is
unmistakenly Dynavector, the body beautiful is Urushi lacquered
over a precision machined component of heat treated bamboo that
has been assiduously selected for both design, elegance and acoustic
Dynavector's patented Flux Damping process has been retained in
concert with new ground breaking innovations that will quickly establish
the XV-lt as not only the Dynavector flagship but set the contemporary
standards in analog music reproduction.
Technology abounds within the XV-lt but the Dynavector "rai-son
d'etre" is making the technology invisible
and allowing the music to emerge like never before.
A silky smoothness is added
to the musical reality which the XV cartridges have 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
History of the DRT XV-1 MC Cartridge
