Features and Improvements

Along with several exclusive Dynavector technologies that include "magnetic flux damper" (patent), 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 10X5 now features a powerful neodymium magnet and a recently designed aluminium head block to provide a rigid platform for the cartridge motor and secure fixing to the tonearm.

The magnetic flux damping and softened magnetism along with the powerful neodymium magnet gives the DV 10X5 LOW a robust 0.5mV output.

The DV 10X5 LOW will be compatible with most head amplifiers or step- up transformers making the DV10X5 LOW a first choice low output MC cartridge.
