Magnetic Phono Cartridge

Dynaco Stereodyne


The Dynaco B&O Stereodyne cartridge is a magnetic phonograph cartridge manufactured by Bang & Olufsen of Denmark, designed for superior high fidelity reproduction from either stereophonic or monophonic microgroove phonograph records.

It features a symmetrical, accurately balanced moving-iron design which has identical performance on each stereophonic channel, using four coils in push-pull pairs.

This design (on which patents are pending) provides equal compliance in all directions, full cancellation of noise and distortion components in monophonic use and smooth frequency response throughout the audio spectrum.

In addition, true stereo sound is preserved even at highest frequencies through superior channel separation.
