Stereo Moving-Coil Cartridge

Dynavector DV-10X5


The Dynavector DV-10X5 features a unique flux damping and softened magnetism (patent) along with powerful neodymium magnet that combine to eliminate any hardness or irritating edginess that commonly occurs in many moving coil cartridges.

Dynavector are also renowned for the capability of winding the finest coil assemblies - this has enabled them to minutely increase the coil wire diameter in the 10X5 to achieve a reduction in impedance to 150 ohms, whilst retaining a healthy 2.8mV output and ensuring rugged and reliable circuitry.

The DV-10X5 also features a newly designed aluminium head block to provide a rigid platform for the cartridge motor and secure fixing to the tonearm.
