- Moving Coil (MC) Cartridge
- Lightweight and high performance
- Solid Boron Cantelever
- Exchange Scheme available
The DV XX-1 was the first cartridge to feature a "magnetic flux damper" (patent) and "softened magnetism" (patent) processes that reject the magnetic fluctuation that is detrimental to a moving coil cartridges performance.
The The DV XX-2 MKII retains the benefit of the flux damper but features the Alinco-5 magnet and the similar rigid construction to the Te Kaitora Rua. Alnico magnets exhibit high magnetic flux density therefore resistance is lower than other magnetic types such as rare earth and ferrite, providing the exceptional stability of the XX-2 MKII output voltage. There is also the additional advantage of low magnetic and electrical resistance contributing to a discernible improvement in sound quality.
The XX-2MKII also features a 6 mm solid boron cantilever fitted with a Pathfinder Line contact stylus. PCOCC (pure copper ohno continuous casting process) copper wire is used for the coil. The output voltage of 0.28mV and 6 ohms impedance are suited to most moving coil phono stages.
For ridgity of construction the XX-2 MKII cartridge body is machined from the hardest aluminium available. With only a total weight of only 8.9 grams it is suitable for a variety of popular tonearms
There are exchange and rebuild schemes available with this cartridge for existing owners of Dynavector cartridges. Please contact us for more information.
