Dynavector are an established manufacturer of quality moving coil cartridges, designed and engineered to offer a superlative sonic performance while retaining the most accessible price possible at each section of the market. Founded in 1975, Dynavector have achieved their superior status over decades of technological refinement and true quality craftsmanship.

Dynavector launched its 10x series in 1978 and instantly scooped awards for prestigious Design and Engineering in Chicago for both 1978 and 1981. These days the Dynavector 10x range is at its fifth version: Dynavector 10x5.

Featuring a unique magnetic flux damping and softened magnetism in conjunction with a powerful Neodymium magnet shows that the Dynavector has moved on since its first predecessor from 1978. Durability and practicality has been improved in the sense that there is now an aluminium head block for attaching the cartridge to the tonearm. Dynavector’s commitment to quality has also been extended in the coil wiring. They have minutely increased cable diameter to reduce impedance to 150 ohms, whilst still producing a healthy 2.5 mV output.

Great step up... Review by Paul
Bought this to replace a Denon DL-110, on my Pro Ject RPM 5.2, with Slee M Phono & Roksan Caspian M2.

The DL-110 was no slouch, but the 10x5 is in a whole new league. Digs really deep to extract lots more detail, separation and bass. Presentation is properly holographic.

Best of all, a rare, treasured but worn record I own, which was barely listenable with the Denon sounds fantastic with the 10x5, it's that good!

As a point of note: I was all set up to make the usual adjustments for alignment and azimuth etc, using a mirrored protractor and meter. Set up the effective length and overhang, and the cartridge passed all the subsequent checks without further adjustment, implying pretty damn good quality control at DV HQ! (Posted on 17/11/2014)
