Dynavector 10X5 L MC Cartridge

DV-10X5L MKII Low Output Moving Coil Cartridge

Low output moving coil cartridge with aluminium cantilever

2 Years




The Dynavector 10X series High Output Moving Coil cartridge debuted in 1978 winning the prestigious Design and Engineering Award at the Chicago CES in both 1978 and 1981. The 10X series cartridges are also widely accepted at the benchmark in High Output moving coil cartridge at this price point and beyond.

The red body which is a feature of the 10X series has been manufactured for over 40 years.

It is produced in the largest quantity as a representative model of Dynavector Cartridge and is most favored for audiophiles all over the world 10X5 which was released in 2003 features a powerful neodymium magnet and a newly 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 powerful neodymium magnets gives the DV-10X5mkII LOW a healthy 0.5 mV output. Higher output is suitable for most head amplifier or step-up transformer, DV-10X5mkII LOW is the best one for first MC cartridge.

The Dynavector 10X5 MKII LOW 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.
