Founded in the mid 1970’s by Dr Tominari in Tokyo, Dynavector is committed to delivering the best quality sound from vinyl. As a former physics professor at Tokyo University, Dr Tominari had a lifelong interest in music and his scientific background helped him to design, develop and produce truly innovative products. This has continued to this day and helped Dynavector become synonymous with great sounding vinyl.
