The XX-1 was the first cartridge to feature the 'magnetic flux damper' (patent) and softened magnetism (patent) processes that reject the magnetic fluctuation that is detrimental to a mc cartridge performance.

The XX-2 retains the benefit of the flux damper and still features the Alnico magnets. These have many magnetic advantages and offer a clearly discernable improvement in sound quality with superb bass slam and an exquisite top end


Dynavector is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of high performance moving coil cartridges and has been at the top of its game for over four decades. Using their patented magnetic flux damping and softened magnetism mechanisms, Dynavector’s range of cartridges are certainly innovative. Hearing a standard moving magnet cartridge and Dynavector’s moving coil cartridges you’ll be blown away by the difference in sound.

From their entry level MC 10X5 cartridge to the top of the range DRT XV-1t, Dynavector cartridges can help take your listening experience to the next level. Their high output models are designed to work with MM inputs, perfect for those just starting their upgrade journey in the world of vinyl.

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.
