Dynavector cartridges are very popular with those who want a highly musical, balanced sound. They are clear and transparent, yet also have the warmth and body in the bass that is less apparent in other cartridges. The dynamics and timing are excellent and always produce an enjoyable listen.
Back in 1975 Dynavector was the first company to design and manufacture in volume a high output moving coil cartridge, and in 1980 the revolutionary Karat range of cartridge was introduced using solid diamond and synthetic ruby cantilevers of only 2.5mm length for the first time. This design enabled audiophiles to enjoy subtleties in the original recordings which previously they had not realised existed. Today, Dynavector's confidence in the superiority of analogue over digital sound presents a challenge to improve moving coil cartridges still further to enable them to comfortably outperform CD. With the introduction of flux damping and softened magnetism (patents applied) it has become possible to eliminate the harshness and irritating edginess which previously has been common to all moving coil cartridges.

The new 17D3 Karat Diamond is the first cartridge built using 'dispersion' theory. Its Micro-Ridge stylus and very short (1.7mm) solid diamond cantilever give a huge reduction in 'frequency dispersion', unmatched dynamics and a high frequency ext...
