The original XV-1 cartridge was designed to take the reproduction of analogue recording to new heights. The XV-1 achieved a standard of performance that was clearly in a league of its own. Dynavector have always remained indifferent to the endless digital formats that proport to be the next breakthrough in music reproduction, safe in the knowledge that the vast heritage of music recorded on vinyl can easily equal, if not clearly out-perform these new formats. Dynavector are seriously committed to ensure the vinyl enthusiast is well catered for and the XV-1s is further proof of this on going commitment; yet another ground breaking product, uniquely Dynavector and flagship of the brilliant Dynavector cartridge range.

Dynavector continue to research and have pushed the boundary further with the NEW XV-1s. Although the specifications remain the same a significant upgrade in both magnetic and body parts achieve a startling improvement in imaging, along with a smooth as silk extension over the entire frequency range.
Principal Improvements

The XV-1s is the latest evolution of Dynavector design and features the advanced multi magnet design that stabilises the magnetic flux density between the front yoke and the equaliser component, around the air gap.
The XV-1s also features a revolutionary square shaped front aperture with a matching square shaped armature this enables the moving coil wound armature to move in an equalised and stable magnetic flux.
Although slightly smaller in dimension the front yoke aperture is also square shape to match the armature along with a square shaped counter-bore to the equaliser component part.

Other features

  • The material used to stabilise the magnets is African ebony wood. It contributes to the best balance to the sound character.
  • 6mm length 0.3 mm diam. solid boron is used.
  • 30 micron PCOCC wiring coil is used.
  • 6 ohms impedance is suitable with most phone stages or step -up transformers.
  • New stylus guard is now available (see image below).
