XV-1s Background of Development
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
At a glance, the XV-1 was always different from all
cartridges that have gone before. Its magnetic circuit comprises
8 small ALNICO magnets. The magnetic path is divided into two -
In the magnetic gap, a specially designed magnetic flux equalizing
piece is placed. On the front yokes, magnetic stabilizing coils
are wound. By this special combination, the magnetic field becomes
widely homogeneous and more linear than the conventional magnetic
design that is common in existing MC cartridges.
The XV-1 has been awarded 'Golden Ear
Award 2001' in the Absolute Sound magazine for its
highly advanced technology.
Dynavector continue to research and have pushed the boundary
further with the NEW XV-1s.
Although the specifications remain the same a significant up upgrade
in both magnetic and body parts achieve a startling improvement
in imaging, along with a smooth as silk extension over the entire
is the latest evolution of Dynavector design and features the advanced
multi magnet design that stabilizes the magnetic flux density between
the front yoke and the equalizer 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 equalized and stable magnetic
Although slightly smaller in dimension the front yoke aperture
is also square shape to match the armature along with a square
shaped counterbore to the equalizer component part
material used to stabilize the magnets is African ebony wood. It
contributes to the best balance to the sound character.
