Dynavector KARAT 17DX
Dynavector KARAT 17DX low output MC cartridge.
What we Say:
We are massive fans of the Dynavector DV17 series so when we learned that a new version the KARAT 17DX was coming out it was music to our ears. It features a very unusual diamond cantilever design which is responsible for its fast dynamic sound. Lots of design changes have enhanced its performance still further.Enquire about the Dynavector KARAT 17DX >

DV KARAT 17DX MC Cartridge
Low Output with Diamond Cantilever
Drawing on Dynavector’s ‘dispersion theory’that produced the original world first KARAT series Dynavector are indeed proud to announce the entirely new 17DX KARAT Diamond phono cartridge. As in the past KARAT series, the frequency response of the new KARAT 17DX at 20 to 20,000 Hz is ruler flat providing an extremely accurate groove tracking ability. However, several new features will ensure that the new 17DX will shortly gain the same legendary status and soon surpass its predecessors.
Features and Improvements
The rationale for the new KARAT 17DX was to significantly improve upon the now legendary original KARAT series. After exhaustive listening and technical research, the decision was made to incorporate a body machined from solid brass, Samarium-cobalt magnets for lower magnetic resistance, unmatched coil winding techniques, the incredible 1.7mm long cantilever with Micro Ridge stylus all combining in a brand-new KARAT 17DX that will delight the listener, providing clear and articulate reproduction of analog recordings without a hint of harshness in the high frequency range.
1.7mm length Diamond cantilever is much smaller than conventional cantilever
