In 1999, Dynavector revolutionised the high-end MC cartridge market with the flagship DRT XV-1! It is currently available as the 'S' version. However, it builds on the flagship design developed for its predecessors. First of all, the exclusive magnetic system made of eight small Alnico magnets. The coils are made of a very thin and high purity coper conductor. Ebony wood holds the assembly together, delivering great acoustic results and a level of rigidity that is close to aluminium, yet lighter. The boron cantilever has a high purity steel armature creating a more stable magnetic field. The overall armature is made of stainless steel and the front features a V-shaped front yoke. The open design keeps the weight reasonable, wards off resonance, giving it a cutting-edge appearance and displaying its components for music lovers to enjoy! From the opening bars, this Dynavector left us speechless! The timbre is one of the best we've heard so far! The bass is very deep with amazing transparency and definition. The sound stage is level with the rest, wide and deep, with amazing results in terms of atmosphere! The harmonic richness and dynamics are a benchmark! Dynavector aimed to develop a cartridge that could rival with the best digital products! They have risen to the challenge! I have often had the opportunity to try the best CD players and I own decent systems myself… but never have I listened to as much music! The DRT XV-1S is simply the ultimate expression of analogue sound! If it's perfection you're looking for, then this is not far off the mark…
