A bit of background…

Drawing from Dynavector’s ‘dispersion theory’ that brought about the original groundbreaking KARAT series, Dynavector is indeed proud to announce the entirely new 17DX KARAT Diamond phono cartridge. As with the previous KARAT series, the frequency response of the new KARAT 17DX from 20 to 20,000 Hz is perfectly flat, providing an extremely accurate groove tracking ability. However, several new features will ensure that the new 17DX will soon achieve the same legendary status and even surpass its predecessors.

Key Improvements for the DV KARAT 17DX

The goal for the new KARAT 17DX was to significantly enhance the now legendary original KARAT series. After exhaustive listening sessions 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, and the incredible 1.7mm long cantilever with Micro-Ridge stylus. All these elements combine to create a brand-new KARAT 17DX that will delight listeners, offering clear and articulate reproduction of analog recordings without any hint of harshness in the high-frequency range.
