- Excellent but getting expensive Review by Ageing Ears
Value Quality Price
I've been using the 10x5 for over ten years in three separate budget arms and it is an excellent all rounder. It is tolerant, well balanced, and tracks well. At its original price (£250) it was a no brainer. I'm not sure how it stands up to the competition at £499, but with a varied and large record collection (both musically and condition wise) I would still regard it as a safe bet. So many cartridges have turned out to be one trick ponies. The 10x5 passes all the tests and is widely compatible. (Posted on 01/11/2016)
- Superb Review by philip
Price Value Quality
Get your dancing shoes on for this one.A real fun cartridge and like the Denon DL103 amazing value for money.Seems to play all forms off music with no favourites and punches well above its price.I have several cartridges albeit much older than this which cost much more than this and yet I prefer the Dynavector.The cracking Origin Live frontend I have thanks to advice from Mark seems to allow the Dynavector to shine but it still sounds good mounted on an old Rega Planar 2 that I have.
It is also very kind to old vinyl in that it seems to render surface noise to a level where it is easy to ignore.
Yet another good recommendation from Mark. (Posted on 03/08/2013)
