  4. Item: Dynavector KARAT 17D2 MKII Moving Coil Cartridge Location: Len Wallis Audio HQ Price: $725 Item Condition: Excellent Secondhand Condition Payment Method: Credit Cards, Cash, Paypal, Bank Transfers, ZipPay Shipping: We can shipping to anywhere in the 16 known universes Extra Info: Take your vinyl payback to the next level with this excellent DV Karat 17D2 MKII. As with all cartridges we have inspected this one under the microscope (actual images included below) and it is in excellent condition. (taken direct from the Dynavector website) Description: 17D2MKll Karat Diamond is the first cartridge built using 'dispersion' theory. Its Micro-Ridge stylus and very short (1.7mm) solid diamond cantilever give a huge reduction in 'frequency dispersion', unmatched dynamics and a high frequency extension all the way up to 100kHz. The latest patented magnet circuit design increases the output to 0.26mV with crystal clear mid-range and treble even during the largest symphonic crescendos. Features and Improvements: Dynavector Karat is notable for its gemstone cantilever. This 1.7mm long and 0.25 mm in diameter solid diamond cantilever has its 0.06 square mm stylus mounting hole precision cut by a laser beam machining precess.The Micro Ridge of 0.06 square mm nude diamond stylus is carefully mounted in the cantilever. The armature of 0.9mm square and 0.4mm thick is much smaller than normal, upon which are wounded 70 turns per channel of 11 micron fine wire. Due to the short rigid construction of the cantilever the 17D2MKll showed a flat frequency response up to 50KHz. The New 17D2MKII now features Dynavector's unique magnetic flux damping and softened magnetism (patent) along with powerful Neodymium magnet that combine to eliminate any hardness or irritating edginess that commonly occurs in many moving coil cartridges. This has also enabled to increase the output of 0.26mV. Specifications: Type Low output moving coil cartridge with flux damper and softened magnetism Output Voltage 0.26mV (at 1KHz, 5cm/sec.)

  8. The phono stars aligned themselves for me this afternoon. Firstly thanks Cheeky and the Graham Slee loner program I had a Fanfare and Reflex-C. Secondly another SNA member loaned me his Whest PS.20. Finally, the family took a field trip without me and I was home alone. The Dynavector P75 mkii has been my staple phono this year. Seemed like a good time to kick 90db+ and have a duel. No doubt I’ll make a few technical errors and hopefully the analog consigliere won’t need to whack me. I’ll quickly start with the Graham Slee Fanfare; a modestly priced dedicated fixed loading MC. I just want to say that for the price the Fanfare and its MM brethren the Gram Amp 2 SE are the best budget phono’s I’ve heard. Forget that Cambridge they sold you when you got your first Rega/Pro-ject/whatever, forget those cheap tube things that will not really improve that much by tube rolling. These two are the real deal! I’m moving on without saying much as the Fanfare was very similar in signature to the Reflex-C only it didn’t have the same grip and lost a bit of composure when things got loud and complex. Still, if I had to choose my first phono again the Fanfare or Gram Amp would be it. Ok, onto to the next dish, the Graham Slee Reflex-C; again a dedicated fixed loading MC only this on comes with a fancy PSU. Flatter and wider than the Fanfare the Reflex-C is small enough to tuck away and big enough to still show off. That perhaps describes the phono well – a bit of a show off. I listened to this one for 4 days of foot tapping and grinning. A nice wide soundstage, buckets of bass and just a general sense of exuberance in its presentation. I found myself replaying the same sides of LP’s just cause things were sounding so fun. A couple highlights on the listening front. Firstly due to the generous bass rock and metal sounded superb. Tool’s Undertow was as dark and menacing as it’s ever been and the guitars just sounded so chunky and rich. Yello’s touch was absolutely cavernous but perhaps the biggest joy came from Talking Head’s Little Creatures. I hadn’t these songs since back in the day and the Reflex-C rendered them with real power. I was very impressed and could have easily listened to this one all day. A quick note on the Slee gear – both the Fanfare and Reflex-C like being left on and I felt they improved over several days of being on. Next I switched back to my Dynavector P75 Mk II: a MM/MC switchable phono with variable loading and a special setting that I don’t care to explain. The Dynavector had noticeably less gain than the Slee phono’s that perhaps made it sound a little understated. Its bass is not as deep but it is very nicely controlled. The Dynavector is very smooth and controlled in general. Anything where vocals and strings mixed it was sublime and it did a really nice job keeping the dupstep of Zomby sounding musical. It’s does an incredible job of keeping Leonard Cohen’s Old Ideas in line with great realism. I’ve found on other phono’s, including the Slee’s, his voice can become overcooked. Generally this has been a very easy to live with phono that can play all types of music without fuss. It treats poor recording with kindness and lets good recordings shine. Lastly was the Whest PS.20; a MM/MC switchable phono with a shiny separate power supply and variable loading – only to change the loading you need to order special pins. I didn’t think I was going to get this one going as finding out how to set it up took a little work and I didn’t have a US power cable on hand. But I’m so glad I got it all together. WOW! It’s just so clean and tight – I never new I had a top end until now. It’s also got truckloads of gain. So loud. It’s way may expensive than the other units so to make a comparison hardly seems fair. The Whest is very detailed and I just kept on hearing new things. I found myself just grabbing album after album and only playing 1 track just to see what this baby would do. Trentemoller’s Last Resort and Pantha Du Prince’s Black Noise were spectacular and it really latched onto all the instruments in Led Zeppelin’s Black Dog. As a negative sometimes the Whest suffered from Audiophile forwardness. I didn’t enjoy Tool or Metallica nearly as much as on the Slee. It was just a bit much with volume. To conclude I enjoyed all the phono stages. I couldn’t pick a favorite as they all had their own strong points. I can see why so many vinyl nuts have got more than one rig. Both the Reflex-C and Whest were very exciting in their own way…the Dynavector remained the golden mean. Perhaps I’ll become a phono junky. Compared to elements in the analog chain they are relatively to change around and compare and have a significant effect on the sound of the system. I need to spend some more time with he Whest as I’ve only just discovered it today. There may even be a part 2 as I’d really love to hear a Nighthawk again and I’ve had a couple offers for a couple other phono stages… System: Amp - Audio Space 300B Speakers – Hoyt-Bedford Type 1 Subs – Omega X 2 TT – yes Cart – Denon 103r w/Midas Body Cables – Krispy Kables Cat - Tokinese

  11. Item: FS: DYNAVECTOR P75 mk3 with RUSS ANDREWS Dynapak power supply Location: COBURG 3058 Price: $650 plus postage Item Condition: EXCELLENT Reason for selling: Upgraded Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Great little phono stage for both MM & MC cartridges. If your not familiar with it there's plenty of reviews online. Comes with the Russ Andrews Dynapack (no power cord) I might have a standard power cord if any interested buyers don't have one. The Dynapak power pack is an improvement on the standard power pack. This combo was a huge upgrade from my Pro-ject phono, with far greater dynamics and tighter base notes. I'd still be using it if I hadn't upgraded to a RCM Sensor at more then double the price used from another SNA member. Pictures:
  12. Item: Dynavector P75 Mk3 phono stage Location: Central NSW Price: $550 RRP $775 Item Condition: excellent Reason for selling: upgraded Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Ultra-low noise MC/MM circuitry Extremely accurate RIAA equalisation Patented PE circuit All conventional MM, MI and high and low output MC cartridges catered for Fully user adjustable, no additional components or soldering required Unique advanced power supply The Dynavector P75 mk3 Phono Stage is a unique Phono stage with many outstanding features that ensure the P75 will out perform other phono stages costing considerably more. The P75 also includes the patent P E (phono enhancing) circuit designed by Dr Tominari to dramatically improve the performance of low output moving coil cartridges. A simple arrangement of jumper settings allows all conventional, MC, MM and MI, high and low output cartridges to be catered for. The P75 also has an advanced power supply that operates from a conventional 12V AC to DC adaptor. This adaptor has absolutely no bearing on the sound quality. The P75 power supply runs at over 1/4MHz. It takes the low grade single voltage DC supply from the ac adapter and converts it to the dual high voltages required for true professional quality audio reproduction. The operating frequency is over 12 times higher than the top of the audio band and it incorporates super low noise wideband regulators in its output stage to give ultra low noise supply rails. The internal P75 power supply is totally self contained and stores many times the maximum possible energy requirements for the phono amplifiers. This means that the quality or size of the external ac adaptor is irrelevant. Increasing the capacity of the external supply will make no difference to the quality of the sound. The mk3 version of the P75, offers a small reduction in noise and distortion. An improved, and very new, type of capacitor adds an improvement to the musical performance. The physical arrangement of the jumpers has been improved, both channels are now symmetrical. There are several more adjustments/settings available. Also the quality of the cabinet finish and packaging has been improved. Price includes the ac power adapter, high quality and fully Australian approved. The P75 is a stand-alone phono to line level amplifier. It can operate with the following cartridge types: NOTE: This table will be updated soon with mk3 updates Cartridge Type Input Sensitivity Gain Loading Low output MC Standard phono stage 0.2mV or 0.15mV 60 & 63dB 30, 100, 470 ohms Low output MC Phono Enhancer* - - Zero ohms High output MC MM, MI 2mV (and 1mV) 40, 46dB (and 53dB) 47k (47,000) ohms Dimensions ( W x D x H ) 133W x 83D x 44H mm Weight 475g *Input sensitivity and gain is determined mainly by the cartridge internal DC coil resistance. Three resistance/gain adjustments available. Pictures: (File photo)

  14. Item: dynavector 10x5 Moving coil high out cartridge. Location: Perth Price: 725 Item Condition: brand new unopened Reason for selling: unused as thought existing cart was damaged but isn't. Payment Method: normal pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD or ship and courier Extra Info: Brand new. Unused store stock Stereophile Recommended Component The latest in Dynavector's entry-level series, the high output 10x5 moving -coil proved "ridiculously good for the money." Hifi World Review The most musical cartridge at or near its price, the baby Dynavector is a classic budget audiophile product. - For more than 30 years Dynavector's Moving Coil cartridges have continuously enjoyed worldwide acclaim due to a combination of innovative design, advanced production techniques and an unwavering commitment to the musical source. Over the same period many new formats such as Compact Disc, MP3, SACD and DVDA have come to dominate music reproduction. However many audiophiles consider that these digital mediums leave much to be desired when compared to analogue recordings. Consumers and the recording companies remain confused as to which digital medium will become the standard and in the meantime the vast heritage of recorded music, spanning almost a century, is placed in jeopardy. Fortunately Dynavector have never capitulated to the giant digital industry and have continued to refine their unique range of MC cartridges, providing music lovers with the highest standard of music reproduction that matches or surpasses any digital source. At any price point, the audiophile can be guaranteed that a Dynavector MC cartridge will both move and excite the listener to new heights of listening pleasure. A pleasure for many that comes only from a genuine analogue source. Dynavector 10X5 Details The Dynavector 10X series High Output Moving Coil cartridge debuted in 1978 winning the prestigious Design and Engineering Award at the Chicago CES in both 1978 and 1981. The 10X series cartridges are also widely accepted at the benchmark in High Output moving coil cartridge at this price point and beyond. With the introduction of the new 10X5 High Output moving coil there is no doubt Dynavector will retain this enviable position and again set the standard for high output moving coil cartridges. Improvements to the Latest 10X5 The 10X5 now features Dynavector's unique magnetic flux damping and softened magnetism (patent) along with powerful Neodymium magnet that combine to eliminate any hardness or irritating edginess that commonly occurs in many moving coil cartridges. Dynavector are also renowned for the capability of winding the finest coil assemblies. This has enabled them to minutely increase the coil wire diameter of the 10X5 to achieve a reduction of impedance to 150 ohms whilst retaining a healthy 2.5mV output. This also ensures both a rugged and reliable circuitry. The 10X5 also features a newly designed Aluminium head block with M2.5 thread to provide a rigid platform for the cartridge motor and secure fixing to the tonearm. User Manual Stereophile Review "The Dynavector 10x5 more than lives up to my memory of its predecessor. This colorful, well-balanced, chunky-sounding cartridge played music extremely well, with a bonus of very fine stereo imaging. In other words, it's a great all-arounder...The Dynavector 10x5 should give you most of what you need at a bargain price. Wildly, highly recommended." - Art Dudley, Stereophile Oct. 2003 tnt-audio "Bar none, I found the Dynavector to be the best overall cartridge that I have had the opportunity to hear to date, and a tremendous value to boot. I give the Dynavector DV-10x4 MKII my heartiest recommendation. In fact, I have been loath to invite my friend by for a listen. He may want his albums back!..." Techradar, Dynavector DV-10X5 review Precise sound for a bargain price The 10X5 is the least expensive cartridge in Japanese brand Dynavector's extensive range and its origins can be traced back to a time when vinyl ruled supreme (1978, to be specific). It has gone through five revisions since then, so is a more up-to-date design with an elliptical stylus and a more conventional downforce requirement for an MC of two grammes. 6th Street Bridge Review Even without any break-in, the Dynavector 10X5 shows itself to be a great performer. Music has color, vibrancy, dynamics and is now oh so much more fun to listen to. Listening to Supertramp's "Crime of the Century" revealed snarling guitars, deep rich bass and a wonderfully extended but clean treble. Instruments now had air around them and vocals had more definition. We listened to a few more discs - original pressings of Steely Dan, John Lee Hooker and Dire Straits - and reveled in the pure enjoyment of music. The 10X5 punches above it's price point with a quick detailed sound that doesn't get annoying. It is strange how the music sounds so fast but still has a warm natural rhythm and flow. From memory the overall sound reminds me of the original $99 Sumiko Blue Point of yore, but the 10X5 definitely has stronger bass and a more full bodied presence. A wallet-friendly option It has a strong 2.5mV output meaning you don't need a hyper-sensitive MC phono stage, making it more economical for those starting out on the vinyl path to sonic enlightenment. A forthcoming revision is said to include threaded inserts, which would greatly aid mounting, but as it stands it's difficult to set up. You have to use the supplied aluminium slot-head bolts and round nuts and there's no stylus guard for assurance. Vibrant Sounds Fortunately, it's worth the trouble (it wouldn't still be around if not) and is capable of producing a solid and precise soundstage with real weight and power. Tonally, it's very convincing too, managing to combine good detail resolution with a relaxed balance that's sensitive to timing without leaning on the leading edges. The lazy groove of Tom Waits' Swordfishtrombone sounds so right that it's hard to find the limitations unless you have something better on hand (the Ortofon Rondo Red reveals greater subtlety in the bass and a little more refinement). But the Dynavector makes up for this with vibrant dynamics and a great sense of timing that hooks you into the music. Pictures:just opened box for first time . Bought and changed mind as existing cart still works just covering as much of cost as possible.
