  • 7075 aluminium body
  • Magnetic flux damper
  • Alnico magnet
  • Solid boron cantilever
  • Pathfinder line contact stylus
  • PCOCC wire coil

The XX1 was the first cartridge to feature Dynavector’s magnetic flux damper and softened magnetism processes that reject the magnetic fluctuation that is detrimental to a moving coil cartridge’s performance.

The Dynavector XX2 MkII retains the benefit of the flux damper but features an Alnico 5 magnet and similar rigid construction to the Te Kaitora Rua. Alnico magnets exhibit high magnetic flux density combined with a low coercive. Therefore, magnetic resistance is lower than other magnet types such as rare earth and ferrite. This provides the XX2 MkII with an exceptionally stable output voltage. There is also the additional advantage of low magnetic and electrical resistance contributing to a discernable improvement in sound quality.

The Dynavector XX2 MkII features a 6 mm solid boron cantilever fitted with a Pathfinder line contact stylus. PCOCC (Pure Copper by Ohno Continuous Casting) process copper wire is used for the coil. The output voltage of 0.28 mV is higher than that of the XX2 and its 6 ohm impedance make it well suited to most moving coil phono stages.

For rigidity of construction, the XX2 MkII cartridge body is machined from 7075 aluminium, which is the hardest available. With a total weight of only 8.9 grams, it is suitable for a variety of popular tonearms.
