The new MKII version of the Dynavector DV 507 tonearm has made its long-awaited debut, building on the strengths of the original DV 507 which has enjoyed the highest reputation among audiophiles world-wide since its appearance in 1984.

As it is a bi-axis inertia controlled tonearm the DV 507, no matter the type of cartridge can trace the music signal grooves cut in the recording with extreme accuracy. The DV 507 also provides superb trackability on warped recordings. Resolution and musical detailing are quite remarkable.

special features

 

 High precision all stainless steel bearings
The use of precision stainless steel bearings give superb dynamic sensitivity and a stabilised tracking performance without any deterioration through ageing.High precision all stainless steel bearings
Non-contact electro magnetic damper
The use of new type damper with a powerful Neodymium magnet gives better damping and ensures that any adverse effects on tracking performance are minimised.non-contact electro-magnet damper
 Large arm lift
A larger arm lift gives a stable lift action which maintains its performance over long periods enabling cartridges to be raised and lowered without stress.Large arm lift
 Detachable headshell plug in connector
The use of a new type of plug-in connector ensures that good contact is maintained with the Rhodium coated headshell contact pin during long-term use.Detachable headshell plug in connector
 New style headshell and lead wires
The new style headshell is suitable for use with a wide variety of cartridges. It is machined from aluminium alloy and has an EIA standard connector. This allows the cartridge to be rigidly mounted and the azimuth adjustment. pure 6N wire is used in lead wires for the headshell and internal wires of the arm.New style headshell
 High-quality arm cable
A machined aluminium connector is used. The 5 PIN connector conforms to the DIN standard. Double balanced type shield wire and 4NOFC/6N hybrid construction arm cable.High-quality arm cable
