The 17D3! A silky smooth sounding cartridge with fabulous dynamic range, amazingly extended highs and tonal accuracy that will give you chills!

The karat has now clearly established itself as a high end reference cartridge for many reviews and audiophiles alike.. Now available in new model with 10% higher output

Dynavector cartridges are known for their resolution and tonality and the 17D3 is no exception. Unflappable, the 17D3 maintains it's composure on even the most complex and demanding of recordings. The secret is in the design; the 17D3's body damps resonance, the ultra-short cantilever reduces resonance, even the internal magnetic structure of the 17D3 has been engineered with the goal of eliminating resonance!

If you want to make a great cartridge, simply reducing resonance won't get you there. To make a great cartridge, you must use premium materials as well, such as a solid diamond cantilever. Yes, you read that right, the 17D3 has a diamond cantilever. A diamond cantilever doesn't have the high-frequency resonance problems that plague most metal cantilevers, lending itself to smoother treble reproduction, with silky-sweet high frequencies without any sharpness or metallic ringing. Diamond's tensile strength also means that the cantilever can be made very short, lending an amazing sense of immediacy to virtually any type of music. Although the 17D3's chassis is virtually non-resonant, the 17D3 is a very light-weight cartridge, coming in at just under 5.5Gms and although it's a low-output cartridge, the 17D3 will work with virtually any phono pre-amp with at least 60dB of gain!
