The original Te Kaitora cartridge was the result of collaboration between Dynavector Japan and Dynavector New Zealand. It allowed analogue enthusiasts to embark on a voyage of discovery to the outer limits of vinyl reproduction. The improved Te Kaitora Rua continues the journey by incorporating many of the newest features of its Dynavector stable-mates, the XV-1s and XX-2. The wire for the coil has been changed to the PCOCC copper wire from the silver wire. It sounds much smoother and has a much better musical performance. A titanium headpiece for maximum ridgity along with a miniature stainless steel bolt coupling the front and rear yokes to the magnetic circuit assembly. A 6mm long boron cantilever with the Pathfinder (PF) line contact stylus as used with both Dynavector XV-1s and XX-2. The ingenious square shaped armature and matching square shaped aperture in the front yoke provides much improved linearity in the magnetic flux distribution.
