The 17DX was designed and built using dispersion theory. It's Micro-Ridge stylus and 1.7 mm solid diamond cantilever result in huge reductions in 'frequency dispersion'.

Dynavector developed a unique coil winding machine to wind the ultra fine wire used. The miniature size of the coil and cantilever assembly leads to a precise and dynamic musical performance. The new DX version features improvements such as the solid machined brass body, Samarium Cobalt magnets and lower coil resistance allowing for articulate yet musical, analogue playback.
