DYNAVECTOR TE KAITORA RUA MC PHONO CARTRIDGE
The original Te Kaitora cartridge was the result of collaboration between Dynavector Japan and Dynavector New Zealand. The Te Kaitora 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 Te Kaitora Rua has even managed to improve on the original's silk-like treble and openness.
Note: Te Kaitora means "The Discoverer" in the language of the NZ Maori people, Rua, is "the second version".
