DaVa Soul Field Coil Cartridge: A beautiful upgrade for audiophiles

Darius Valiunas, a renowned expert in the realm of vinyl playback systems, recently unveiled his latest innovation in the field: the DaVa Soul Field cartridge, a significant advancement for vinyl enthusiasts. Valiunas shared insights into the creative journey that led to this breakthrough, highlighting his long-held vision of designing a cartridge that features a modern diamond-shaped stylus. Unlike the earlier DaVa models, which relied on a coil mechanism that required low compliance and were limited to conical needles due to their dramatic alteration of the magnetic field area, the new design introduces a transformative approach.

“The genesis of the DaVa Soul Field cartridge came to me during a reflective walk in the park, where it dawned on me that the solution lay in integrating a transducer module directly at the front of the cantilever,” Valiunas explained. This innovative design choice has culminated in the creation of the DaVa Soul Field, a coil cartridge that represents a significant leap forward in vinyl playback technology.

The DaVa Soul Field stands out with its weight of 14 grams and features a micro-ridged stylus, with a Vertical Tracking Force (VTF) range of 2 to 2.5 grams. This cartridge is engineered to enhance the listening experience by reproducing additional harmonics in the music, delivering a sound that is both clear and transparent. Furthermore, it offers the added benefit of extending the lifespan of vinyl records through its gentle handling, ensuring that bass frequencies are rendered with more depth and detail than ever before.

Valiunas expressed his excitement about the potential impact of the DaVa Soul Field on the audiophile community: “This development should come as a delightful surprise to both fans and aficionados of DaVa.” His latest creation promises to redefine expectations and set a new benchmark for vinyl playback quality, offering listeners an unprecedented auditory experience.
