“The game changer”

I think it could be the sixth biggest game-changer in cartridges in three decades. The other five? its older siblings.

DS-E1 Hi Fi News review by Ken Kessler

“The game changer”
“I think it could be the sixth biggest game-changer in cartridges in three decades. The other five? its older siblings.”

 


DS-E1 review by Tone audio

“It would be easy to call the DS Audio E1 optical cartridge and equalizer a benchmark at the $3k price point. I think that it’s easily a benchmark at twice, maybe even three times that price.”


DS-E1 review by Taiwan magazine(Chinese language)

“DS Audio’s latest optical cartridge/phono-stage combo, the DS-E1, while priced at the low end in the lineup, achieves a performance level well beyond expectation. It retains most of the key sonic signatures of the top-end model with just slightly lower resolution and dynamic punch. In terms of background noise level, transient speed, and tonal accuracy, the DS-E1 is obviously ahead of conventional transducers at the similar or much higher price bracket. The clean, accurate and harmonic-rich reproduction of well-recorded piano music will quickly dispel any doubt the DS-E1 being one of the best buys in the analog-gear market today. Strongly recommended.”
