DS-E1 set

DS-E1 Happy days with music I used to listen to it with DENON's station blur, so I used many types of MC, including the genuine DL-103. Since the DN-308F is equipped with an equalizer amplifier, there was no need to prepare an equalizer amplifier or preamplifier. MC listening with the equalizer... More

DS-W2 set

I bought the DS-W2 two years ago. I've used many MC cartridges so far, but the W2 sounds quite different from those MC cartridges. It is a natural and realistic sound without coloring. The resolution is high, and it reproduces precisely and realistically from low to high frequencies, but the W2 does... More

Review

DS-W2 gets the highest score ever since its launch(Germany magazine


Cartridge evaluation list page of AUDIO magazine. DS-W2 scored 125 points and updated the cartridge category world’s highest score.
This is the highest ever score since the launch of the AUDIO magazine.

”It does not happen often that it makes me speechless.  But what the DS Audio DS-W2 gets out of a record really mocks any description.  
In terms of dynamics and transparency, I have never heard a better pickup in my life. ”

Hi-Fi News review by Ken Kessler(English) 

“On the difficult, inner-groove ‘Broken Arrow’ the cartridge tracked it perfectly,The DS-W2 has no problem handling all of the details in even the most cluttered of tracks. 
This is a reference-grade cartridge, and blessed relief for those hankering after a Master 1, at double the price.”

 


DS-W2 review in US(English) 

“The DS Audio W-2 is all about fidelity and great harmonics played with rich and beautiful tonal color. It offers a little more natural and realistic warmth than the other two cartridges without giving up speed or detail to the DS-002 and only a little to the Master1”

 


Poland Hi Fidelity magazine(English&Poland)

“The sound it offers is extremely comfortable. It is rich from the top the the very bottom, it beautifully shows the foreground, which is large, rich and strong. There is high dynamics here and great resolution.”
“one can write down the fact that the DS Audio system is completely quiet”


DS-W2 review in Hong Kong(Chinese)

“I have never reviewed a product that has invoked as dramatic an experience as the DS Audio DS-W2.”
“its strong and easily identifiable sonic traits which are unlike anything I have ever owned before. It fills void in my analog arsenal and nothing else sounds similar to it. It’s smooth and non-grainy character allows me to listen to music for hours without fatigue. It’s upfrontness and immediacy allows me to enjoy my small but growing collection of Jazz music with a realism which my system didn’t have before. It is an innovative and unique product that deserves my recommendation. Highly recommended!”
