The flagship of the DS Audio line, the DS Master1 optical cartridge features an improved optical-mechanical design, wire-suspension, sapphire cantilever and micro-ridge stylus.

Newly designed “Advanced Optical-mechanical” system

The “advanced optical-mechanical” design enables us to position our newly designed micro-optic sensor unit closer to the stylus, resulting in a much shorter optical path length. Together with its wire-suspended cantilever, the DS Master1 provides the listener the ultimate in channel separation and sound quality.

Micro-ridge stylus mounted to a sapphire cantilever

The Micro-ridge stylus has a minimum-curvature radius and is mounted to a sapphire cantilever. This super low mass generator which eschews magnets and coils and is free of ultra-sonic ringing lets the Master1 reproduce every bit of musical information with stunning nuance and brilliant detail for flagship-level performance.

Advanced Material Science

During the development phase of the DS Master1, no detail was overlooked. In the past two years, every aspect of the design and parts were re-evaluated to ensure the highest rigidity possible in the cartridge. From its Ultra duralumin body, to its amethyst power indicator window, we have carefully selected each component to ensure that we have a built a phono cartridge of the highest rigidity and quality.

*Please note, the DS Master1 optical phono cartridge requires a DS Audio preamp/equalizer for use.
