    DS Audio DS-W1 Night Rider Optical Phono Cartridge





    Unlike Moving Magnet/Moving Coil cartridges, which work on the principle of electromagnetic induction, The DS Audio DS-W1 Optical cartridge detects stylus vibration by measuring the minute changes in the intensity
    of beam of light.


    This innovative design eliminates the electromagnetic frictional force that is simply a 'fact of life' in all MM/MC cartridges.


    Sound at the Speed of Light


    The DS-W1 "Nightrider" optical phono cartridge is a unique product capable of exceptional purity and dynamics. DS Audio has realized the full potential of this design with modern technology, creating a welcome addition for all serious vinyl playback enthusiasts.


    *Please note, the DS-W1 "Nightrider" optical phono cartridge requires a DS Audio preamp/equalizer for use.

    DS Audio DS 002 Phono Stage



    The DS 002 phono stage includes a robust, updated power supply featuring a special shielding structure to keep out RF and self-noise while delivering outstanding signal-to-noise performance.


    "[The DS 002] simply has to be heard to be believed." -Jonathan Valin The Absolute Sound


    Rated among the top 5 most significant analog introductions at CES 2017 by Julie Mullins of The Absolute Sound


    When designing the DS 002, we carefully evaluated each component of the phono stage. The updated power supply is a key part in the new design. To ensure a high-quality power source for the phono stage, ten 33000F capacitors are used, providing effortless power for the highest level of sound quality.


    For outstanding signal-to-noise performance, we have incorporated a special shielding structure in the phono stage design of the DS 002. This shield both isolates internal noise from the power supply while also blocking external RF and other environmental noise. The shield is 1.5mm thick and covers the entire transformer, which ensures the best signal-to-noise performance of the DS 002 phono stage.


    *Please note, the DS 002 phono stage is only compatible with DS Audio optical phono cartridges

    DS Audio DS 002 Optical Phono Cartridge



    The new DS Audio DS 002 optical phono cartridge combines the latest optical cartridge technology with a more budget-friendly price point. Featuring an aluminum cantilever and classic Shibata stylus, the DS 002's optical screen is positioned closer to the stylus-a breakthrough in phono cartridge design allowing for more accurate reading of the information within the record groove.


    "[The DS 002] simply has to be heard to be believed." -Jonathan Valin The Absolute Sound


    Rated among the top 5 most significant analog introductions at CES 2017 by Julie Mullins of The Absolute Sound


    Like the more expensive DS Audio cartridges, the DS 002 cartridge body is machined from aluminum and echoes their distinctive design for best optical performance. The DS 002 features an aluminum cantilever and classic Shibata stylus to accurately reproduce the music recorded on the vinyl record album. The DS 002's optical screen is placed near the stylus tip, together with a newly developed wire-suspension system to hold the cantilever. The new position of the optical screen is a breakthrough in phono cartridge design, providing a much more accurate reading of the groove information and contributing to clearer sound reproduction.


    Notably, the cantilever is more precisely positioned within the newly developed wire-suspension system in the DS 002. This new structure provides a highly accurate and precise pivot point for the cantilever, increasing channel separation to reproduce the most accurate stereo image.

    DS Audio DS Master1 Phono Stage



    The flagship of the DS Audio line, the DS Master1's phono stage is a fully discrete dual-mono design with single-ended RCA and balanced XLR outputs, as well as three low frequency cutoff points.


    Fully discrete dual-mono circuitry with three dedicated power supplies


    The DS Master1's matching phono stage features expertly designed, fully independent dual-mono analog circuits. To achieve flagship-level performance, each channel has its own dedicated power supply to deliver more than ample power with the third power supply dedicated to the cartridge LED drive system to the DS Master1 phono cartridge.


    Your choice of outputs and low frequency response


    The DS Master1 phono stage features three sets of RCA or XLR outputs. As well as three separate low frequency cut-off points. Output 1 is "DS Standard" single cut-off with 6db/oct at 30Hz. Output 2 is "RIAA Standard" double cut-off with 6db/octave 50.5Hz and 6db/octave at 30Hz. Output 3 is "RIAA Sub-sonic" triple cut-off with 6db/octave 50.5Hz, 6db/octave at 30Hz, and 12db/octave at 25Hz. Each low frequency contour is accessed by its own dedicated single-ended RCA or balanced XLR output for a total of six sets of dual-mono outputs.


    Massive 24 kilogram / 53 pound unit weight


    Its robust weight is the result of the twelve 120K f electrolytic capacitors and three transformers used in the DS Master1 phono stage. To achieve the lowest possible impedance, a pure copper bus-bar provide connection between the bank of capacitors.


    *Please note, the DS Master1 phono stage is only compatible with DS Audio optical phono cartridges

    DS Audio DS Master1 Optical Phono Cartridge





    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.

    The starter turntable of choice for audiophiles the world over!


    The new Essential III builds on the successes of the Essential II. The Essential II is a fabulous sounding turntable. It's the least expensive turntable on the market that includes both a high precision main bearing and a solid, adjustable tonearm that's based on the award winning Debut design. It's become the starter turntable of choice for audiophiles the world over.


    The new Essential III adds some nice upgrades compared to the Essential II. Cosmetically, the Essential III takes a cue from the award winning Debut Carbon DC, with a lustrous high-gloss finish that's available in Black, Red, or White. The platter also gets an upgrade: it's constructed of a dense MDF for minimal resonance and finished in a high-gloss piano black. The visual effect is striking, especially on the Red and White tables where the high-gloss platter contrasts nicely with the plinth. It looks really spectacular if you display it with some fun colored vinyl to accentuate the colors! The adjustable 8.6" one-piece aluminum tonearm is significantly more sophisticated than anything close to its price range, and utilizes sapphire bearings for minimal friction and many years of reliable performance. The Essential III also includes a factory mounted/aligned Ortofon OM10 cartridge. You won't find a better performing, better matched cartridge/tonearm combination in this price range.


    The main platter bearing is precision machined high grade stainless steel and the drive pulley is crafted from aluminum. A new DC motor speed controller board regulates the platter speed and the Essential III now includes Connect it E interconnect hardwired directly to the output.


    *Not compatible with Speed Box S or Speed Box DS.
