The basic principle of the optical cartridge It's not a moving coil cartridge.

DS-El has a wire suspension mechanism which is the same design as DS Master 1 and DS-W2 and DS002 By implementing it, you realize high channel separation and stable music playback. Moreover, by arranging the position of the slit at the position close to the needle point, it is possible to retrieve information with higher freshness.

Like the more expensive DS Audio cartridges, the DS-E1 cartridge body is machined from aluminum and echoes their distinctive design for best optical performance. The DS 002 features an aluminum cantilever and Elliptical needle to accurately reproduce the music recorded on the vinyl record album.

The DS-El equalizer employs an operational amplifier at the heart of its amplification circuit, greatly reducing the number of components required. This also allows the DS-E1 to posses an extremely compact form factor, around 1/3 the size of the DS-002 equalizer, whilst still offering the world leading performance you have come to expect from DS Audio.
