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. What’s more, the DW-W1 boasts an all analog signal path delivering to the listener a transparent, warm, and engaging playback experience.  Included with the DS-W1 is its own dedicated Equalizer/Power Supply, replacing the need for a phono stage, allowing you to connect directly to a line-level input on a preamplifier.
