DS Audio introduces HS-001 headshell

With a reputation for its pioneering optical phono cartridges, DS Audio has also been applying its innovative approach to a number of audio accessories – and the HS-001 headshell is its latest introduction. Precision machined from a solid billet of duralumin and weighing 10.5g, its ultra-light yet rigid aluminium alloy claims excellent resonance control.

Signal leads are via Japanese-made Litz wire, which claims to preserve signal integrity for the optimal in sound. The point of contact with the tonearm features both an upper and a lower vertical pin structure, which serves to equalise the pressure on the electrical contacts and ensure an even force across the connection to the tonearm. Available now, the HS-001 is priced at £400 and is distributed in the UK by Sound Fowndations.. You can find out more about it here.
