Description

Reduce the number of contacts with the connector, make the contact with the tone arm more solid, and increase the strength of the head shell body.

Conventional head shells have the connecting pin attached only to the upper side, causing uneven contact pressure between the arm and the head shell. However, the HS-001 Solid Head Shell adopts both an upper and lower pin structure, equalizing the pressure on the contacts and applying force evenly across the connection to the tonearm. Moreover, by using the spherical head shell washer developed by DS Audio independently at the contact point with the tonearm, stable contact is achieved over the entire circumference of the contact point, providing improved stability and resonance control.

DS Audio precision machines each HS-001 out of a solid billet of duralumin for the ultimate in rigidity and resonance control.

After extensive listening tests within the company, DS Audio chose a Japanese made Litz wire. Further advances were realized by hand soldering this delicate lead wire to preserve signal integrity for the optimal in sound performance.
