DS AUDIO GRAND MASTER: TAS 2021 GOLDEN EAR AWARDS


"It would be hard to think of anything grander, at least when it comes to LP reproduction, than the new DS Audio Grand Master. This superlative device truly represents a revolution in analog playback, liberating LPs, as far as possible, from any residual dynamic constraints to strut their stuff. "  - Jacob Heilbrunn, TAS 



"—if you are looking for cartridges in this price range and you don’t check out the Umami, you’ll always wonder if you made the right decision."
"The Umami Red is the best-sounding cartridge to come from the Excel factory, and I've heard a number of them...the Umami Red provides deliciously enjoyable class-leading performance compared with cartridges in the same price range." Andre Jennings, The Absolute Sound | 2021 Golden Ear Awards
