"...the DS Audio DS Master1 optical cartridge/EQ phono is truly revolutionary breakthrough in analog LP playback."
"After many months of extended evaluation, I can say that there is no aspect of the performance of this turntable system that I've been able to fault. None. Zero, zip, nada. And I'm pretty bloody hard to impress. This is front-rank, top o' the heap performance, amigos."
"It was immediately apparent to me that this approach provided continuous ionizing action, keeping any buildup of muddiness from happening throughout the playback of an LP. In every case, I found that I was able to rely on the ION-001 to help bring out the greatest level of clarity that I've heard. And given the transparency/quickness of the DS Master1, this was vital."
