The gateway to the exceptional sonic qualities of optical cartridges, DS Audio’s E1 phono stage lets you enjoy your record collection like never before. Due to our unique technology, optical cartridges require less amplification and equalization than conventional phono cartridges. The result is greater purity and immediacy with a super quiet background.
Built in our Japanese factory along with all of our products, the affordable E1 phono stage accomplishes its extraordinary performance using selected audio op-amps, well designed linear power supply, and an RCA output with switchable low frequency characteristics.
