DS AUDIO DS-W3 OPTICAL CARTRIDGE BORON CANTILEVER
The DS-W3 combines a boron cantilever with a line contact stylus. The cartridge’s body is constructed from aluminium with a structure crafted for maximum rigidity, while the internal wiring is 1.6 times thicker than that of the earlier second generation model, thus reducing impedance.
DS AUDIO EQUALIZER
Like all DS Audio optical cartridges, the DS-W3 requires its own equalizer/phono stage, which this new design also brings up to ‘third generation’ level. All internal components are optimized for third-generation cartridge technology, the thickness of the circuit board has increased from 1.6mm to 2.0mm, and the thickness of the copper tracks have been doubled from 35µm to 70µm. The equalizer offers both unbalanced and balanced outputs with a choice of four different low-frequency roll-off points ensuring that the DS-W3 will partner with any high-end HiFi system.
