  • Vertical pin structure achieves uniform pressure ofelectrical contacts. Contact surface stabilized by spherical washer
  • HS-001 Solid head shell is incredibly rigid as each isindividually machined from a solid piece of ultra duralumin.
  • By soldering the lead wire and the head shell connectormanually, perfect electrical contact in ensured and the freshness of the soundis maximized.

Conventional head shells have the connecting pin attachedonly to the upper side, causing uneven contact pressure between the arm and thehead shell. However, the HS-001 Solid Head Shell adopts both an upper and lowerpin structure, equalizing the pressure on the contacts and applying forceevenly across the connection to the tonearm.

Moreover, by using the spherical head shell washer developedby DS Audio independently at the contact point with the tonearm, stable contactis achieved over the entire circumference of the contact point, providingimproved stability and resonance control.

Machined Ultra Duraluminum

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

Hand soldered Litz signal leads

After extensive listening tests within the company, DS Audiochose a Japanese made Litz wire. Further advances were realized by handsoldering this delicate lead wire to preserve signal integrity for the optimalin sound performance. (Lead wires and connector parts are available unsolderedas well, by dealer request.)
