DS Audio Optical Cartridge first impressions

Thanks to Tetsuaki Aoyagi of DS Audio for the review sample of their Optical Cartridge. I have installed this optical cartridge on a number of turntables set up. So far, I was entertained with bountiful detailing throughout the tonal spectrum of every musical instruments in an open soundstage of impressive width, height and depth. Even on this humble Lenco idle wheel drive turntable, the optical cartridge is able to present and add its quality of refinement and musicality to the presentation as a whole. 
At US $8,500-00, comes complete with both cartridge and its dedicated phono equalizer, it is not cheap but a bargain in the world of high end phono cartridges and phono stages.
More in depth review is in the works…enjoy
