There is nothing more musically satisfying than the experience of removing a record from it's jacket, lowering it onto a turntable, anticipating how it will sound and make one feel. There is just something more personal about that experience. As if the boundary between the artist has disappeared and the emotional connection of the music is all one experiences.

It has been about 70 years since the advent of the moving coil and moving magnet cartridges, which use tiny coils and magnets attatched to cantileavers to generate electrical signals from record grooves. However DS Audio has developed a cartridge system that is a total paradigm shift. No coils or magnets. The cartridge itself is an active component. It attaches to its power supply/phono section to produce some of the most incredible sound one has ever experienced from an LP. Installed and calibrated in the SME turntable for demonstration.
The Mobile Fidelity turntables are designed in collaboration with one of the world's formost turntable and tonearm designers, Allen Perkins. Custom designed and manufactured in the US these turntables offer significant value. On demonstration with their record clamp and phono stage.
