"The best phono cable for the optical cartridges"

PH-001 Phono cable

Maximum performance phono cable for optical cartridges


The highest quality construction throughout

When using an MM or MC cartridge, the cold side of the phono cable serves only as a ground. In the case of optical cartridges, however, the cold side supplies power from the equalizer to the cartridge. Therefore, in such an application, the cold side of the cable is just as important as the hot side. The PH-001 features identical materials and construction on both the hot and cold sides, ensuring that the power supply is kept stable.

Complete Shielding

Optical cartridges have a relatively high impedance, partly due to the photo sensors used in their design. Because of this high impedance, external noise may be picked up if an unshielded phono cable is used. The DS Audio PH-001 phono cable is shielded with a silver-plated copper braid, eliminating potential interference.

RCA terminals machined from pure copper

The PH-001 features RCA phono connectors machined from pure copper; the pure copper base conductor is then gold-plated. Such high-quality connectors allow even more musical detail and texture to shine through, along with a heightened sense of openness.

Silver-plated copper conductors

The PH-001 cable features silver-plated pure copper conductors, each made up of 37 strands of 0.26mm (about 0.01 in) diameter wire. This gives the conductor an exceptionally large cross-section area of 1.964m㎡.
