The following is a press release from EMM Labs.

EMM Labs is officially releasing Ed’s long awaited DS-EQ1 Optical Equalizer! Production is running with the first units shipped and in use already at DS Audio in Japan to rave reviews!

DS-EQ1 Optical Equalizer

More than a year in collaboration with Tetsuaki Aoyagi, head of DS Audio, Ed’s dive back into the world of vinyl playback has resulted in the first EMM Labs Optical Equalizer, the DS-EQ1, exclusively for interfacing with DS Audio optical cartridges.

Designed with an obsessive desire to lower noise and distortion, and to extract every bit of detail and information from any DS Audio optical cartridge. The DS-EQ1’s circuits are all designed in-house, and  optimized for short and direct audio paths. EMM custom made ceramic PCB for the equalization and amplification stages allow for the superior extraction of low level details in the audio.

From its proprietary equalization, class A amplification, and power supply systems, to its touch panel buttons and sophisticated aluminium chassis, the DS-EQ1 is the ultimate partner to any DS Audio optical cartridge.
