DS Audio of Japan, who are well known for their optical cartridges, have set up DS Exports, who will export high end Japanese audio products to the rest of the world.

Thirty years after its first release, SAEC, one of the brands that DS Exports are representing, have announced the re-release of their double knife edge tone arm, the WE – 4700.

This double knife edge technology relies on an advanced cutting machine but must be finished by a craftsperson with “the skill of a watchmaker or sword polisher”. The tonearm will retail at USD $8500 – 9500.

DS Exports will also be represented at High End Munich 2018 in Rooms F126 – F128, by their German distributor High Fidelity Studio.
