DS-1 Digital Stylus Gauge

The Ortofon DS-1 digital stylus force gauge is a small, ultra-precision, non-magnetic instrument for setting tracking force to a very high degree of precision. Made in Japan, the slim form factor makes it easy to use, factory calibration and high build quality ensure consistent and repeatable results.

The DS-1 eliminates setup frustration with real-world accuracy of ±0.1g, an easy to use interface and highly consistent results. Ortofon knows there are other stylus force gauges offering what at first might appear to be higher resolution than the DS-1. However, a quick glance at any cartridge's spec sheet will show tracking force specified only to 1/10th of a gram. Put plainly, below 1/10 of a gram, consistency suffers. Humidity, temperature, lubrication of bearings, even the springs in the gauge itself all work against true consistency. However, at 1/10 of a gram, with a well-made gauge, accuracy is easily achievable and sufficient for the vast majority of high-end setups.
