AnalogPlanet Visits Japanese Optical Cartridge Manufacturer DS Audio

After the Tokyo International Audio Show 2017 and just before heading for the airport to go home, AnalogPlanet editor Michael Fremer visited two Japanese cartridge manufacturers. The first one was DS Audio, located in the Sagami-Ono, Kanagawa Prefecture about an hour from Tokyo.

The company, founded by Mr. Tetsuji Aoyagi, has a long, distinguished heritage beginning with the invention of the optical mouse and the joystick both co-developed with Microsoft.

Mr. Aoyagi's young son Tetsuaki (Aki) overseas the development and marketing of the company's series of optical cartridges. In this video Aki explains how that happened and a great deal more.

Hi Michael, I now this is terribly of topic but did you have by any chance listen to the new "Heroes" remaster? This thing is really bugging me and I would love to hear your opinion...
