The LH-10000 is an exceptionally high quality headshell made using a high performance Aluminum alloy with Zinc as the primary alloying element. The Aluminum alloy used for LH-10000 is strong, with strength comparable to steel. It has good fatigue strength and machinability, but offers more resistance to corrosion than many other Aluminum alloys.
LH-10000 features a precision machined slit on the top plate.
A piece of Ortofon's special proprietary TPE (Thermo-Plastic Elastomer) compound with excellent damping properties is integrated into the slit.
LH-10000 incorporates damping technology similar to the Ortofon TA-110 / TA-210 tonearms and Ortofon Xpression cartridge, promoting a further reduction in unwanted resonances.
Knowing the fundamental headshell dimensions will in a lot of cases make it easier to mount and align cartridge and tonearm correctly.
