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 Ortjofon’s special proprietary compound, TPE, with excellent dampening properties. is integrated into the slit. LH-10000 incorporates damping technology similar to the Ortofon TA-110/TA-210 tonearms and Orthofon Xpression cartridge, promoting a further reduction in unwanted resonances.
