Ortofon Hi-Fi Headshell Cables
All Ortofon cartridges have a colour coding of the terminals, indicating red and green for right channel respectively hot and ground terminal. White and blue for left channel respectively hot and ground terminal. Green terminal will always be used for grounding the cartridge housings or motor-system, whenever connected inside the cartridge.
We recommend to connect lead wires to the cartridge and headshell before mounting the cartridge on the headshell. Please remember correct orientation of the leads. Ortofon SH-4 headshell and Ortofon cartridges' terminal PINs diameter is 1.2 mm, whilst Ortofon headshells' PINs diameter is normally only 1.0 mm.
Using LW 8N with the SH-4 headshell requies the LW 8N shell side clamp to be widened a little bit to fit on the SH-4 PINs. If shifted around, it may cause over-tightening of the assembly. Being aware about this detail, you will avoid the risk of having the cartridge's terminal PINs fall out.
Ortofon LW-800S headshell leadwires
LW-800S is the most sophisticated lead wires composed of Pure Silver and Silver coated wire. The nature of Silver wire, silver coated wire transmits the very clear high tone signals, it brings the brilliant tonality. The end of wire is fastened by Rhodium plated terminal.
- 4N Pure Silver wire: 3 x φ 0.26mm
- Silver-plated Oxygen Free Copper (OFC) wire: 16 x φ0.10mm
Ortofon LW-6N headshell leadwires
LW-6N is the 6N lead wire made of Ultra High Purity Copper wire, the configuration is very sofisticated with different diameter of wire strand, the inside strand is right windings, the outside strand is left winding. The tight winding against each other makes the clear transmission of music signals. The end of wire is fastened by gold plated terminal.
Clear and crisp tonality.
- High purity Cu wire 6NCu: 7 x φ 0.18mm (Right strands)
- High purity Cu wire 6NCu: 17 x φ 0.10mm (Left strands)
Ortofon LW-7N headshell leadwires
LW-7N is the hybrid lead wire made of Ultra High Purity Copper wire of 7N and 6 N. The end of wire is fastened by Rhodium plated terminal. As there is no foreign particle other than Copper 7N (99.99999 % purity) in the wire, music signal can be transmitted without any noise.
- High purity Cu wire 7NCu: 3 x φ 0.26mm
- High purity Cu wire 6NCu: 16 x φ0.10mm
