The LH-4000 is a basic high quality headshell designed specifically for HiFi applications. Providing a clean, minimalist aesthetic, the LH-4000 is great for a wide variety of cartridges, specially recommended for the MC Quintet series.
The LH-4000 comes with leadwires for easy and convenient connection. All Ortofon cartridges have a colour coding of the terminals, indicating red and green for right channel hot and ground terminals and white and blue for left channel hot and ground terminals respectively. Green terminal will always be used for grounding the cartridge housings or motor-system, whenever connected to the cartridge.
We recommend that you connect the lead wires to the cartridge and headshell before mounting the cartridge on the headshell as this is much easier than fitting once in place.
Please remember correct the orientation of the leads. Ortofon cartridges' terminal PINs diameter is 1.2 mm, whilst Ortofon headshells' PINs diameter is only 1.0 mm. These figures are stamped on to the cable connectors.
