The LH-8000 is a high quality handmade wood-based headshell with a polished brass finger lift. The highly attractive LH-8000 is perfect for a variety of cartridges, e.g. MC JubileeMC WindfeldMC Windfeld TiMC AnnaMC Anna Diamond2M Bronze and 2M Black.

Knowing the fundamental headshell dimensions will in a lot of cases make it easier to mount and align cartridge and tonearm correctly. Please scroll to the bottom of the page to see the headshells mounting dimensions chart.

The LH-8000 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 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 cartridges' terminal PINs diameter is 1.2 mm, whilst Ortofon headshells' PINs diameter is only 1.0 mm.
