Made from Audio-Technica’s “technichard” space technology super hard material rated microdiamond pyramid hardness exceeds 400. Surface hardness achieve its ultra strong strength and light weight through “technichard” aluminum material, developed by NASA. Ideal head shell for its ultra light weight and durability
The Audio Technica AT-LH18 is a great audiophile headshell. It is best paired with heavier cartridges, such as the Grado Prestige Green or AUDIO TECHNICA ATP-2XN, since the headshell is such light weight to begin with. Don’t be fooled by the lightweight design though, this headshell is extremely dense, meaning it will conduct vibrations very well. The greater the conduction, the better the detail of the sound.
