LP GEAR SOAR HD-5 HD 5 HD5 HEADSHELL WIRES SET
The first thing that electrically connects to the cartridge are the headshell lead wires hence their critical importance in the audio chain. The LP Gear SOAR HD5 headshell wires are designed to do nothing else but to faithfully transfer what comes out from the cartridge without coloration, signal loss or distortion. They sound organically natural and musical.
"Holy crap, these are the real deal! I am hearing some serious improvement with these wires... bass is extended and more detailed, transients are more dynamic, imaging has popped into more vivid 3D, recordings that previously sounded smeared now have nuance and depth, etc. etc. etc.
"If your tonearm has a detachable headshell, do yourself a favor and spend $25 on a set of these wires. You can thank me later..." stated a customer in one of the forums.2
"I got the HD5 headshell wires today in the mail and I admit I was skeptical but I promptly installed them on my Ortofon Super OM 40 and Denon DP 35-F turntable and proceeded to give them a test. I was completely blown away by the incredible improvement I heard.
The entire sound spectrum was greatly improved along with a clarity that I didn't know existed on vinyl. The sound stage was also greatly enhanced and it gives a presence as if the artist is in the room with you, a very palpable and natural sound.
By far the biggest improvement I've made and especially considering it was only $20. I couldn't be happier!!!"3
