LP GEAR ZUPREME HEADSHELL
- Made in Japan by Jelco to LP Gear Zupreme specifications.
The LP Gear Zupreme™ headshell is the finest half-inch mount headshell available.
Engineered and then hand-assembled and polished to satin crispness by Jelco master artisans in Japan,
each LP Gear Z headshell is holistically designed to achieve highest fidelity.
The Zupreme headshell with headshell wires included weigh 12.0 grams.
For strength, lightness and structural solidity, the LP Gear Z headshell uses an aerospace construction metal alloy we call Zupreme. A similar metal alloy is used in high grade engine components and engine blocks by Porsche, Volkswagen and BMW.
NOTE: For electrical connectivity, the latest production run features a new version of
Jelco gold-plated plugs crimped on to high conductivity sleeve-encased lead wires that are different from the older version.
Each wire is sleeve-insulated to maintain the conductive integrity of the high conductivity copper.
The LP Gear Z headshell is also horizontally adjustable (azimuth) via a flat head screw. This is a critical feature.
It enables the user to horizontally align the diamond tip of a stylus for correct tracing of record grooves thus resulting in highest fidelity.
Now there's a headshell for the supreme listener - the LP Gear Z SL headshell.
