The Oyaide HS-CF headshell was designed for lovers of analog audio and features a 4mm thick headshell made of carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRB), complete with the HSR-AG silver headshell cables. The most essential thing for a headshell is high structural rigidity yet lightweight and capability to attenuate unnecessary vibration. The 17 layer CFRB material achieves this and smoothly attenuates interference from vibrations without altering the behavior of the stylus.
The socket is made of aluminum with a resin press fitted inside. The headshell pins are gold-plated brass, and the lead wires are 5N pure silver which are insulated with a double layered silk covering. The rhodium plated lead tip is made of phosphor bronze.
The HSR-AG headshell cables (included) are 0.2mm 5N pure silver wires manufactured by advanced processes in a high-frequency electric furnace, cold rolling, annealing operation and drawing process. They are stranded in seven lines to insure enough cross-sectional area and minimize its conductor resistance.
The employment of double layered silk covering insulator realizes clean signal transmission without static electrical charge. Although resinic materials such as PVC or Teflon are easy to be negatively charged, in contrast, silk has electric resistivity to static charge and excellent electrical characteristic. Moreover, the glass fiber sleeve also has high insulation property and resistance to electrical static charge.
All things considered, this headshell/cable combination offers a reference grade carrier for your phono cartridge and is compatible with many different tonearms.
