Ortofon LH-2000 headshell
The LH-2000 is a basic high quality headshell designed specifically for HiFi applications. Providing a clean, minimalist aesthetic, the LH-2000 is great for a wide variety of cartridges, e.g. the 2M Series .
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-2000 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.
