In cooperation with a high quality audio cable maker, Ortofon succeeded in producing ultra high performace headshell cables. Following countless listening sessions to many different types of music, these cartridge leadwires were selected as best performers among numerous configurations of test cables made of best materials available.
LW-7N is the hybrid lead wire made of Ultra high purity copper wire of 7N and 6 N. As there is no foreign particle other than copper 7N (99.99999 % purity) in the wire, music signal can be transmitted without any noise. The end of wire is fastened by rohdium plated terminal.
I installed a new ortofon 2m black (used a shure vst v (jico stylus) & denon dl110) on my linn akito (linn lp 12 sondek) replacing the original supplied ones (25 years old). Leads are probably too long for the akito due to its short headshell and installation was tricky (7 - 8 mm between pins). Initially (taking into account it takes at least 25 hrs to burn in the ortofon) the sound is much more open, more resolved, more detailed, with deeper and tauter bass. I would have preferred shorter leads but I dont think there are any available for this sort of performance.
