HS-4 and HS-4S is the new style head shell which uses a high intensity and lightweight carbon fiber.
A carbon fiber is the latest material that is adopted as an airplane, a racing car, etc. as tip compound material, and attracts attention.
A carbon fiber is molded using an epoxy resin etc. and it is manufactured.
The feature is proud of the weight of the abbreviation about 1/5, and twice as many high rigidity as steel and steel, and acoustic velocity (propagation rate of sound) is also excellent.
The carbon fiber was molded by HS-4 and HS-4S in size as thick as 5mm, high intensity was maintained, and head shell was made.
The carbon fiber was hard and it was famous as a difficult material of processing, and since processing cost was attached highly, it was a problem of the product spread of carbon products.
Processing of HS-4 and HS-4S made full use of a CNC processing machine in our company, and it succeeded in lowering cost by processing all at its company.
A shell lead HS-4S is with standard lead and HS-4 are the types which soldered 6N copper wire to the connector part directly.
Although HS-4S cannot perform exchange of a shell lead, there is a sound quality merit by one passing point of contact decreasing, and the freshness of sound improves greatly.
The result weight containing a lead fulfills the ideal conditions as about 11g or head shell which it becomes, is light and is called a light weight and quantity rigidity.
Generally, since the dynamic sensitivity becomes high so that the weight in which the tone arm included a cartridge and head shell is light, it contributes to the improvement in the amount of information.
