HS-001 headshell From DS Audio

Normally, a single vertical pin is utilised on the upper side of the connector, resulting in, “…uneven pressure between the arm and the headshell,” said the company. The HS-001 features both an upper and a lower vertical pin structure, to equalise the pressure on the electrical contacts and ensure an even application of force across the connection to the tonearm

In addition, the whole contact surface is then further anchored by a domed headshell washer, custom-developed by DS Audio. Applied at the point of contact with the tonearm, the washer, “…provides even greater stability and resonance control,” said the company.
