Pro-Ject Audio Systems now offers the Pro-Ject Headshell Spacer Carbon set for mounting various cartridge systems on the headshell of the tonearm. This should guarantee precise height adjustment.

Story Highlights
  • To match the new tonearms and new headshells, Pro-Ject Audio Systems now also offers the Pro-Ject Headshell Spacer Carbon tuning set.

Pro-Ject Audio Systems is increasingly pushing its range of record players, recently presenting an extremely wide range of tonearms in the form of the new Pro-Ject EVO Tonearm Series and Pro-Ject EVO Premium Tonearm Series lines. As has already reported, a range of headshell systems are now also available to match. (New SME-compatible headshell systems from Pro-Ject Audio Systems)

The particularly high-quality Pro-Ject Lead it C and Pro-Ject Lead it Premium Silver headshell cables and the Pro-Ject Headshell Spacer Carbon set round off the range of tonearm systems from Pro-Ject Audio Systems.

For optimum height equalisation

The Pro-Ject Headshell Spacer Carbon is a set consisting of four small plates designed for precise height adjustment of a cartridge system when mounted on a headshell.

They are made of carbon fibre and are 1.5 mm, 2 mm, 2.5 mm and 3 mm thick respectively. Accordingly, the weight is stated by the manufacturer as 1.3 g, 1.6 g, 1.9 g and 2.2 g respectively, meaning that these are low-mass discs which, according to Pro-Ject Audio Systems, nevertheless boast a high level of rigidity.

According to the company, this ensures that the resonance behaviour of the headshell is improved.

Prices and availability

The new Pro-Ject Headshell Spacer Carbon set, consisting of four different carbon fibre plates, will be available immediately from specialist retailers. The recommended retail price is listed at € 59,-.

Getting to the point

The new Pro-Ject Headshell Spacer Carbon set from Pro-Ject Audio Systems is designed to ensure optimum height adjustment when mounting pickup systems on the headshell of a tonearm. Made from carbon fibre, they offer high rigidity and low mass.
