Jelco HS-30 Headshell

Jelco’s premium HS-30 headshell, machined from magnesium alloy with a top layer of rosewood.  Like the HS-25, it has adjustable azimuth but the lead wires are Jelco’s SW-100 pure silver instead of OFC copper.  We were unjustly a bit sniffy about the HS-30, assuming that it’s just a pimped HS-25 but actually it turns out to be a very good performer – it really does sound much better than the HS-25.  We put this down to increased mass (16.9g) and the stiffening/damping provided by the rosewood layer.  So, highly recommended and it looks very smart too.
