  • New TechDas Headshell

    Titanium unified universal head shell
    Head shell TDHS 01 Ti
    High rigidity head shell by integral processing of pure titanium material subjected to special hardening treatment
    TDHS-01Ti "universal standard titanium · head shell" TDHS-01Ti "has been developed by making full use of the know-how and advanced processing technology of metal materials acquired through the development of the reference turntable, the air Force series which is highly evaluated worldwide .

    In order to bring out the performance of the cartridge 100%, the head shell is required to have high rigidity. However, if the rigidity is high and the weight is high, it becomes a problem as the performance of the head shell. Because the head shell is attached to the tip of the tone arm, as the mass of inertia increases, it will cause low-frequency resonance etc. which can cause unstable movement.
    In other words, ideal head shells are required to achieve both high rigidity and low mass. To raise the rigidity, it is necessary to use a material with high rigidity, but in the head shell from which high rigidity material is cut out, it can not be made into a thin shape due to difficulty of processing, and it remains high mass Head shells are scattered. It is one-handed off as a head shell with this.

    The strength of TechDAS is the accumulation of abundant know-how on metal materials and advanced processing technology. In order to realize an ideal head shell, we challenged complicated and difficult machining that made it possible to achieve both a strong frame structure and a thin wall shape, and also to join with the tone arm. As a result of taking advantage of the processing technology that can be held, the head shell which can be said to be ideal is completed with exquisite balance of rigidity and mass. Moreover, by a phenomenal polishing technique, the top surface is a beautiful mirror finish polished finish while it is titanium.


    This product Conventional product
    At the end of processing, special hardening treatment is applied to the surface. In addition to realizing further rigidity improvement, it is also a surface finish that is not easily scratched on actual use. The connector part with the integrally processed tone arm does not incorporate general general-purpose connectors, precision machining from a single pin, incorporates teflon with a low dielectric constant to the insulation part, incorporates gold Rhodium treatment which is superior in corrosion resistance was applied, and the contact loss of electric signal was made as small as possible. Enjoy 100% of the performance of your existing cartridge, please enjoy delicate and energetic music overflowing, which you could not listen to until now.

    ※ The finger attached to the shell part can be easily removed. Please remove those who are unnecessary.

    Price: ~$2200.

    I might buy this just to have. I do like how tech das notes "pure titanium" like that's something available. Titanium in commercial applications is an alloy of varying composition and %. How the raw alloy is processed makes a great difference in its final quality. The surface polish is exceptional and very expensive, probably adds more to the price than the material and fabrication.

    All together a nice looking piece.

      Is that $US 2200 for a headshell?


      Audio Techinca make a pure Titanium headshell for $299

      Yamamoto make one for $160

          total BS pricing. It has actually turned me off Tech Das a little.

        Add a platinum chain and it would make a nice pendant gift for the wife or girlfriend on Valentine's day. Then, when she is not using it, you can "borrow" it to use in your system. Tell her that diamonds aren't that practical except for styli

          While I do not anticipate ever playing in this league, if you are looking at $200K TT a $2K headshell isn't too crazy!

          Getting down to value is tricky but I doubt Tech Das sells enough to afford forging or stamping dies for their pieces so this was most likely machined. Given the cost of stock, machining, and assembly I could see this costing $500 per piece to manufacture so $2K isn't outrageous from a cost perspective either.

            Joe,

            To make it easier to "borrow" make sure you mount and align a cartridge on it too. Then all you have to do is take it off the chain and play. Would be perfect for my strain gauge as I can remove the stylus!
