Very proudly we introduce LH-33 clamp. It is an all corian clamp but with some features that they make it to stand out among clamp. We want it in corian because it has been proved the excellent characteristic in audio system
What you see immediately it is the strobo for 33 and 45rpm. This is the 50Hz. version but the 60Hz. is available also.
What you can’t see from the photo it is that the knob on it can turn and doing that it clang on to the turntable spindle. The vynil is strongly clench to the turntable platter. We want ideal coupling record and turntable.
Hii, I propose to the forum members this new corian product. Based on the great expereince of the corian mat for Lencos, I have made this Sme type tonearm board. It can be in white or black corian. It is 12mm. high.
LH-5 went under few refinements and now we have the best looking and more reliable corian platter on the market!
Just received from a friend:
Hi Giorgio,I have two systems, one is as L78 with 9“Karmadon tonearm. For the L78 I ordered the mat.But yesterday I tried the mat in my main system. A diy turntable with Scheu 80mm Platter and a paralell airtracking tonearm, at the moment with an Ortofon Spu N, with amazing results. The sound is much cleaner, seems faster. All in all a big step foreward and I think about ordering a second mat within the next few weeks. On top of the Lh-5 I am using a transfi mat.
From a customer a LH-2 on a great CTC-Classic-301.
Those are his impression
The spindle replacement arrived a couple of days ago (thank you!), and I’ve just got it fitted and the LH-2 installed. The VTA adjustment on my SME M2 tonearm had to be virtually at its maximum extension to cope with the extra depth – as I knew it would be. Playing the first record with the LH-2 in place (see pictures attached) the sound is very, very good!
Ideally I would like the other platter (LH-4) to go with it, but my arm can’t cope with this. I did have an idea of getting another spacer for the base of the arm, but as the tonearm cables attach to the side of the base, not the bottom, this wouldn’t work as there would be no space for the connection.
I know I will enjoy listening to music with the LH-2!
I am learning to listen again. The platter has changed the dynamic presentation of well loved recordings significantly. There is now very little background noise and the detail within the background is more coherent. Sounds just swell from the background too. Music flows and there is better continuity throughout a track. It makes some difficult music more listenable. Bass initially appears to be lighter but when it is present it really makes itself known. Well recorded drums have real impact. The frequency extremes have been extended and are very clean and fast. No muddle or brightness. Soundstage has expanded in width and depth and the imagery within is more stable. Lots of air. It is now much easier to find a satisfactory listening level and it’s not as loud as before. Great for late night listening. Sadly not all recordings are equal but most benefit and all are enjoyable. So far I have tried a 1mm pigskin mat which I didn’t really care for, though detailed it was a bit lifeless. Might try a thicker one.
Currently I am using an Oyaide BR-12 that I used on the Lenco platter and that is very enjoyable. Familiarity maybe.
I’ve got a 1mm nitrile cork mat that I will try between the LH-2 and a Boston Audio Mat 1 to prevent possible slippage at the interface. I have high hopes for that combination. Though I’m in no hurry as I am really enjoying it right now. I would be interested if there were any other mats you might consider worthy of trying. My arm is a Linn Akito with an Ortofon OM20 cartridge. This feeds the phono input of my Crayon CFA 1.2 which in turn drives my ART Emotion loudspeakers. All in all a nice system. I also have an Aurender N100H and an Auralic Vega for digital playback. Though excellent sounding it’s no match for my analogue source. Oh and sometime I may try it on my Garrard 401 with Audio Origami PU7 and Shelter 501 Mk2.
I listen maninly to jazz and rock with a little classical.
It was made as a special order from a client. The LH-4/16.
It is a LH-4 with a 16inches , 40mm., diameter.
Here it is how it compare to a 33rpm record and the ordinary LH-2.
It is really Big. Here it is installed in one of our audio system for quality control. It is mounted on early Lencohell turntable. It’s size allow to mount only a 12inch arm.
My collague Roberto did a listening session with it and he said he liked very much and he is going to make one for himself. It isn’t a night and day difference but a whorty upgrade. He hear an even more rock solid image.
Cerntanly is not easy to implement in every already existent plinth. Anyway if you have in mind to go for a new plinth take this possibility into consideration.
Of course it must be used with the LH-2 spindle extension. All of original Lenco L75 facilities are warranted.
