Designed and built by Korf Audio to demonstrate what is possible when the classic analogue reproduction technology meets today's advanced design tools, materials and manufacturing techniques. HS-A02 offers an exceptional improvement in analogue reproduction quality through extremely high rigidity — more than twice of the next best headshell on the market.

The headshell is suitable for all types of pickup cartridges that use ½ inch mount. HS-A02 uses industry-standard SME/Ortofon type connectors and fits most tonearms with a straight removable headshell. No rubber washer is necessary for the headshell to lock tight in the connector.
HS-A02 comes carefully packed in a special protective foam-padded box. The nature of the ceramic material is such that slight discolorations and minor shape irregularities are inevitable. They make each headshell unique and do not constitute a defect.
