Product Description

Goldring E1 Phono Cartridge is the entry-level model in Goldring's 'E' family of high-performance cartridges. The E1 encapsulates the intricate design ethos of the 'E' range through its superbly precise reproduction of the subtle nuances of your vinyl, so you can listen to your music the way it was meant to be enjoyed.

The E1 is designed to be utilised with medium to high mass tonearms on the majority of mid-range turntables, so you can enjoy a versatile design.

High-Calibre Construction

The E1 showcases a carbon fibre reinforced cantilever alongside a spherical and bonded 0.6mil stylus and a smooth round shank. The model is constructed from carbon as a result of its effectiveness compared to aluminium to boron.

Superb Magnetic Duplex Technology

The E1, like all the cartridges in the 'E' family, showcase Magnetic Duplex Technology. This is a dual magnet generator assembly, which is brilliantly effective as it traces the record more precisely. As a result, you can enjoy enhanced stereo separation and a more immersive sound experience.

Great Stylus and Cantilever

The model showcases spherical styli with a choice of cantilevers and is ideal as an upgrade to any pre-fitted, budget or old cartridge.

Precise Adjustment

The E1 has been specially designed to allow micro-adjustments to be made during the production process by utilising a unique adjustment screw. Consequently, the cartridge can be safely installed in a standard turntable due to the angle that the stylus makes with the record surface being preordained.

As a result, you can enjoy an optimised channel balance with zero degrees of horizontal tracking adjustment needed. Sit back and enjoy a product with a long and consistent life.

    This was used for a unhappy Project RP1 Carbon ....It uses all its energy to sound Warm and Sweet which fits my needs perfectly....I have a very simple system consisting of a Arcam FMJ 18 using the amps Phono and a pair of Sennheiser HD560 headphones....
