Product Description

Goldring E3 Phono Cartridge is the top level model in the high-performing 'E' family of phono cartridges. The E3 shares the same traits as the E1 and E2, but in a departure from the E2, features a high-calibre bonded, super-elliptical stylus, measuring in at 0.3 x 0.7 mil.

Consequently, the E3 enjoys an improved ability to pick up high-frequency groove details, compared to ordinary elliptical or spherical styli as a result of its smaller front to back radius. This improvement offers the winning effect of reducing pesky sibilance in vocal vinyl recordings.

The E3 typifies the E range, with its sleek design, authentic sound reproduction and utilisation of Magnetic Duplex Technology and Goldring Expert Adjustment.

High-Performance Stylus and Cantilever 

Thanks to its sublime, super elliptical stylus, the E3 is a perfect step-up for those aiming to retrieve even more sound detail from the record groove.

Stellar Magnetic Duplex Technology

Like the E1 and E2, the E3 also utilises Magnetic Duplex Technology. This is superb as the dual magnet generator assembly has the capability to trace your favourite records with much more accuracy and precision. As a result, you can immerse yourself in an improved stereo separation sound and more transparent sound performance.

Super-Precise Adjustment

The E3 has been precisely designed to allow micro-adjustments to be incorporated during the production process as a result of a unique adjustment screw. Consequently, the cartridge can be safely and securely installed in a standard turntable due to the angle that the stylus makes with the record surface being predicted.

The E3 offers an enhanced channel balance with absolutely no degrees of horizontal tracking adjustment needed. You can then be certain that the E3 will enjoy a long and consistent tracking life.

Press Reviews

  • What Hi-Fi Awards 2019 "Best cartridge under £150" (What Hi-Fi magazine)

    What Hi-Fi Award 2018 "Best cartridge" (What Hi-Fi magazine)

  • "We can’t think of a price-appropriate deck that won’t suit this moving magnet cartridge... It sounds clean and precise, delivering the bombastic opening to Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony with all the clarity and power it demands." (What Hi-Fi Magazine April 2018)
  • "While majoring on control and composure, the E3 still has enough in the way of dynamic punch and scale to satisfy with music such as this. It’s an organised sound, one that can keep track of myriad instrumental strands without losing its way. This Goldring skilfully treads the middle path tonally. It’s balanced, delivering enough in the way of treble extension and low-frequency weight to satisfy." (What Hi-Fi Magazine April 2018)
  • "Through the Goldring, vocals are expressive, drums hit hard and there’s a good dose of energy. The sound it delivers is clear, informative and still fun. We can’t ask much more than that at this level. If you’ve got a good mid-priced deck that’s in need of an upgrade to the cartridge, we can’t think of an alternative that’s so capable. Simply, the E3 is a great buy." (What Hi-Fi Magazine April 2018)
  • "The E3 is a superbly realised cartridge that will work well with the majority of affordable turntables... A balanced and detailed performer, refinement and clarity, expressive dynamics, easy to fit, unfussy nature." (What Hi-Fi Magazine April 2018)
