Goldring E3 Phono Moving Magnet Cartridge

  • Magnetic Duplex Technology
  • Expert Adjustment
  • Elliptical Stylus profile
  • Aluminum Cantilever

The Goldring E3 Cartridge has numerous positive reviews including reviews from The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, ecoustics, What Hi-Fi, Stereophile, The Vinyl Attack!, The Ear, and more!

"It produces a classic vinyl sound, warm, relaxed and effortless…"- The Ear

"A superbly realised cartridge that will work well with the majority of affordable turntables. - What Hi-Fi?, 5 Stars & 2020 Award Winner

"It brought out every note with a precision I never imagined a moving magnet could muster." Stereophile

Accurate Replication Of The Original Record Production
The Goldring philosophy is to promote the accurate replication of the original record production, maintaining the creative nuances, musicality and rhythm the artist intended you to hear. With the versatile E Series, this is easy to achieve; each is designed to be simple to fit to the majority of budget to medium priced turntables.

The E3 cartridge, representing the top of the range features the same aluminum cantilever as the E2, but benefits from a superior, bonded, super-elliptical (0.3 x 0.7 mil) stylus. This gives it better high frequency detail retrieval over ordinary elliptical (0.4 x 0.7 mil) or spherical (0.6 mil) types due to its smaller front-to-back radius. The main effect is the reduction of sibilance, especially in high level vocal recordings.

Magnetic Duplex Technology
All cartridges in the range feature Magnetic Duplex Technology- a 'dual magnet' generator assembly with an identical geometry to that of the original cutting head. This means it can more accurately reproduce the stereo information in the record groove, providing better channel separation and a more involving and musical sound stage.

Expert Adjustment
The E-series cartridges have been designed to allow micro-adjustments to be made during production using a special adjustment screw. This means the cartridge can be safely installed in a typical turntable because the angle that the stylus makes with the record surface has been pre-set. The result is an optimized channel balance with zero degrees of horizontal tracking adjustment required. This ensures a consistent and reassuring performance for the life of the product.

Stylus/Cantilever
The E3 model with its re­fined super elliptical stylus is a worthwhile upgrade for those wishing to squeeze even more information and detail from the record groove.

The Goldring E Series Moving Magnet Cartridges

The Goldring philosophy is to promote the accurate replication of the original record production, maintaining the creative nuances, musicality and rhythm the artist intended you to hear. With the versatile E Series, this is easy to achieve with all three cartridges in the range; each is designed to be simple to fit to the majority of budget to medium priced turntables with little or no fuss.

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
