Goldring 2300

Description

Use of the acclaimed Gyger II fine line diamond offers high clarity and excellent tracking ability. This cartridge will upgrade many mid-range turntables, allowing them to produce an even finer sound.


To ensure a cartridge reproduces an accurate transcription of the record groove, the cartridge components must be rigidly mounted to the tonearm, whilst simultaneously allowing the tiniest movements of the diamond stylus to be transmitted, via the cantilever, to the sensing coils. The Legacy boasts an ultra low resonance magnesium metal body which is both very light and extremely strong. For convenience and rigidity, it has threaded inserts allowing the cartridge to be easily mounted and accurately aligned into the headshell.


The stylus is a very low mass ‘Vital’ fine line diamond, which is highly polished and gives extremely low distortion. To maintain rigidity, this is attached to a hard alloy cantilever which transfers the maximum level of detail from the diamond to the coils; the latter are hand wound using only the highest purity copper. To achieve the optimum compliance required to deliver a smooth, extended frequency response, the stylus damper is formed from a bespoke rubber mixture. Lastly, a precision, rare earth, Neodymium iron boron magnet helps deliver outstanding dynamics.
