”The Goldring 1042 is a very good cartridge indeed, and makes the most of any recording.” ‘What Hi-Fi? magazine’. 5-star review.
Top quality Gyger S stylus for the greatest detail
The highlight of the Goldring 1042 cartridge is the Gyger S stylus used. These diamond tips are superfine, letting them get deeper into the record’s groove. The deeper the stylus goes the more detailed the sound. Because the stylus goes deeper but not wider it also has the beneficial effect of not damaging your vinyl as cheaper styli can.Brings the best out of any music
The advantage of using such a top quality diamond stylus has a positive effect on all types of music, making the 1042 a great all-rounder. Rock music has a stronger, cleaner bass, dance music has more depth and Classical music has a truer timbre. Whatever the music, the 1042 will ‘bring it into the room’.Replaceable MM stylus
Unlike MC cartridges that use fixed styli, the 1042 is a Moving Magnet design with a detachable stylus. This makes it possible to replace the stylus should it break or when it eventually wears out. MM cartridges also benefit from a near-universal compatibility with phono pre-amps.
Get deeper into the groove, with the Goldring 1042.
