Goldring E3 MM

MM Cartridge

£99
”A well-balanced performer that works well across a wide range of music.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2020 award-winner.

Magnetic Duplex Technology for enhanced clarity

The Goldring E3 features Magnetic Duplex Technology (MDT) for class-leading sound quality. A ‘dual magnet’ generator assembly accurately traces the record groove providing better stereo separation and a more involving and musical sound.

Precise adjustment
With its special adjustment screw you can make the most precise adjustments to cartridge alignment. The result is optimised channel balance with zero degrees of horizontal tracking adjustment required. This ensures a consistent performance and reduced wear and tear on both the stylus and your records.

Elliptical stylus
Using an elliptical stylus, the range-topping E3 cartridge gets deeper into the groove – in every sense. Elliptical styli have a sharper profile and so go deeper into the record’s groove – meaning greater surface contact. This not only gives you improved sound but also reduced record wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb upgrade I bought this to upgrade the cartridge on my Denon DP300-F turntable and what a difference! Easy to fit and set up, sound is more enhanced and another level from the stock cartridge. Very pleased and very good value!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Upgrade I bought this to replace the stock cart in my Denon dp300f turntable. There were none in stock in my local Richer Sounds however staff managed to source one for me and delivered it straight to my door. The sound difference is very noticeable and has brought new life to my old vinyl. Great value for money and fantastic service from RS as always.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Huge improvement on my Pro-Ject II sound I accidentally damaged the Ortofon Red stylus that came with my Pro-Ject II, so decided to give another cartridge a try for comparison. The Goldring E3 came highly recommended and within my price range, and it doesn't disappoint. The Ortofon produced a full, balanced sound, with warm deep bass and a crisp high end. The Goldring does too, but it's the mid-range that I'm most impressed by. The sound feels more complex, and I'm picking out new detail in my favourite records that I didn't know was there. It arrived quickly and securely packaged, and it's pretty straightforward to fit. Delighted with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simplicity and style Ordered the E3 and came the next day. Super simple to fit and the shape makes for easy alignment (providing you have an alignment protractor). Sounds clear and bright, and has breathed new life into my project deck that I’ve had for nigh on 15 years. Incredible value.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Long overdue! Bought this as replacement for my ailing 30 Yr old Ortofon. More detailed sound, better still after 3hours running in. Very happy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice easy listening sound ! Equipment Garrard 401, SME 3009 Series 2 Imp + FD200 Fluid Damper. I recently decided to try a more modern cartridge after using a Shure V15 Type 3 for many years and was unsure that the replacement stylus I obtained for it was as good as the original. As the SME is usually paired with high compliance cartridges I found that these have fell out of favour over the years and the choice now was rather limited. So I decided after reading and listening to some online reviews to take a chance with the Goldring E3. I am at present still running it in so it is early days yet, but what I am hearing from it at present is very pleasing indeed, nice uncoloured sounds across the spectrum . I did a tape copy of a LP track to do a comparison with the Shure and then the Goldring and i have to say i did prefer the Goldring bearing in mind the Shure no longer as its original stylus. So at present this cartridge gets the thumbs up from me, especially as it has lowered in price at the moment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little cartridge. Had it about a month now. Easy to install and align. A great performance that reveals A LOT more detail from my records. Wish I’d bought it sooner. Great service too from RS. Couldn’t be more pleased. Many thanks.
