MM Cartridge

”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 Excellent upgrade Bought this to replace the stock carbon on my Rega P2. Apparently it takes a couple of days playing to reach it's potential which is nice because it sounds sweet out of the box.It was easy to fit and align and the diffence in bass and treble is very noticable.I would recommend this to any one looking for an inexpensive upgrade from the carbon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from QUALITY PRODUCT GIVING QUALITY SOUND I purchase a Audio Technica AT-PL-120 and was very disappointed with the reproduction from the generic cartridge so I studied all the reviews an notes on the top selling cartridges and settled on the GOLDRING E3 MM and boy what a great choice that was I was hearing my vinyl as never before and it was so easy to fit and set up thanks GOLDRING!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GOLDRING E3 MM Ordered this Cartridge on Thursday, as i had to replace a Reg Bias2, which when trying to track and weight, I managed to bend the cantilever right out of shape, which i had been given as a Christmas present from my Wife (on my recommendation). It was supposed to arrive on Monday, but it has arrived today about an hour ago. So firstly that to Richer Sounds for a super fast service. The Goldring is a doddle to fit, track and set the VFT. I did this inside 40 mins. Given its not bedded in yet, my 180gram re-issue of Young Americans sounds fabulous. Bass is handled with aplomb and is well extended and super tight. Mids are wonderfully open and clear, with Mr Bowie sat right in the middle of the soundstage. Treble is sweet and crisp but never harsh. My Rega Planar 1 is now sounding wonderful. Would I recommend this cartridge? wholeheartedly!! massive improvement over the P1 stock Carbon. If like me you are new to the fitting of a new cartridge, I would avoid the Rega Cartridges at all costs, absolute nightmare to fit. What Hifi award winning cartridge for the last 2 years, I can see and hear why! Enough said. Thank you again Richer for a a fabulous service as always.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic upgrade for the money I've had the goldring e3 now for around a week. Being basically in lockdown its had a lot of use. Amazing difference in the sound quality. Everything about it is better. Better separation, clear vocal,more dynamics, tighter bass. Easy to fit aswell, being my first time i was a little apprehensive,but managed it quit easy. (Would be a nice idea to come with an alignment protractor tool.) Would highly recommend to anyone who's thinking of upgrading. I fitted mine to my denon dp300f.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth balanced sound I bought this cartridge a few weeks ago and very pleased with its performance compaired to ortofon 2M Red. Smoother treble and more rounded sound but still plenty of detail, good soundstage and channel separation.
