”A well-balanced performer that works well across a wide range of music.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2021 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.

Get the best from your records, with the Goldring E3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crisp and lively sound! After bouncing around a number of YouTube reviews, I figured I couldn't go wrong trying out the Goldring E3 as a sub £100 cartridge. Very I glad I took the plunge as the sound output, while a tad lower than my previous (and old) Rega R100, is crisp and lively with deep bass and great separation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy set up and great sound After reading favorable reviews for the E3 ordered from Richer Sound and received the next day. This is for my vintage Sansui SR-222. The Goldring is wider than the old style headshell will take, no problem setting up with a new replacement headshell. Very pleased with it from the first playing, will only get better once settled in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound Bought to replace om5e on project essentials 2,only problem was I had to remove the stylus lift to get it to balance out and clear the lid of the turntable. Still great sound but a bit more advice when buying would have been useful. I was advised it would more or less have been a direct swap. The e3 is to my system a great improvement, hence 5 stars,great clarity ,tight deep bass and very good stereo imaging.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Goldreing E3 MM cartridge Easy to install. No nuts and bolls. Replaced my AT3600P with the Goldring E3. This opened the sound and added sweet top end. Very impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Service & Excellent Product I was sad to see my local Richer Sounds store had closed but happy to see they were offering an online service. Purchased the Goldring E3 MM on recommendation from Which HiFi and decided to use my favourite store. Glad I did. My order arrived unexpectedly the next day. Obvious a quality item, well packaged with clear instructions. Set up in no time listening to my beloved discs again. The E3 is outstanding for the price point. Very happy indeed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Superb cartridge This cartridge has a beautiful sound, rich and warm with space between instruments and crystal clear vocals . Vocals are a real strength with the lyrics on some tracks that I had previously had to look up now quite clear. Acoustic instruments have that “ in the same room” sound and even electric instruments have great detail. Bass is clear without being over heavy. My one note of caution is that the needle does not like scratches and jumps more than my previous Ortofon. But for sound quality it really is superb.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent cartridge from all points of view This cartridge was only fitted to my turntable a little over a week ago, but I have lost count of how many of my vinyl favourites I have enjoyed listening to since then - both new and old. The E3 has received excellent reviews from the technical press and many users like myself. All agree it plays well above its price so, anybody looking for a new cartridge need not hesitate in choosing an E3 in my opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Goldring Play a Master Stroke. My new Goldring E3 MM. looks so retro. It sounds gorgeous; especially on classical music and violins. Acoustic guitars sound really natural. Lots of space around the soloists and vocalists. Lots of punch and excitement. A great cartridge.
