Product Information

The Goldring philosophy is to promote the accurate replication of the original record production, maintaining the creative nuances, musicality, and rhythm the artist intended you to hear. With the versatile E Series, this is easy to achieve; each is designed to be simple to fit the majority of budget to medium priced turntables.

The E3 cartridge, representing the top of the range features the same aluminum cantilever as the E2, but benefits from a superior, bonded, super-elliptical (0.3 x 0.7 mil) stylus. This gives it better high-frequency detail retrieval over ordinary elliptical (0.4 x 0.7 mil) or spherical (0.6 mil) types due to its smaller front-to-back radius. The main effect is the reduction of sibilance, especially in high-level vocal recordings

Magnetic Duplex Technology

All cartridges in the range feature Magnetic Duplex Technology-a 'dual magnet' generator assembly with an identical geometry to that of the original cutting head. This means it can more accurately reproduce the stereo information in the record groove, providing better channel separation and a more involving and musical sound stage.

Expert Adjustment

The E-series cartridges have been designed to allow micro-adjustments to be made during production using a special adjustment screw. This means the cartridge can be safely installed in a typical turntable because the angle that the stylus makes with the record surface has been pre-set. The result is an optimized channel balance with zero degrees of horizontal tracking adjustment required. This ensures consistent and reassuring performance for the life of the product.

Stylus/Cantilever

Featuring spherical styli with a choice of cantilevers, the E1 and E2 models are ideal as an upgrade to any budget, pre-fitted or obsolete cartridge. The E3 model with its re­fined super elliptical stylus is a worthwhile upgrade for those wishing to squeeze even more information and detail from the record groove.

Goldring E3
It's hard to give a $169 cartridge 5 stars - considering whats out there to be heard these days. If my review were limited to cartridges under 200, I'd add that last star.
My turntable turned 51 this year.  This bit of plastic surgery has it sounding better than new.

Ira S was an outstanding chat support specialist. He knew his products, did not 'sell' me and was the main reason I chose WWS as my vendor.

Did a bunch of research looking for a cartridge better than entry-level but still economical and found a number of positive reviews for the Goldring E3.

A GOOD REPLACEMENT FOR A TECHNICS SL1200MK2 ?
A shopper on Jul 31, 2022
  Thanks for your inquiry. The Goldring E3 is an excellent match for the SL1200MK2. 2 grams is the recommended VTF.
