Goldring Legacy Moving Coil Cartridge

To ensure a cartridge reproduces an accurate transcription of the record groove, the cartridge components must be rigidly mounted to the tonearm, whilst simultaneously allowing the tiniest movements of the diamond stylus to be transmitted, via the cantilever, tothe sensing coils. The Legacy boasts an ultra low resonance magnesium metal body which is both very light and extremely strong.

For convenience and rigidity, it has threaded inserts allowing the cartridge to be easily mounted and accurately aligned into theheadshell. The stylus is a very low mass 'Vital' fine line diamond, which is highly polished and gives extremely low distortion. To maintain rigidity, this is attached to a hard alloy cantilever which transfers the maximum level of detail from the diamond to thecoils; the latter are hand wound using only the highest purity copper. To achieve the optimum compliance required to deliver asmooth, extended frequency response, the stylus damper is formed from a bespoke rubber mixture. Lastly, a precision, rare earth, Neodymium iron boron magnet helps deliver outstanding dynamics.

A very fine cart
Sunday, 18 March 2018  | 

A very good cart. Revealing, but never aggressive. There is no fatigue during listening. The sound signature is the typical Goldring, detailed and analytical with defined basses, nice middles and shining (but not shrieking) highs: plus, this MC is warmer than her sister 2500. The only aspect lacking is, at the moment, a very wide soundstage. But I need to specify that the cart has only 10 hrs of play, so a lot can still happen.
Of course, Analogue Seduction staff has been perfect, fast and professional as always. I can't thank them enough for the perfect service. Bravi!!!
