Goldring Eroica HX High Output Moving Coil Cartridge

New, pure-iron cross-armature design for correct impendence matching
Ultra-fine, enamelled-copper windings for higher output and low crosstalk
Equipped with Gyger II diamond stylus that can trace frequencies as high as 50kHz without distortion
Housing made from lightweight Pocan® composite material, chosen for its anti-colouration properties
 
 

Works with moving magnet inputs

Eroica HX manages to combine thrillingly accomplished performance with unheard-of ease of use thanks to Goldring’s engineering know-how. By using numerous ultra-fine enamelled-copper windings - so fine they literally float - Eroica HX has output sufficient to work with moving magnet phono inputs without compromising the low crosstalk that moving coil designs are prized for. 

Pure-iron cross-armature design

By deploying a new pure-iron cross-armature, the copper windings have a permeable path for the parallel magnetic field in which to operate, resulting in greater output and correct impedance matching. In addition, the cross-shape design can separate left and right stereo channels far more effectively than the moving magnet alternative.

Gyger II diamond stylus

Eroica HX’s Gyger II diamond stylus has a tiny five micron playing radius, which means it can trace frequencies as high as 50kHz without distortion, and thanks to the cross-armature’s low mass it can react to musical transients with absolute precision.

Light but rigid Pocan® housing

This is, unsurprisingly, a delicate mechanism. So Goldring has ensured it’s fully protected by enclosing it in a light, rigid and attractive housing formed from Pocan®. As well as the benefits of its light weight and stiffness, Pocan® has no input into the sound the cartridge makes. 

Compatible with all tonearm designs

Eroica HX is compatible with virtually all tonearms, no matter if they’re straight, S-shaped or J-shaped, and no matter if they’re made from aluminium or carbon-fibre. Its standard size fitment means it can be mounted using standard fixings, from above or below the headshell.
