GOLDRING 1012GX PHONO CARTRIDGE

The Goldring 1012GX phono cartridge uses the acclaimed Gyger II diamond stylus. This is a fine-line type which gives smooth extended high frequencies, low distortion and reproduces a highly detailed and dynamic sound. Advanced diamond tip polishing ensures excellent tracking ability and reduces record wear. The Goldring 1012GX represents outstanding value for money and has become one of Goldring's most popular cartridges.

The Goldring 1012GX phono cartridge has a strong, one-piece molded body made from an ultra-rigid glass-reinforced polyester. All fixed parts can be held securely in place and the body can be tightly bolted to the head shell to create structural unity. Its highly efficient magnetic circuit makes for a smooth and extended frequency response. As with all Goldring cartridges, the Goldring 1012GX phono cartridge is rigorously tested at the factory to ensure optimum standards of performance and reliability.

Upgraded from the original to this and the sound is incredible even in the Retrolife turntable I got it for.

Exceptional value for money and excellent service!

Having spent years accumulating mostly Onkyo vintage kit and designg/building my own speakers, I thought it was time to change the stylus on the excellent AT 132EP cartridge which came with a wonderful Technics SL QL1 Linear Tracking turntable I recently bought in excellent condition. After some research, came across various reviews on alternatives, then found the LP Tunes site and decided I would spend the extra for their 152 replacement stylus with the Shibata diamond. Oh man am I glad I did! The lack of surface noise and improved musical reproduction is mind blowing. If you have a suitable cartridge, I cannot recomend this stylus enough and also the excellent service and fast delivery from LP Tunes.
But I have to add that now I have two problems...
a) deciding whether to listen to MUSIC on the Technics turntable or through the also extraordinary value Topping D70s DAC with the splendid Onkyo DX 6750 CD player (especially as I got both 2nd hand in mint condition for half pice) or high quality streaming...
and b) still trying to wrap my head around how the heck that little needle skipping over the grooves can re-create that wonderful sound.
I can live with those dilemmas because as Plato said... "Music is a moral law. It gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, a charm to sadness, and life to everything. It is the essence of order, and leads to all that is good, just and beautiful!"

Needle replacement

The replacement was received quick. I was so appreciative how they staff was assisting me in helping me

This stylus is a perfect fit

I ordered the replacement stylus and received it very quickly. The fit is perfect, but I haven't had the time to anylize the sound quality as I replaced a Compass Gold stylus. Right off the bat it sounds pretty good. I have three other cartridges and this cartridge was a pretty close performer to my Ortofon 2M Blue, with the Compass Gold stylus.
