GOLDRING 1042 PHONO CARTRIDGE

The Goldring 1042 phono cartridge offers superbly accurate and harmonically opulent sound quality with its acclaimed Gyger S diamond stylus. Advanced diamond tip polishing ensures excellent tracking ability and reduces record wear. The Goldring 1042 offers pinnacle performance at a fraction of what others exorbitantly charge for similar quality.

The Goldring 1042 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 1042 phono cartridge is rigorously tested at the factory to ensure optimum standards of performance and reliability.

Very good 78 RPM stylus

The LP Gear Cerapreme 78 stylus brings the most out of the CEC/Chuo Denshi type ceramic cartridge for 78 RPM reproduction. If you put this stylus into a real Japanese CEC cartridge in a serious turntable, you end up with a very nice 78 reproducer. If you put it in a little Numark PT01, it makes for a very nice portable player for 78s. At its current price, this stylus is hard to beat.

I can't give a review at this time as the needles were purchased as spares and I have not used any, but they look exactly as the original.

Satisfied
