Goldring 2200 Moving Magnet Phono Cartridge
All Goldring 2000 series cartridges feature Moving Iron technology. This lends them the high levels of detail associated with more expensive moving coil designs whilst retaining the convenience of a replaceable stylus and high output associated with moving magnet types.
The Goldring 2200 cartridge employs a fixed samarium cobolt magnet and high output coil combination so that a very light iron/nickel cantilever end-piece can be used instead of the much heavier permanent magnet used in conventional designs. This reduces the moving mass allowing the stylus to trace the record groove more faithfully. Because of their high output, the Goldring 2200 moving magnet phono cartridge should be used with the standard moving magnet phono input of an integrated amplifier.
The Goldring 2200 features an elliptical diamond stylus and plated alloy cantilever which offers higher definition when compared to conventional spherical styli.
Goldring cartridges have always been great values, the new 2000 series simply takes that philosophy to a new level. The Goldring 2200 is a stand out cartridge, so good it’s used in Music Hall’s outstanding MMF-5.3 turntable.
Sonically superior to the 2100, the 2200 uses a plated alloy cantilever and super-permalloy pole piece for greater tracking ability and lower resonance. These enhancements translate to more detail, greater low-level detail retrieval and a more neutral tonal balance.
