Description

Goldring Legacy Moving Coil Phono Cartridge

To ensure a record cartridge reproduces an accurate transcription of the record groove, the cartridge components must be rigidly mounted to the tone arm, whilst simultaneously allowing the tiniest movements of the diamond stylus to be transmitted, via the cantilever, to the sensing coils. The Goldring Legacy Moving Coil Phono Cartridge 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 the headshell. 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 the coils; the latter are hand wound using only the highest purity copper.

Goldring’s Best Cartridge Ever!

For over 100 years, Goldring has been helping people enjoy recorded music in their homes. Their latest design, Goldring Legacy Moving Coil Phono Cartridge is their finest design ever, is the culmination of a century’s knowledge and experience.

Each Legacy cartridge is hand crafted to achieve one simple goal: to retrieve the complete musical performance from a vinyl record; from the widest dynamic transient to the smallest subtle nuance. To ensure The Legacy reproduces an accurate transcription of the record groove, it must be rigidly mounted to the tonearm, whilst simultaneously allowing the tiniest movements made by its diamond stylus to be transmitted, via the cantilever, to the sensing coils.” – Tony Jones, Goldring Product Manager

To this end, the new Legacy cartridge boasts an ultra low resonance magnesium metal body which is both very light and extremely strong. For convenience and rigidity the body is threaded, allowing the cartridge to be easily mounted and accurately aligned into the tonearm’s headshell.

The diamond stylus is a highly polished, very low mass ‘Vital’ fine line design, chosen for its exceptionally low distortion characteristic. This is attached to a hard alloy cantilever for maximum rigidity. The assembly transfers the maximum level of detail from the diamond to the coils; the latter are hand-wound using only the highest purity copper. The bespoke rubber mixture used to form the stylus damper ensures optimum compliance, helping The Legacy deliver a smooth, extended frequency response. Last, but by no means least, a precision, rare earth, Neodymium iron boron magnet contributes to The Legacy’s outstanding dynamics.
