This Goldring E1 MM cartridge is the most affordable phono cartridge offered by the Anglo-Saxon manufacturer. Even though it is manufactured under technical specifications in Japan, the Goldring E1 MM cartridge fully respects the philosophy of Goldring.

Goldring E1: features

The 3 Goldring cartridges of the “E” range are equipped with the “Magnetic Duplex Technology™”.

The generator receives a double magnet (one per channel) which makes it possible to obtain a better channel separation, a better soundstage and dynamics. 

The Goldring E1 is manufactured with a carbon fiber reinforced cantilever combined with a glued spherical stylus (0.6 mil).

Carbon is an efficient alternative to the more common materials such as aluminium. It allows fairly similar results on the majority of entry level vinyl turntables.

Goldring E1: compatibility

The Goldring E1 has been optimized to be compatible with tonearms models with medium effective mass that are found on the majority of “vintage” vinyl turntables and entry level turntables.

Goldring E1: adjustment

Micro adjustments can be made during the manufacturing of the MM cartridges of the “E” range. This is made possible by using an adjusting screw.

This allows to safely install the cartridge on any standard vinyl turntable because the angle (azimuth) that the stylus makes with the surface of the vinyl disc has been preset. The result is an optimized balance between the channels, with 0 degree of adjustment.

The assembly is simplified by brass threaded inserts which receive the screws.

Goldring E1: listening and review

The “E” range is designed to accurately reproduce the original recording, while maintaining the nuances and dynamics. 

This Goldring E1 MM cartridge makes it possible to update and optimize the “small” vintage turntables or entry level turntables, without spending an unreasonable amount of money. The musicality and performance are present.

This Goldring MM E1 cartridge is certainly one of the best choices in this range! In addition, the Goldring E1 MM cartridge can be upgraded by adding on a Goldring E2 stylus or Goldring E3 stylus.
