Goldring's 1000 series has persistently been popular among music lovers and audiophiles for over 30 years. The 1006 is the entry-level model, however it includes many technical innovations that have made the brand and range a success. The elliptical stylus has been optimised for better definition and clarity in the top of the spectrum. Goldring uses very powerful magnets that provide this 1006 with a high sensitivity and output level, over 6 mV!
The sound is punchy and detailed, the treble is very fine and bright. The bass is deep and the bass lines are clean and well articulated. The sound stage is wide and precise, even if it is not as deep as more ambitious models. This cartridge is ideal for Rega or Linn tonearms.
This Goldring 1006 was undoubtedly designed for audiophiles with high standards who are reluctant to spend huge amounts and it completely fulfils its role in this respect! Highly recommended... Franck
