Description

The 2000 series is Goldring's latest product and was marketed in 2009. It is easily recognisable with its distinctive round design. Technically, the range builds on the 30-year expertise and technology developed for the 1000 series, with a few innovations, and above all, the will to achieve high performance levels on a tight budget. It is available in 5 models with various stylus and generator qualities (magnets, coils, etc.)

 

The 2200 is the second model in the range, its weight, tracking force and high compliance (20) make it compatible with most good quality tonearms. Its high output level above 6 mV and impedance of 47 kOhms make it readily compatible with a good quality preamplifier that is not necessarily exorbitant. The elliptical stylus is mounted onto a light alloy cantilever. The generator is designed based on very powerful Cobalt/Samarium magnets. It is easily secured to the headshell as the body has threaded inserts that are compatible with standard pitch screws.

 

The packaging and presentation are amazingly elegant for a cartridge in this range. OK, a box does not play music, but it's always nice to have a product that looks the part! We enjoyed pairing it with LINN and REGA tonearms, with which it seems to agree. Like many good quality cartridges, it needs a break-in period of a few hours to get the final balance. After it's settled in, the sound becomes subtle and well articulated, with precise and clear treble without any harshness. The bass is tight and very vibrant, certainly the most authentic for the range. It delivers a very demonstrative sound with electro music and Trip Hop. The mids are bright and very open, the vocals are present and stand out amid the instruments. It also works well with Jazz and big Classical orchestras. A great multipurpose, vibrant, punchy and very subtle cartridge, an excellent alternative to the Ortofon 2M Blue or Grado Gold … We recommend it.
