This classified is for a Goldring G-1042 MM cartridge with bonus 1022GX replacement stylus. The buyer will receive a 1042 cartridge (with 1042 stylus) and a 1022GX stylus. The 1042 and 1022GX are classics and will provide the demanding audiophile with many hours of stellar performance. The extended groove contact of its Gyger S (1042) and Gyger I (1022GX) diamonds provides unsurpassed resolution of fine groove modulations, producing an exceptionally detailed, smooth and musical sound quality.
As an added bonus, a like-new 1022GX replacement stylus is included. I originally purchased the 1022GX cartridge, then replaced the stylus with the 1042 . Since they share a common body, the buyer will have the option of swapping the two styli to compare the sound, and have a backup stylus in case of disaster.
Specifications: Output: 6.5mV Frequency Response: 20~20,000Hz Load Impedance: 47 ohms Channel Separation: 25dB Channel Sensitivity Difference: 2dB or less Tracking Tip: Gyger S (1042); Gyger I (1022GX).
This cartridge has less than 150 hours of use with the 1042 stylus and less than 10 hours of use with the 1022GX stylus. I purchased a selection of cartridges to see which worked best with my Technics SL-1200 Mk2 turntable and fell for a JICO’d Shure M97xE, making this cartridge and replacement stylus available for sale.
Important Note: This sale includes everything the buyer will need to set up the cartridge except for the headshell and a small slotted screwdriver. Included are headshell leads and mounting screws. Note that, in addition to the original mounting screws that came with the cartridge, a set of upgraded screws with Allen wrench is included.
Shipping is a flat $25 to any U.S. address in the lower 48 states. Shipping to any other U.S. address will be calculated separately. U.S. buyers only. I will pick up PayPal’s fees.
