We have for
sale a brand new Goldring 2500 stereo cartridge. This is a high output moving
iron type cartridge. This is brand new. It has never been mounted or used.
2000 series cartridges feature Moving Iron technology. This lends them the high
levels of detail associated with more expensive moving coil designs whilst
retaining the convenience of a replaceable stylus and high output associated
with moving magnet types. The cartridge employs a fixed samarium cobolt magnet
and high output coil combination so that a very light iron/nickel cantilever end-piece
can be used instead of the much heavier permanent magnet used in conventional
designs. This reduces the moving mass of the cartridge allowing the stylus to
trace the record groove more faithfully. Because of their high output, Goldring
2000 series cartridges should be used with the standard moving magnet phono
input of an integrated amplifier.
The 2500 has
a tapered cantilever with 2 SD diamond giving it a smooth but detailed sound,
while the metal body delivers fine bass definition.
