The Goldring 1042 highly acclaimed MM Phono cartridge incorporates a nude natural diamond stylus with a Gyger S profile to trace the smallest groove profile with complete fidelity producing an extremely detailed, smooth and musical sound.
The 1042 is a cartridge for the audiophile who demands the ultimate performance from their system. The extended groove contact of its Gyger S diamond gives the 1042 unsurpassed resolution of the fine groove modulations, producing an exceptionally detailed, smooth and musical sound quality.The 1000 series uses a unique ultra-low-mass, micro-miniature Alnico V magnet made to an exceptionally fine tolerance with a gold plated nickel tie-bar welded to the magnet to provide an earth path for vinyl static build up and stabilise the cantilever in unwanted vibrational modes. A strong one piece low mass Pocan body is used to hold the fixed parts securely in place including the high efficiency magnetic circuit incorporating finely etched mu-metal laminated to form the pole pieces around which are fitted two formerless coils of four thousand turns each to reduce the loss of high frequencies inherent in more conventional designs.
