GOLDRING 1042GX-Phono cartridge

Product Code


This is a cartridge for the audiophile who demands the ultimate sonic performance from their system, together with the convenience of a user replaceable stylus. The 1042 uses a nude, natural-diamond stylus with a Gyger S profile. This is a revolutionary line-contact type which is shaped to more closely resemble the record cutting head than any previous design. The stylus profile is the main factor governing overall sound quality in a cartridge and the shape of the Gyger S with its 6 µm radius allows it to trace the smallest groove detail with complete fidelity. Mid-range tonality is incredibly accurate and precise with high frequency sibilance banished. The extended side wall contact of the Gyger-S diamond also gives the 1042 unsurpassed resolution of the fine groove modulations, producing an exceptionally detailed, smooth and musical sound. Frequency Response 20 Hz-20 kHz +/- 3 dB Channel Balance within 2 dB @ 1 kHz Channel Separation better than 25 dB @ 1 kHz Sensitivity 6.5 mV +/-1.5 dB, 1 kHz @ 5 cm/sec Static Compliance 20 mm/N Dynamic Compliance @ 10 Hz 10 mm/N Equivalent tip mass 0.45 mg Vertical Tracking Angle 24 ° Stylus Profile Gyger S Stylus Type Replaceable Load Resistance 47 kΩ Load Capacitance 150-200 pF Internal Inductance 570 mH Internal Resistance 660 Ω Cartridge Mass 6.3 g Cartridge Mass (inc. fixings) 7.6 g
