Goldring 600

Variable-Reluctance Hi-Fi Pick-up Cartridge

Goldring 600


The Goldring 600 is designed to give the highest quality of reproduction from transcription, standard and microgroove records.

The two styli are located on opposite sides of the cartridge case, one being intended for use on 78rpm records and the other on microgroove records, and a simple mounting mechanism enables the cartridge to be rotated through 180 degrees in order to bring the correct stylus in position on the record.

The model 600 is the first British variable reluctance cartridge designed specifically around a diamond stylus.

This results in a considerably reduced dynamic mass because there is no necessity to provide for stylus replacement.

To match the phenomenally low dynamic mass the compliance has been substantially increased resulting in a flat frequency response from 20 to 20,000 cycles per second.
