Goldring G-900

Stereophonic Phono Cartridge

Goldring G-900


The Goldring G-900/IGC uses a unique, computer-designed, van den Hul stylus with a minor radius of 3.5 microns and closely approximates the shape of the original recording cutter.

It's audible advantages are greater definition of detail, improved stereo image, low intermodulation distortion and low record and stylus wear.

The G-900/E was designed for use in the widest possible variety of pick up arms and has a lower compliance than other cartridges in the G-900 range.

The use of a more powerful magnet increases sensitivity, and to keep cost to a minimum the stylus assembly is fitted with a bonded elliptical diamond.
