The Elite is an ultra high-performance low-output moving coil cartridge which incorporates Goldring's most recent design features. These include new magnetic circuitry, an ultra-rigid Pocan® body and a Neodymium magnet.
The Elite incorporates a Gyger S line contact stylus, providing maximum groove information retrieval and an outstandingly smooth and extended response. Optimum damping on both channels is achieved by symmetrically winding the low-mass armature.
Silver wire is used for the coils, which supplies much higher definition than is found in standard record cartridge construction.
The Elite represents the very best in British audio technology and design.
