Goldring, introduces the latest member of its moving coil cartridge family, the Eroica HX. Joining the award-winning LX model in the Eroica range (‘Eroica’ translates as ‘Heroic’ in Italian), this high output, high-performance cartridge makes upgrading from a moving magnet cartridge to a moving-coil model straightforward. It achieves this by delivering a stunning moving coil performance from a moving magnet input and is one of the most obvious and cost-effective upgrades you can make to your vinyl audio system.

Key Features:

  • New, pure-iron cross-armature design for low crosstalk and reduced effective mass
  • Ultra-fine, enamelled-copper windings for higher output and correct impedance matching
  • Equipped with Gyger II diamond stylus that traces frequencies as high as 50kHz without distortion
  • Housing made from lightweight Pocan® composite material, chosen for its anti-colouration properties

The demanding nature of moving coil designs often prevents a clear upgrade path for vinyl enthusiasts. With the Eroica HX, turntable owners can enjoy the greatest gains in performance of an MC cartridge without the hassle of a system-wide upheaval – this cartridge delivers a stunning moving coil performance from a moving magnet input.

Arriving at a price comparable to that of a good moving magnet cartridge, Eroica HX is designed to work straight from the box, and to slot into your existing system with no fuss whatsoever. Simply install it in place of your old moving magnet cartridge, and enjoy improved dynamics, enhanced stereo imaging and controlled, distortion-free high frequencies immediately, with no additional equipment or any system adjustments required.
