The?Elan?has been specifically designed to cater for the demanding audiophile on a budget and, as such, is capable of remarkable results. The cartridge has a rigid body and fully enclosed mounting lugs and represents the most versatile low-cost cartridge choice av

  • The E Series is designed to capture this experience when used with all medium to high mass tonearms found on the majority of the budget to medium priced turntables. This is achieved through the use of our Magnetic Duplex Technology and Goldring Expert Adjustment.
  • The E1 cartridge, the first in the range, utilizes a carbon fiber reinforced cantilever with a bonded, spherical (0.6 mil) stylus with a round shank. Carbon is an effective alternative to more premium aluminum or boron materials, producing comparable results in most entry-level hi-fi applications.

Magnetic Duplex Technology?

  • All cartridges in the range feature Magnetic Duplex Technology?-a ?dual magnet? generator assembly which more accurately traces the record groove providing better stereo separation and a more involving and musical sound stage.

Expert Adjustment

  • The E-series cartridges have been designed to allow micro-adjustments to be made during production using a special adjustment screw.
  • This means the cartridge can be safely installed in a typical turntable because the angle that the stylus makes with the record surface has been pre-set.
  • The result is an optimized channel balance with zero degrees of horizontal tracking adjustment required. This ensures consistent and reassuring performance for the life of the product.


  • Featuring spherical styli with a choice of cantilevers, the E1 and E2 models are ideal as an upgrade to any budget, pre-fitted or obsolete cartridge.
  • The E3 model with its re?fined super elliptical stylus is a worthwhile upgrade for those wishing to squeeze even more information and detail from the record groove.
