Introducing the Goldring Ethos SE Moving Coil Cartridge: Elevate Your Audio Experience to New Heights

Experience audio perfection with the Goldring Ethos SE, a Special Edition masterpiece that redefines sonic possibilities. Crafted by world-renowned analogue audio specialist Goldring, the Ethos SE stands at the pinnacle of their moving coil cartridge range, seamlessly merging cutting-edge engineering with exclusive features to deliver an unparalleled auditory adventure.

Pure Silver Coils

The Ethos SE boasts Ag 9999 pure silver coils, featuring fewer windings for enhanced conductivity. This innovative design reduces effective tip mass and internal impedance, leading to improved tracking and greater transient response. The result is a cartridge that excels in detail retrieval, channel separation, and low coloration.

Low-Mass Cross-Armature Core

Utilizing a low-mass cross-armature core made from high-permeability Swedish iron, the Ethos SE enhances channel separation, producing a realistic soundstage. The unique cross-shape design reduces weight, improving high-frequency detail levels, minimizing distortion, and virtually eliminating mis-tracking.

Vital Line-Contact Diamond Stylus

The Ethos SE employs a vital line-contact diamond stylus with a narrow, low tip-mass and large contact area. This design enhances high-frequency response and minimizes distortion and coloration. Connected to the armature by a lightweight alloy cantilever tube, this stylus delivers an exceptionally pure audio experience.

Low Reluctance Pole-Shoes with GOL-1 Generator

The GOL-1 generator, a testament to Goldring's legacy, ensures a smooth and extended frequency response. Exclusive to the SE version, the pole shoes undergo a special process, enhancing metal permeability for a lower reluctance magnetic circuit. This results in a flattened and extended frequency response, particularly in the upper registers.

Aircraft-Grade Aluminium Body

Housed in a precision-milled 6082-T6 aircraft-grade aluminium body shell, the Ethos SE combines low density with superior rigidity. The anodized black finish not only enhances durability but also adds a touch of sophistication to the cartridge's aesthetic.

Immerse yourself in the Goldring Ethos SE's extraordinary sound reproduction capabilities, offering a complete and thrilling musical experience
