Goldring 1006 Moving Magnet Phono Cartridge
The Goldring 1006 is an advanced moving magnet phono cartridge designed for turntable owners who want to achieve analog excellence at an affordable price.
This cartridge has an elliptical tip for improved high frequency clarity and a powerful magnet to ensure high sensitivity. The Goldring 1006 phono cartridge has a strong, one-piece molded body made from an ultra-rigid glass-reinforced polyester. All fixed parts can be held securely in place and the body can be tightly bolted to the head shell to create structural unity.
Its highly efficient magnetic circuit makes for a smooth and extended frequency response. As with all Goldring cartridges, the Goldring 1006 phono cartridge is rigorously tested at the factory to ensure optimum standards of performance and reliability.
How to replace your cartridge and set up your turntable
Put the cartridge up to the headshell and gently tighten the screws into the holes.
Then use the Allen key to tighten (but not over-tighten) the cartridge into place. To prevent damage, be careful not to knock the stylus guard or stylus
Then connect the wires from the back of the tone arm to the coloured connecting pins at the rear of the cartridge. Each wire is colour coded (red, white, green, blue). It is best to use tweezers or a pair of small pliers to connect them.
As they are very delicate, it is best to grab the wire by the connector to prevent damage. Ensure the wires are connected properly.
The next stage is correctly aligning the cartridge to the protractor. Gently put the stylus of the cartridge on to the crossover point of the protractor.
Holding the cartridge off the protractor, use the Allen key to gently loosen the screws. Once loosened you need to rotate the cartridge so that it is parallel with the lines on the protractor. When you are happy that they are parallel, you need to re-tighten the screws.
When tightened, place the stylus back on the protractor to confirm it still lines up.
Use the second chart to check that everything is parallel in both positions. When you are happy, ensure the screws are tight enough (but not too tight). Your cartridge is now correctly aligned.
