Goldring 1042 moving magnet cartridge with Free Stylus Brush

The 1042 is a cartridge for the audiophile who demands the ultimate sonic performance from their system, together with the convenience of a user replacable stylus. The extended groove contact of its Gyger-S diamond gives the 1042 unsurpassed resolution of the fine groove modulations, producing an exceptionally detailed, smooth and musical sound.

The G1042 uses one of the most advanced Stylus-shapes going (Fritz Gyger S), together with a very lightweight Cantilever assembly. The Stylus is of the Line-contact type, which in plain English means that the Stylus much more closely resembles the shape of the Cutter, and thus can track higher frequencies better.

1042 - D42 stylus
