Goldring Legacy Series
To ensure a record cartridge reproduces an accurate transcription of the record groove, the cartridge components must be rigidly mounted to the tone arm, whilst simultaneously allowing the tiniest movements of the diamond stylus to be transmitted, via the cantilever, to the sensing coils. The Legacy boasts an ultra low resonance magnesium metal body which is both very light and extremely strong. For convenience and rigidity, it has threaded inserts allowing the cartridge to be easily mounted and accurately aligned into the headshell. The stylus is a very low mass 'Vital' fine line diamond, which is highly polished and gives extremely low distortion. To maintain rigidity, this is attached to a hard alloy cantilever which transfers the maximum level of detail from the diamond to the coils; the latter are hand wound using only the highest purity copper.

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
