Goldring Eroica LX Cartridge

The Eroica LX is a true audiophile moving coil cartridge which features an advanced pole shoe design using a powerful rare earth Neodymium magnet. This unique construction allows a shortened magnetic path, which helps reduce the amount of iron in the record cartridge, keeping the weight down to just 5.5 g. Rigidity is also of prime importance and the Pocan body of the cartridge enables it to be clamped solidly to the headshell, keeping energy losses to an absolute minimum. This cartridge uses a Gyger II line contact stylus with a low output which means it must be used with an amplifier which features a dedicated moving coil phono input. The Eroica LX offers an exceptionally high standard of performance and reliability.

How to replace your cartridge and set up your turntable

Step 1
Put the cartridge up to the headshell and gently tighten the screws into the holes.

Step 2
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

Step 3
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.

Step 4
As they are very delicate, it is best to grab the wire by the connector to prevent damage. Ensure the wires are connected properly.

Step 5
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.

Step 6
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.

Step 7
When tightened, place the stylus back on the protractor to confirm it still lines up.

Step 8
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.
