Goldring, introduces Ethos SE - a special edition of its award-winning Ethos model. Sitting at the very top of Goldring's range of moving coil cartridges, Ethos SE combines uncompromising engineering with unique new features to produce a cartridge of exquisite sound reproduction capabilities.

Thanks to a raft of exclusive and carefully engineered upgrades - including pure silver coils, low reluctance pole shoes and a black anodized, aircraft-grade aluminium body - Ethos SE sets entirely new standards in terms of detail retrieval, channel separation and low colouration. Even when judged against cartridges costing a great deal more, this new special edition cartridge delivers a totally immersive, thrillingly complete musical experience - which has always been the Goldring ethos.

Key Features:
  • New pure silver coils feature fewer windings with higher conductivity, reducing the effective tip mass and internal impedance of the pick-up for improved tracking and greater transient response.
  • Low-mass cross-armature core made from Swedish iron improves channel separation and produces a more realistic soundstage.
  • A vital line-contact diamond stylus features a narrow, low tip-mass, large contact-area that enhances high-frequency response and minimises distortion and colouration.
  • New low reluctance pole-shoes ensure smooth and extended frequency response via an exclusive process.
  • Low-resonance, aircraft-grade aluminium body is selected for its low density and superior rigidity.
