Eroica HX for all Phono MM Inputs

New High-Output-MC-Pickup Coming From Goldring

The new Eroica HX from English manufacturer Goldring is an MC cartridge designed for the MM phono input of your amp.

The English analog specialist Goldring recently presented the Eroica HX, the newest member in its moving coil cartridge family. As the successor to the award-winning H model of the Eroica range, this so-called "High Output" MC aims to make it easy to upgrade from an MM cartridge to a moving coil model. This stems from the fact that the Eroica HX provides a sufficient output voltage for the corresponding (MM) phono input, specified by the manufacturer at 2.5 millivolts at 1 kHz, 5 cm/sec.

In addition, as announced by Goldring, the Eroica HX carries a new pure-iron cross-armature design as well as ultra-fine enameled copper windings for higher performance and low crosstalk, a high-quality "Gyger II" diamond needle that is said to be able to pickup frequencies up to 50 kHz without distortion, and a housing made of the lightweight composite material "Pocan", which was selected for its "anti-coloration" properties. The Eroica HX is said to be compatible with all standard tonearms and will be available from mid-June for around 700 euros in Germany.
