I own the Transrotor Merlo Reference, a modified Goldring by Transrotor. Was my primary for years until I bought the Benz LP. The Goldring does not do anything wrong and will bring you many hours of listening pleasure. I guess it does not bet much attention as it is not "lobbied" that much by the few distributors.
Music Hall is the US audio distributor for several (mostly British) brands including Creek, Epos, Whest, and *Goldring*.
The Goldring cartridge isn't just some placeholder to help sell the turntable. Using a cartridge from within its own organization, Music Hall was able to offer a package deal with more cartridge for the money.
In fact, I have read *lots* of good comments about Goldring carts and can't recall one negative one.
FWIW it's also one of Kevin Barrett's favorite carts for the Technics SL12x0 series over at kabusa.com.
