Built in Japan by Audio-Technica, Voice by VPI: Goldy Dual Moving-Coil Phono Cartridge Plays with High Separation, Wide Responsiveness, Enticing Presence, and a Natural Midrange

The Goldy is another VPI - Audio Technica partnership product. Using the award winning AT-OC9 series as a base with VPI’s voicing, the Goldy is a line contact stylus on a boron cantilever. The Goldy has the same internal and dampening modifications as the Shyla cartridge in addition to other material changes as well.

"VPI's Goldy cartridge illustrates the potential subjective impact of what are, on the face of it, simple mechanical revisions. Naturally, Audio-Technica's 'donor chassis' is already in the top drawer, but VPI's tweaks have resulted in something of a giant-killer. The Goldy retains the tracking prowess and medium output of the AT-OC9 but adds a silkiness and refinement all its own. If you own a VPI deck, it's a slam dunk." - Adam Smith

"The design goal here, according to VPI brand president Mat Weisfeld, is as follows: 'When voicing the Goldy, as with the Shyla, our main focus was to hit the midrange while still having a strong punch on the bass and detail on the highs.” The Goldy also has similar internal and dampening modifications as the Shyla cartridge does" - Mike Mettler
