About Goldenberg Audio
This is a notion that Goldenberg strives hard to follow, making use of age-old and extraordinary techniques, Goldenberg continues to assemble their cartridges piece by piece, with care and precision, as well as by hand.Alongside the many engineers and mechanical experts, a professionally trainer watchmaker also keeps an eye on the manufacturing process in Goldenberg’s glorious alpine studio.
The creators behind Goldenberg have invested time and energy into perfecting their moving-coil generator. It is therefore fully integrated into a complex yet exquisitely formed unit (the carrier). Alongside this, the magnet-circuit, as well as the transducer have been designed to produce a sensible output voltage (contributing to low self-impedence).
Each and every model is composed carefully and is comprised of a precise yet detailed diamond/cantilever combo. This matched up with the structure’s material allows for highly impressive sound playback and one that is harmonic as well as unified.
Luckily, for audiophiles and vinyl fanatics in Indonesia (and across the globe), at Phantom Audio, we stock all three of Goldenberg’s pristine cartridges…
According to Goldenberg, ‘The Maestro’ will: ‘take you one step ahead in analogue tracking technology’. Micha Huber and the makers behind Goldenberg have several years of experience in material sciences and how they influence the reproduction of sound. Therefore, in this model, the MC-generator also features a Micro-Ridge stylus tip, but this time it is set on a highly rigid ‘Sapphire cantilever’. It is then integrated into a ruthenium coated bronze structure (extra-heavy) which is housed within a pure gold-coated three-dimensional casing.
Whilst the Goldernburg line is more cost-effective, it still does well to maintain a high level of perfected ‘Swiss Quality’, and the products are finite, precise, and built from a deep understanding of tools and techniques.
The Creator - Micha Huber
Huber’s background is in the Swiss watch and machine industry. He worked for around 5 years with the likes of Andreas Strehler (and others) developing different types of watch movements. In his experience, he has built several well-known ‘watch movements’ part by part, some of which include:
- Moser & Cie Cal 321/341/342
- Harry Winston “Opus 7”
- Maurice Lacroix “Le Chronographe
After leaving the watchmaking industry, he decided to focus on developing tonearms. With a great interest in tonearms, since as early as around 17 years old. Huber’s goal was clear, he wanted to create a tangential tracking pivoted arm, and that’s how the ‘Thales Tonearm’ was born! His main innovation here was that he used a triangle-based geometry, as opposed to tetragon.
Since the success of his tonearms, CEO of HiFiction and Goldenberg, Micha Huber, has continued to create his own patented technology (monobloc-ceramic-transducer technology) and various other excellent cartridges and products.
This is certainly an audiophile to keep your eye on. He knows exactly what he’s doing, and we’re certain that the very best is still yet to come!
