Well I bought a new Goldring E3 today and I installed it as per the Manuel says, used a scale for tracking weight (2.0g) and a protractor for alignment.

 

In the middle of the first album I decided to play the stylus broke and collapsed onto the record. Not sure what happened, if I did something or if it’s a faulty stylus. 
 

have you guys ever had a similar experience or know what might of happened?

 

cheers

Goldring have VERY fragile cantilevers, I have fixed a few of them. My guess is you bumped it down onto the record or made a mistake setting the tracking force and set it too high. Arm need to be floated so it just hovers over the record (this is zero point) then dial in 2g. 

I really doubt they will exchange that for you. I can repair it if you need, PM me if I can help.
