NAGAOKA MP-200 MP 200 MP200 PHONO CARTRIDGE

The Nagaoka MP-200 is a cartridge of musical nuances. On one hand, it is a very refined cartridge that offers an organic and fluid presentation with an engaging midrange reproduction of vocals and instruments, and superbly smooth highs. On the other hand, it expresses the fine detail, luster, dynamics and presence of music that are so often veiled and obscured by smooth sounding cartridges. It is this ability to engage music with its contrasts that makes the MP-200 so endearing, involving and extraordinary when compared to its price peers and beyond.

For many, this is the final cartridge to own given its affordability and return on musical enjoyment. For the few who seek beyond, the Nagaoka the MP-300 and MP-500 offer suitable alternatives for solace.

Not yet received. Be patient. It has to travel a long way.

Old Sanyo needle

Ordered it got the correct needle within a week listened to my records the next day. Great service here just wish I could have afforded to order a couple needles but I'm listening to my music again so until the next needle save up money. Thank you for great service!

The stylus I received works well and the service was great!

Just what I needed

I bought not one but 2 Shure styluses (styli?) out of fear they won’t be available next time I need a replacement. Hassle free and no complaints.

Fantastic Replacement

Bought for a pickering XV-15/625e cartridge that had a broken stylus. Easy to install, fits perfectly! Played a few different albums to get a feel for it, performs in the same range as my Ortofon 2M silver. Brush works great (there are reviews on other replacements that say take the brushes off/use the original but this works fine). Tracking set at 1.5 g.

Stylus for Pickering TL-3 TL3 cartridge

Undetermined

Turns out the green lead was broke on the cartridge. I removed the cartridge from the head shell to make repairs. Now it does not sound as good. It’s possible I don’t have the tracking adjusted properly.
