Awesome Cartridge!

Because of the price, I looked at the MP-200 as out of reach. So I sold a bunch of stereo gear that I hadn’t used in years and bought the Nagaoka MP-200. Now I’m kicking myself for having waited so long to purchase one. I’m hearing details and harmonies in my LPs that I have never heard before. I’ve had other cartridges with fancy line contact stylus and yet the MP-200 still gets more details from my records. Note it took several attempts to get the MP-200 properly aligned on my turntable (Music Hall MMF 1.5). It was well worth the extra effort to get it aligned right. Once the cartridge was locked into proper alignment, the music just bloomed. But the alignment must be spot-on to get great results. If you’ve never installed and aligned an aftermarket phono cartridge before, recommend having it done for a pro-shop. Happy listening!

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.

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.

Great Service

Sorry, but it isn't the correct one for my turntable. There's no way for it to fit. ;-(. That wasn't your fault. We went by the number on the machine since I didn't have the original. But you offer a great service and the shipping was fast. I may try again later. Thanks.
