Killer combination LP Tunes premounted MP500

I bought the pre-mounted Mp500 and WOW right out of the box it sounded great. VTA is adjusted top of cartridge plane with record down force 1.56 grams. But after about 20 to 30 hours the sound stage became so much better. I am re discovering my record collection. I liked the ortofon 2M Black too but this is my preferred cartridge. I listen to Rock, chamber music and full orchestra, all are sounding great to my ears.

Highly recommended.

LP Tunes Nagaoka MP500 Pre-mount

As posted by a previous reviewer, I found that the headshell is angled a bit uphill, so I had to compensate by raising the tail of my SME tonearm a bit. With just a touch of twist of the cartridge, it lined right up on the protractor and cartridge tracking is excellent. Sonics of the MP-500 thus far are excellent.

JICO replacement Stylus for Toshiba SL-5 turntable

Cheapest True Mono Cartridge around

Great cartridge which significantly reduces the surface noise of my 78s as compared to any stereo or mono strapped/ summed stereo 78 cartridge. Well worth the money. Should also accept any Grado stylus so I believe it can also be made to play 33/34 mono records with the appropriate stylus.

Best phono cartridge yet!

I’ve owned dozens of phono cartridges, many of them far more expensive than the VM540ML. Honestly had this been the first phono cartridge I had purchased, I’d have no reason to look any further. You cannot go wrong with the VM540ML. It really is that good. Exceptional clarity and detail. You’ll hear music you’d never heard before on your records. The treble and bass are perfectly balanced while the midrange sings beautifully. Also the ML stylus is known to last well over 1,000 hours of playing time, whereas elliptical stylus only lasts 200-300 hours. Seriously, this is a great cartridge without peers, be it MM or MC, the VM540ML is “the best of the best”! Happy listening!
