NAGAOKA JN-555 JN 555 JN555 EXPERT SUPER STYLUS

The Nagaoka JN-555 stylus private labeled for Expert Super uses the same Ultra-Ex nude stylus and solid carbon black cantilever as the original Nagaoka JN-555 stylus.

The Ultra-Ex stylus offers top performance for stereo to discrete four-channel reproduction, long playing life and clear tonal sound quality. The solid carbon black cantilever with its very high rigidity and very low effective mass, faithfully transmits the most delicate movements of the stylus tip to the magnet. By combining the solid carbon black cantilever with the Ultra-Ex stylus tip, the frequency response range has been widened to cover everything from the subsonic to the supersonic.

A Fine Cartridge for this Price

[playing two of these on Sansui SR636/Vincent PHO8 and Sansui FR5080/Sansui QRX6001 restored]

This seems to be a nicely made cartridge and stylus - and the stylus itself appears to be 'nude' as described and well shaped, under a low power microscope.
I initially set this to the top of the weight range indicated, for about 10 hours of playing, and then down to the recommended 1.3 grms.

At about 30-35 hours, this sounds very nice indeed - for classical records from several decades.
[Other cartridges I own: AT VM750SH, Ortofon Super OM/Shibata, Shure M91ED/Hi-Track and Vivid Line, Ortofon VMS/FineLine, Sansui SV40X/AT Shibata and Vivid Line]

Stylus for Signet MR 5.0ml cartridge

I spent more on this than a cartridge that I was looking at that came with a stylus (they all do it seems), but in the end it probably was the right choice as it's made my turntable go from a rather mediocre experience to a very good one. Now I'm much more compelled to put on my records...

Wonderful

I am so pleased I found a new needle for my turntable I thought they were no longer to be found thank you!

Christina was so very helpful. Appreciate all the service. Turntable works great now. thanks

Stylus Replacement

It's a good replacement, no problems. Would have liked the option for a matching stylus guard. Thank you.
