Nagaoka MP-500

£395.00£695.00

The Nagaoka MP-500 phonograph cartridge offers the highest musical and creative expression of the new MP series. Destined to become the benchmark by which most other MM cartridges are judged and already gaining something of a classic/cult status, the Nagaoka MP-500 even manages to challenge the supremacy of many high end MC cartridges at many times the price. Superbly musical, fatigue-free listening with refinement in spades thanks to an extended, well controlled and detailed HF response. It has superb authority too thanks to extended and detailed bass response. Redefining what’s possible with MM performance? We think so. If you’re in the market for one of the best MM cartridges going, then the Nagaoka MP-500 surely must be on your shopping list.
