Nagaoka MP-150 / MP-150H comes with a superfine polished elliptical diamond stylus tip on a low mass, hardened, tapered aluminum alloy Cantilever. This midrange priced Nagaoka MP-150 / MP-150H already has the matureness of the more expensive siblings. A rich warm and wide soundstage with punchy bass and natural sounding vocals.

It is available in two versions 

MP-150 - cartridge only without headshell

MP-150H - cartridge pre-mounted in a Nagaoka Headshell

Please select the desired version before adding it to the shopping basket.

Being a permalloy magnet principle cartridge you can replace the stylus for a reasonable cost when it is worn out. You can even upgrade to the boron cantilever stylus from MP-200 for even clearer high fidelity. 

A Stylus guard is included with the cartridge to protect it during transportation and when not in use. The Stylus guard is also sold separately should you ever find yourself in need of a spare.

Because the Nagaoka MP-150H is premounted on a headshell, no screwdriver and spare screws and bolts are included. 

Included in the MP-150 box are accessories for mounting the cartridge in most headshells. You will find two sets of screws of approximate length 10mm and 13mm as well as two plastic washers and two bolts. Also in the box is a small screwdriver. Should you require screws of a different length we offer sets of screws in a larger variety.
