Nagaoka MP-150 comes with a superfine polished elliptical diamond stylus tip on a low mass, hardened, tapered aluminum alloy Cantilever. 

This midrange priced Nagaoka MP 150 already has the matureness of the more expensive siblings. A rich warm and wide soundstage with punchy bass and natural sounding vocals.

Being a permalloy magnet principle cartridge you can replace the stylus with another one when it is worn out for a reasonable cost, and you can even upgrade to the boron cantilever  MP200 stylus for even clearer high fidelity. 

Included in the 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. 

Finally 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. 

Nagaoka recommends 30 hours of break in period for the MP150 cartridge.

The DaCapo Audio support team is happy to help you in choosing the right cartridge according to your needs, sound taste and budget.
