Nagaoka MP-200 has many of the top of the line MP-500 virtues. It offers an organic, fluid presentation with an engaging mid-range reproduction of vocals and instruments. Nagaoka MP-200 retains the detail, luster, dynamics and presence of music that are so often buried and attenuated by other smooth sounding cartridges. 

Nagaoka MP-200 manages to provide an amazingly rich and warm mid range for jazz and vocals while still providing the detail and dynamics across the spectrum and it is not just another "warm sounding" cartridge

Like the bigger siblings Nagaoka MP-200 is an advanced technology cartridge built on the moving permalloy principle.

It is available in two versions 

MP-200 - cartridge only without headshell

MP-200H - cartridge pre-mounted in a Nagaoka Headshell

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

When the stylus is worn out you can replace it with for a reasonable cost.

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-200H is premounted on a headshell, no screwdriver and spare screws and bolts are included by Nagaoka as is the case with the MP-200 version without headshell.
