Nagaoka MP-200 has many of the top of the line MP-500 virtues. It offers an organic, fluid presentation with an engaging midrange reproduction of vocals and instruments. And 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 MP200 is an advanced technology cartridge built on the moving permalloy principle.

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

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 in order for the MP200H to deliver its best.

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