Nagaoka MP 100 H is the headshell pre-mounted version of the entry level Nagaoka MP 100. It has the same cartridge body as the MP110 and comes with a 0.6 mil conical stylus. 

Don't underestimate the quality of a conical stylus. Many vinyl enthusiasts are into the powerful and present musical sound of a conical stylus and often prefer that instead of the quest for more end more high frequency details. 

Nagaoka MP100 is one of these high quality and open conical cartridges that can give you a fantastic vocal reproduction experience and offers musical clarity and expression beyond its price tag.

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. 

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-100 H is premounted on a headshell, no screwdriver and spare screws and bolts are included by Nagaoka as is the case with the MP-100 version without headshell.

Nagaoka recommends 30 hours of break in period in order for the MP100H 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.
