Nagaoka MP-150 H comes with a superfine polished elliptical diamond stylus tip on a low mass, hardened, tapered aluminum alloy Cantilever. The cartridge is premounted on a high quality headshell.

This midrange priced Nagaoka MP 150 H 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. 

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-150 is premounted on a headshell, no screwdriver and spare screws and bolts are included by Nagaoka as is the case with the MP-150 version without headshell.

Nagaoka recommends 30 hours of break in period in order for the MP150H 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.
