The Nagaoka MP-500H is Nagaoka's top-of-the-line phonograph cartridge and offers the finest audio experience of the MP-series. It expertly extracts and reproduces with vivid, colorful and dimensional clarity what others miss. This cartridge plays your record with image solidity, detailed resolution and bass extension.

The MP-500H comes pre-mounted in Nagaoka headshell. It is mounted with screws of ideal length, washers and bolts, ready to put to use. For this reason no screw driver and spare screws and bolts are included by Nagaoka as is the case with the MP-500 version without headshell.

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.
