Nagaoka JT-80BK is the high-end version of two new cartridges in the Jeweltone (JT) series celebrating Nagaoka’s 80th anniversary. The suffix “BK” stands for”Black” which refers to the colour of this very well reviewed cartridge from Nagaoka that comes with a nude elliptical stylus on a extremely rigid boron cantilever.

Nagaoka JT80BK is built on the moving magnet principle and the sound can be described as very natural and open with a firm bass, an intriguing and full midrange and a delicate and musical high frequency. A very difficult to beat performance in this price range.

Being a moving magnet principle cartridge you can replace the stylus with a new one when it is worn out for a reasonable cost. This is a big advantage compared to similar priced moving coil cartridges. Nagaoka JT80BK will work very well in medium weight tonearm.

Nagaoka recommends 30 hours of break in period for the Nagaoka JT-80BK cartridge.

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