High-performance entry model featuring a natural sense of unity. An affordable entry-level machine. It is orthodox and features a natural sound without exaggeration.
Nagaoka MP-100 is the entry level model of the Nagaoka MP series. It has the same cartridge body as the MP-110 and comes with a 0.6 mil conical stylus. One should not 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 over the quest for more end more high frequency details.
Nagaoka MP-100 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 when it is worn out for a reasonable cost. You can even upgrade to the boron cantilever stylus of the MP-200 for even clearer high fidelity.
