MP series Elements (cartridges) mounted in SME type shells


These are the same cartridges as the regular MP series, but these come mounted in a SME type shell, which are suitable for DJ style turntables like the Technics 1200 series.

MP stands for 'moving permalloy'. These Nagaoka models stand out as not just great value, but something special that offers a real generosity of sound and performance in all the aspects we see as being intrinsically analogue.

Being a permalloy magnet principle cartridge you can replace the stylus with another one when it is worn out for a reasonable cost.

Included in the box are accessories for mounting the cartridge in most headshells. You will find two sets of screws of approximate length 10mm and 13mm as well as two plastic washers and two bolts. Also in the box is a small screwdriver. Should you require screws of a different length we offer sets of screws in a larger variety. 

Finally 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. 

The models are:

● Nagaoka MP-100 H - 6,5 gram - 5,0 mV (5 cm/sec)
● Nagaoka MP-110 H - 6,5 gram - 5,0 mV (5 cm/sec)
● Nagaoka MP-150 H - 6,5 gram - 4,5 mV (5 cm/sec)
● Nagaoka MP-200 H - 6,5 gram - 4,0 mV (5 cm/sec)
● Nagaoka MP-300 H - 8,0 gram - 3,0 mV (5 cm/sec)
● Nagaoka MP-500 H - 8,0 gram - 3,0 mV (5 cm/sec)
