Description

Nagaoka only offers moving magnet cartridges. Fans of this technology like being able to replace the stylus and not having to use an MC preamp. Nagaoka has developed the new MP range to cater to audiophiles with exacting standards. The MP200 shares many features with its younger sister, the 150.

 It has a fairly vintage design, which is positive in this case. It looks like a Lego. The square design makes it easier to align on the headshell. It is extremely well crafted and is on par with competitor products. Nagaoka uses great powerful Samarium/Cobalt magnets and very high purity copper coils. The elliptical stylus is mounted onto a conical boron cantilever. This makes it very stiff and minimises resonance. The 4 mV output level makes it compatible with most built-in or standalone MM phono preamplifiers. The combination of its high compliance (20) and low mass (6.5g) means that it is also compatible with many different tonearm models with low and medium effective mass (Thorens, Dual, Lenco, Garrard, Pro-Ject, Rega, Linn, etc.). The stylus is naturally interchangeable.

 After the necessary break-in period, the MP200 boasts many of the qualities MC cartridges have to offer. Playback is spacious and open. The mids are present and detailed, without a hint of harshness, and works in perfect harmony with the precise but mellow treble. The bass is well articulated and dynamic. The response is relatively flat and neutral. As per usual with Nagaoka, this cartridge produces a highly enjoyable and musical sound quality. Surface noise is very low - almost non-existent, in fact. Our old Planar III and its famous RB300 produced quite amazing results.

The Nagaoka MP200 is an excellent cartridge that combines the qualities of certain Grado, Ortofon and Sumiko models. It is a great option for anyone looking to capture a highly textured, analogue sound. It also offers excellent value for money. Highly recommended.

Une cellule qui gagne a être connue

Bien montée sur ma vieille Sansui a bras coudé en alu elle fait des merveilles, tant sur les timbres, la scène sonore et les voix. Les basses sont bien présentes , les aigus filent haut sans traine, sans coloration la musique est restituée naturellement. Pas un bruit de surface ou de fond.
Elle crée une vraie émotion lors de l'écoute de certains vinyles. Merci a l'équipe de "Maplatine.com" pour leur conseils sur le choix qui s'avère pertinent.
