The Nagaoka MP-500H is a top of the line moving magnet cartridge, which delivers the very highest levels of musicality and expression - expertly reproducing vivid, colourful and multi-dimensional clarity that other cartridges cannot. The MP-500H - master of the grooves is a truly stunning cartridge that will breathe new life into your record collection, and present them in a way you will never have heard before.

Featuring an exclusive super rigid body, the MP-500H produces superb fidelity and ultra resonance. A superfine line contact diamond stylus offers impeccable tracking and detail recovery, aided by a powerful samarium cobalt magnet. A low-mass high strength boron cantilever also aids the MP-500H with effortless tracking.

The time for the stylus replacement JN-P500 varies depending on how often and how it is used.  For general use at home the expected time is between 150-200 hours which by then the stylus will begin to wear and the tone quality starts to deteriorate. It is recommend to replace the stylus as early as possible so you can enjoy clear music  and cause no damage to the disc grooves.
