For their 80th anniversary, Nagaoka have launched two new MM cartridges in the Jeweltone series: The Nagaoka JT-80BK (Black) and the JT-80LB (Lapis Blue).
The Nagaoka JT80BK uses a boron cantilever for outstanding stiffness and light weight. A solid elliptical needle brings delicacy in the high range and good sound balance from the low range.
Nagaoka is a formidable name in the world of phono cartridges. In fact, Nagaoka styli are still used by many world renowned companies under their private label. The company offers an impressive range across budget lines for every need. The precision craftsmanship and stringent quality control sets Nagaoka apart from all of its competitors.
We carefully set up every turntable and cartridge we sell. So if you're new to turntables or have decades of experience, you know you'll be getting the most enjoyment from your system. You can be safe in the knowledge that you can take your turntable home, plug it straight in and start enjoying good music without any worry of something being setup incorrectly.
