Based upon all the positive comments I'd seen, I figured this wouldn't be too much a leap of faith. However, you never know until you try. I can happily report the MP-200 has wonderful synergy with my Technics SL-1700Mk2 table. Plays all vinyl well, but really makes you want to seek out clean, cared for recordings. As much as I liked my M97xe/Jico SAS, the Nag sounds a bit smoother, but still very detailed. I enjoyed the Nagaoka house sound so much, I ordered an MP-500.
