MP-500 Review
This cart represents the state of the art for moving iron. It's considerable investment is not lost on my ears. I'm coming from a Nagaoka MP-200 which I liked enough that I wanted to stay in the "family". It is important to calibrate VTA and azimuth correctly with the 500 as it is a micro-line stylus. I am impressed with its ability to track all of the records I have, effortlessly. Where there were sibilants before, the 500 plays through without upset. Tonal balances feel right and the "size/scale" of instruments sound is in correct proportion. That is something I'd not paid attention to with other carts. The grip on low frequencies is why I keep coming back to these carts. The music is fluid and realism is there. MC carts in this price range always seem to sound skeletal or ringy to my ear. None of that here. I think the MP500 just makes good sounding music, and I'm sticking with it. Turntableneedles made it easy for me to upgrade and were helpful, professional and courteous to work with on this purchase.
