Nagaoka MP110 review | What Hi-Fi?

An reasonably priced cartridge at just £62, the Nagaoka MP-One hundred ten tracks at a nominal 1.8g.

We found its sq. casing easy to suit and align, and from the outset our sample gave a shiny, instant sound that will paintings smartly in pepping up a lifeless device.

The MP-110 unearths a candy midrange, even if we might like some more bass weight to make stronger its gentle and breezy personality.

Treble needs extra refinement

The treble is also a marginally edgy and no longer relatively as delicate as some intently priced opponents.

Dynamically, this cartridge goals above its worth bracket, dealing with Scott Walker's syncopated Montague Terrace In Blue conveniently and being able to hold its personal towards pricier pageant.

Detail subtleties are also handled proficiently, and the vocals on the Dixie Cups' Chapel of Love possess an perception that's nice at this price degree.

For the cash, this cheap and supremely cheerful cartridge represents good worth, and those on a budget will have to hunt it down.
