MP-200 is a cartridge of musical contrasts. On one hand, it is a very refined cartridge that offers an organic, fluid presentation with an engaging midrange reproduction of vocals and instruments, and superbly smooth highs. On the other hand, it retains the detail, luster, dynamics and presence of music that are so often buried and attenuated by smooth sounding cartridges. It is this ability to engage music with its contrasts that makes the MP-200 so endearing, involving and extraordinary when compared to its price peers and beyond. For many, this is the final cartridge to own given its affordability and ROME (Return On Musical Enjoyment). For the few who seek beyond, the Nagaoka the MP-300 and MP-500 offer suitable solace.
The MP200 is a great cartridge for the money. It sounds somewhat laid back, but right across the spectrum of coherence, homogeneity, micro detail and dynamic power though. Again, the bass is turned slightly fat, but it is not smeared and all layers of the bass are fine to follow. The MP200 excels in transparency and realism. If one wants to be better, then one will have to be financially serious about the bridge. In this price segment a really powerful reproducer. Audio Review
