Product Info

- Performance that really merits the word 'Extraordinary'

The new old stock Tonar 555 cartridge / Nagaoka JT-555 JT555 cartridge both use the same Ultra-Ex nude stylus and solid-black carbon cantilever. They are exactly the same except the latter was manufactured by Nagaoka under private label for Tonar. A photo of the Nagaoka JT555 cartridge is provided below. The Ultra-Ex stylus offers top performance for stereo to discrete four-channel reproduction, long playing life and clear tonal quality. The solid-black carbon cantilever with its very high rigidity and very low effective mass, faithfully transmits the most delicate movements of the stylus tip to the magnet. By combining the solid-black carbon cantilever with the Ultra-Ex stylus tip, the frequency response range has been widened to cover everything from the subsonic to the supersonic.

We bought these as a special buy for those who seek an exquisite sounding phono cartridge at a very affordable price. Limited quantity.

Please note: Customers who purchase will receive the Tonar 555 cartridge.
