Product Info

LP GEAR NAGAOKA JT-555 TONAR 555 SET

Based on electrical and acoustical testing, Nagaoka claims the JT-555 offers "Performance that really merits the word 'Revolutionary'." We agree. It out details, out clarifies and so agile it catches the harmonics usually lost or masked by lesser though much more expensive cartridges. The downside is once they are gone, you won't find the cartridge anymore. We have less than 50 of these so procrastinate at you own risk.

The LP Gear premounted JT-555 cartridge with Ultimate Headshell offers excellence in sound quality and compatibility with turntables:
- LP GEAR® Ultimate half-inch mount headshell
- Aerospace alloy for tensile strength and low resonance
- SOAR HD5 headshell wires for exceptional sound quality
- Aligned length 52 mm for use with many tonearms
- Alignment adjustable for extra precision and compatibility
- Free alignment protractor
- Total weight of 16.7g with JT-555 cartridge is suited to more turntables and their tonearms. There is no need to change the counterweight.

Please note: Customers who purchase will receive the Tonar 555 cartridge since we have very few Nagaoka JT555 cartridges remaining.
