Nagaoka JT-80LB (Lapis Blue) MM Phono Cartridge (new!)
In 2020 Nagaoka celebrated its 80th birthday. To celebrate this anniversary, Nagaoka introduced two new MM pickups in the Jeweltone series: the JT-80BK (Black) and the JT- 80LB (Lapis Blue).
Both pickups have been developed from scratch and embody the design of future Nagaoka pickups. Both have threaded bolt holes, a welcome relief at installation time.
The JT-80LB (Lapis Blue), featuring a shiny blue underside, is the basic model of the series and has an aluminum cantilever with a bonded elliptical diamond, and a very competitive selling price.
