The MP-500 has a lot of everything; it's tonally warm without going over the top, it has slightly soft but strong and tuneful bass and a lovely, delicate and finely resolved treble. In the midband, this cartridge bristles with detail, yet this isn't presented in a forensic or analytical way. Rather, it's sweet and supple, with a really good rhythmic flow. There's also a remarkable lack of surface noise.

Beautifully balanced... I'm transfixed by the sheer emotion of the recording. I'm especially drawn into those distinctive vocals... it seems to have more conspicuous spaces between the notes, with the proverbial 'inky black' silences.

A cathedral-like soundstage. Instrumental timbre is excellent; strings sound lustrous and there's almost a glow to violins... a living, breathing feel to the performance... briliiant all-round moving magnet... shames even some respected moving-coil designs.

Brilliant all-round performer.

One of the best MMs that money can buy.
