Lo-D MT-100
13,000yen(around the 1979 time)

It is man-month type cartridge which inherited the technology of high-class cartridge MT-202mkII, and was developed.

The good original of the lateralization of sound and the separation is carrying out Tip-of-the-Day pivot support scheme adoption at the supporting of vibration system.
Moreover, the samarium cobalt disc type magnet and the good original C type yoke of a generator efficiency are adopted as a magnetic circuit.

The Magnesium alloy head shell is adopted.
