Introducing a new line from Japan, Hana (which means “brilliant and gorgeous” in the original Japanese). Hana Phono Cartridges use high rigidity aluminum cantilevers, and cross-shaped armatures, providing you with brilliant and gorgeous sound. Hana cartridges are produced by Excel Sound Corporation of Tokyo Japan, a long time OEM cartridge producer. The Hana Series has been developed with significance placed on ease of use and set-up, as well as high performance reproduction. Hana Cartridges' highly rigid aluminium cantilever are assembled with crossed armatures to reproduce dynamic sound!

Following the recent reviews and talking to local dealers it was decided to take a gamble on the Hana cartridge. At the price the gamble was a low risk one and did not disappoint! the Hana takes a detailed but laid back approach which particular suites good pressings although a run though no less than three test records proved it to be a excellent tracker!The cartridge gives the impression of reigning in the music, not letting things run away and get out of hand.A rocker it aint but it suites the music I want to "listen" to! will keep the P2/Clearaudio Aurum combo on standby for the pop/indie/rock charity bin finds!
