Hana SL Low Output Moving Coil Cartridge

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!

Elegant and powerful reproduction
Wednesday, 10 August 2016  | 

This shape naked diamond on aliuminiun requires exact setup then it gives that famed ' musicality' with a carefully balanced full dynamic heft and harmonic details throughout wide stage giving a correct ' natural' (rather than a showy) reproduction. 3 g of added weight on Rega arm gave it a resonance of 10 hertz ( compliance is perhaps 14cu UK spec) It works well in my bass tight line with standard 100 ohm ish SUT and valve phono.( Hana suggests 400 +). Fundamental bass and ryhthmns are correctly full and gives that authentic vinyl sound.All the musicians individual work is clearly delineated throughout ( if on disc). Noise is low. Conclusion? Makes me want to play my vinyl again and again and again. Love it.

Fantastic cartridge
Friday, 5 August 2016  | 

I have been using both a Dynavector 10x5 and Goldring Eroica L which has broken! After talking to AS they recommended this cartridge and I'm glad they did. It’s at a totally different level to the other two with better bass resolution more open and sweeter treble. I could go on but actually it just sounds right
