Introducing a new line from Japan, Hana (which means “brilliant and gorgeous” in the original Japanese). Hana MC Phono Cartridges use high rigidity aluminum cantilevers, and cross-shaped armatures, providing a ‘brilliant and gorgeous’ sound at competitive price ranges for Moving Coil (MC) Cartridges of this quality.
Built entirely in Japan by master craftsmen, Hana moving coil phono cartridges are manufactured by legendary Japanese hi-fi company Excel Sound Corporation. Hana represents Japanese craftsmanship at its finest.
The Hana MC cartridges come with two different styli designs. The high performance Hana S range “SH” and “SL” cartridges use a nude natural diamond Shibata-stylus, capable of excellent high frequency response, giving supreme transparency and excellent trackability. This comes in two output options offering either High output 2.0mv/1KHz (SH) or Low output 0.5mv/1KHz (SL).
