Product Description

Hana SL low output moving coil (MC) phono cartridge is a high-performance model with nude natural diamond Shibata-stylus. Using a nude natural diamond Shibata-stylus in the cartridge means the Hana SL Moving Coil cartridge has an excellent high-frequency response.


Also, the choice of materials has been done with care to ensure that the cartridge is sonically transparent. Therefore, the cantilevers are created from highly rigid aluminium and with the armatures being cross-shaped ensures the cartridge has a fantastic tracking ability a well as being acoustically transparent. Manufacturing the body from a plastic composite ensures that the resonance is kept to a minimum. The SL (Shibata Low output) offers 0.5mv/1KHz output.

    Simply brilliant cartridge. After about two months of use I can say they're warmer than Audio Technica, and more musical than Denon, more accurate than Shure. Not as forgiving as a Grado. Very transparent and detailed sound. Amazing price for that sounding. This cart worth much more. It's my best investment in vinyl playback.
