Dear Friends,

New Shipment just arrived once again !

Hana Cartridge from Japan lately has awarded as "Best Buy of the Year 2016" by HK 'HiFi Review' magazine issue 364 Oct 2016 and also highly feature by Stereophile, HiFi Choice, TNT Audio and many others.

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 “SH” and “SL” use nude natural diamond Shibata-stylus, capable of excellent high frequency response, giving you supreme transparency and excellent trackability.  Hana cartridges are produced by Excel Sound Corporation of Tokyo Japan, a long time OEM cartridge producer for 40 years.

Specifications :

Another 5 star review and recommendation award for the very affordable Hana MC cartridges has been published.
Neville Roberts, Hi-Fi Choice (UK) reviewing Hana SH/SL:
"...starting with Elgar’s Enigma Variations with Vernon Handley conducting the London Philharmonic Orchestra. My initial impressions are great. The sound of the violins achieves the perfect balance of being both bright and lively, yet smooth, which is certainly a tricky thing to get right. The overall performance is very good indeed... to check out how the Hana-SL handles female vocals, I play Barbra Streisand’s 'You Don’t Bring Me Flowers'. The song is brilliantly conveyed in the opening section and as the song progresses there’s no trace of brashness to her voice, just soaring energy. The Hana-SL gives a really sophisticated performance, which is very involving and refined... Both (Hana-SL & Hana-SH) are superb cartridges and are strong challengers to rival big-name brands at the price..."

HiFi World issue Feb 2016 has reviewed on Hana EL and EH.
Quoted from the review HANA EL is being rated as 5 Stars :-
OUTSTANDING- amongst the best.
VALUE - keenly priced.
VERDICT- A wholly tolerant cartridge that is smooth and engaging
FOR - musical engagement, romantic mids, bass, value for monty
AGAINST - nothing at the price
