Product Description

Hana Phono MC Cartridge S Series. Redefining what a Audiophile can Expect from under $1000 Phono Cartridge. Rave Reviews. Made in Japan.

At True Audiophile.

"The Hana (EL and EH) get a solid recommendation for their $475 price point." -- The Absolute Sound 2017 Full Review

“Highly musical…records were effortlessly engaging.” – Stereophile

“A first -class MC cartridge” – STEREO (Germany)

“Remarkably smooth frequency response…terrific value for the money.” – HiFi World (UK)

“Details are realistic and revealing…maximum definition.” – Haute Fidélité (France)

“In the same class as a cartridge costing 10x the price.” – TNT Audio (Italy)

A quest to save lower end TT owners from themselves and dealers who will show them whatever at whatever price without concern for the performance, we continually listen and search. The Hana series E and S are thrilling and insane for what they deliver for very little investment -- TA

The Hana Company has been making superb phono cartridges for over 45 years in Japan. In that time they have perfected beautiful reproduction without a price penalty. Probably the finest MC carts for their price.

The Hana SL and SH models, distinguished by their black body, provide tighter channel balance, greater channel separation, and improved high-frequency extension compared to their EH and EL counterparts. The SL and SH models also feature an upgraded Shibata stylus.

Hana cartridges by Excel represent the best materials, including alnico magnets, cross-shaped armatures, and proprietary manufacturing processes. Hana has excelled at creating MC cartridges noted worldwide for their sound and value, which retain their “musical magic” regardless of their phono stage pairing.

The Hana company has been around for 45 years in Japan. So it's not surprising they developed MC cartridges that are claimed by the press as redefining entry-level cartridges. Raved about by the press not only in America but in Europe, all agreed these cartridges produce like others 10x their price. Excellent upgrades to your turntable without a penality of price. True Audiophile is dedicated to providing people with music playback that is as stunning as it is an incredible value at every price point.
