Description

The Hana MH cartridge has several advanced product features (Over E and S series HANA high output Moving Coil cartridges) that take the sound fidelity and musical enjoyment to new heights, continuing to offer a superb sound quality v. price at its higher price point.

Moving Coil sound quality through a Moving Magnet (MM) phono stage.

The ‘Micro-Line’ stylus design (shaped like the cutting head when the metal master LP is being produced), fits precisely into the vinyl groove to capture the very smallest details, offering better frequency reproduction and less distortion.

The Hana M Series cartridge bodies are made from black polyoxymethylene (POM) which is a hard and extremely rigid, low resonance thermoplastic manufactured by DuPont under the trade name ‘Delrin’. There is a gold-plated copper resonance plate integral with the cartridge body that further reduces distortion from vibrations.

Very high-quality copper wire has been selected for MH/ML moving coils, offering greater clarity of sound, thanks to its lower distortion of the musical signal. Parts such as the front yoke, centre and rear components of the magnetic electro-motive circuit and wires are Cryogenically processed, this is a ‘cold annealing’ process at near absolute zero temperature restructures metals at the molecular level, resulting in lower sound distortion.  The result is a more precise and musical sound quality.

There are captive threaded nuts for head shell fixing screws, these are built into the cartridge body offering easy mechanical fixing to the Tonearm head-shell.

The MH (Micro-Line High output) offers 2.0mv/1KHz output.

2 year guarantee and a ‘new for old or damaged’ replacement service.
