The ancient Japanese symbol that represents Hana can be translated as “flower” and “brilliant and gorgeous”. Both meanings express the sonic character of Hana cartridges.
Excel Sound, the manufacturer, which used to make cartridges for other brands, produces all the major parts, from materials like aluminium for the cantilever, AlNiCo magnets, pure iron for the magnetic circuit, and 4N copper wire for MC wiring. The electrical sub-assembly is then packaged in an ABS plastic body by highly skilled artisans. Hana cartridges as a result offer astonishing price/performance value.
The Hana MH is a high-output moving coil with a Microline stylus, suitable for connection to a moving-magnet phono stage. In addition to the advanced stylus design, the MH has other features found in much more expensive high-end cartridges, including:
- Body made of Delrin©, a rigid plastic with significantly improved resonance damping characteristics.
- Cryogenic processing for key components such as the front yoke, and centre and rear elements of the magnet circuitry, yielding a more precise and musical sound quality.
- High purity copper wire for the coils, offering greater clarity and precision of sound.
- Captive threaded nuts for easy mechanical fixing to the tonearm headshell.
