Hana SL Low Output Moving Coil Cartridge

The SL is a low output moving coil phono cartridge from Hana, offering a low-cost but high-performance solution to getting the most out of your vinyl collection. The 'S' aspect of its model number comes from the use of a nude natural diamond Shibata stylus. This stylus is attached to the cartridge via high rigidity aluminium cantilevers with cross-shaped armatures. This contributes to the cartridge's outstanding trackability and transparent sound reproduction.

The Hana SL despite being relatively new to the UK market, has already picked up a number of prestigious accolades amongst the hifi press, including 5 stars from HiFi Choice in April 2016. Along with HiFi Pig recommending this product in January 2016.
