Dear Air Audio,
An update on the Hana SL. It’s fantastic.
Not only is it better all round than my Transfiguration Spirit MK 111 which to be fair is getting on and the Hana is new, but the really impressive part is the surface noise - or lack of it. It is so quiet. The stylus ploughs through old records, with minor imperfections, as if they were new.
Discs that were previously difficult on the ear such as piano and violin sonatas are a joy to hear. Vocals become real words, female sibilance is absent and the sound-stage is as wide as my smile.
Many thanks to Air Audio and to Hana.
