Hana EH: The EH has no problem tracking any of the records played ... Coltrain's 'A love supreme' sounds wonderfully open, rymically engaging and tonally quite even.... Radiohead's 'OK Computer' can sound cluttered and confused with a poor cartridge, however, the EH maintains good order throughout.
Hana SL: .... the same tracks reveal more filigree detail and presence, Cotrains saxaphone is raspier and contains more emotion, while the overall presentation is much livelier and more finely etched.
Both Hana cartridges perform incredibly well at their price points ....
The £599.00 SL can hold its own against most cartridges priced around the £1,000.00p mark,
whilst the £389.00p EH is an audiophile bargain and a great introduction to MC reproduction.
High performance/price ratio
Musically fluid sound
Phono stage friendly (high output models)
Nothing at the price.
