Hana MH Moving Coil Turntable Cartridge
Building upon the foundation of the critically acclaimed HANA sound, Hana introduce their new “M” Series deluxe model moving coil cartridge. The HANA-MH is the High output moving coil cartridge option, with Micro-line stylus profile.
This cartridge is designed to be used with a MM (moving magnet) phono stage, so without investing in a new moving coil step up transformer, or MC phono stage, the seductive sound of moving coils are available through your moving magnet phono stage.
This evolutionary new class leading model continues the HANA tradition by featuring higher specification parts, advanced materials, unique technical treatment and superior mechanical interface.
M Series Nude Microline stylus – Higher Specification Part
Befitting its name, the M Series uses a Nude Microline stylus, mimicking the cutting stylus and fitting more precisely into the vinyl groove. Thisenhances tracking to capture the most delicate musical details with better frequency reproduction, stereo imaging, and resolution.
High Purity copper wire – Higher Specification Part
Very high-purity copper wire is used for winding the M Series moving coils, offering greater clarity of sound for both low output ML and high output MH models. The ML features a new low impedance generator for optimized performance with a broader range of phono preamps
Delrin© cartridge body – Advanced Materials
The M Series cartridge body is injection molded from POM (polyoxymethylene), commonly know as Delrin©, a high tech polymer
with improved mechanical characteristics for better resonance damping, to reveal more low level information and enhance dynamic range.
Cryogenic Processing - Unique Technical Treatment
Cryogenic processing is Cold Annealing at near absolute zero temperature that restructures metals at the molecular level. Especially important in the Alnico based magnetic electro-motive circuit (cartridge signal generator). The M Series parts treated include the front yoke as well as center and rear components. The result is a more precise and controlled magnetic flux field for greater linearity and musical sound quality.
Threaded fittings and Brass Cap - Superior Mechanical Interface
Built into the M Series Delrin© cartridge body are metal threaded fittingsfor headshell mounting hardware, offering easier attachment and a superior mechanical interface for better bass and dynamics.
The Delrin© cartridge body also features an integral machined brass cap providing constrained mode layer damping and its heavier 9.5 gram weight provides expanded compatibility with a wider range of tonearms and turntables.
