Stock Availability : We have 2 in stock.

During the past several years, the HANA E and S Series moving coil cartridges have achieved global recognition for their world-class analog music reproduction at a previously unattainable price.

The HANA-ML is the low output moving coil cartridge option Low output option, with Micro-line stylus profile.  This cartridge is designed to be used with a MC phono stage or MC step-up device + MM phono stage.

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.

There are several advanced product features (Over E and S range HANA Moving Coil cartridges) that take the sound fidelity and musical enjoyment to new heights, continuing to offer a superb sound quality v. price at its higher price point.  

The stylus design is ‘Micro-Line’ (a shape that more closely follows the cutting head when the metal master is being produced), fitting more precisely into the vinyl groove to capture the very smallest details, offering better frequency reproduction and less distortion.

The Hana M Series cartridge bodies are made from black polyoxymethylene (POM) which is a very hard, extremely rigid and very strong thermoplastic. Excel uses a particular formulation of POM manufactured by DuPont that sells under the trademarked name ‘Delrin’, a material with much improved mechanical characteristics such as better resonance damping and hardness.

Parts such as the front yoke, center and rear components of the magnetic electro-motive circuit and wires are Cryogenic processed, this is a 'cold annealing' process at near absolute zero temperature, it restructures metals at the molecular level, resulting in lower sound distortion). The result is a more precise and musical sound quality.

Very high-quality copper wire has been selected for MH/ML moving coils, offering greater clarity of sound, thanks to its lower distortion of the musical signal.

There are captive threaded nuts for head shell fixing screws, these are built into the cartridge body offering easy mechanical fixing to the Tonearm headshell.

There is a gold plated copper resonance plate integral with the cartridge body, that further reduces distortion from vibrations.
