HANA CARTRIDGES AVAILABLE IN NEW ZEALAND

Design Build Listen is proud to announce the arrival on of the new Hana Moving Coil cartridge range from established Japanese cartridge makers Excel Corp.

Introducing a range of Moving Coil Cartridges from Japan, 華 (or hana, which means “brilliant and gorgeous” in the original Japanese). Hana cartridges are produced by Excel Sound Corp from Japan, a long established cartridge making company who produce for many other companies. In picking the best bits for their own cartridges, HANA Phono Cartridges use high rigidity aluminium cantilevers, and cross-shaped armatures with the aim of providing brilliant and gorgeous sound. They have already drawn strong recommendations in the first European reviews.

The Hana “SL” uses a nude natural diamond Shibata-stylus, capable of excellent high frequency response, giving transparency and excellent trackability. Hana cartridges are available as ‘low’ and ‘high’ output versions. The latter being suitable for quieter Moving Magnet inputs but are only available to order.

These cartridges are available directly from Design Build Listen Ltd or ask us about a retailer near you (Retailer enquires welcome) for $595 for the elliptical stylus EL/EH models and $985 (inc GST) for the Shibata stylus equipped SL/SH models.
