The Hana SL is a “cartridge for all seasons” ... that works well with all musical genres. No wonder it’s become such a popular “crowd pleaser”

Discs that were previously difficult on the ear ... are a joy to hear. Vocals become real words, female sibilance is absent and the sound-stage is as wide as my smile.

The level of transparency generated by these [Hana SH,SL] Shibata Cartridges at this price point is something to admire.

The Hana cartridges are a delight. Perhaps they may eventually become the cult go-to that the Denon DL103 currently is (and isn’t) for discerning audiophiles on a budget – they certainly deserve to.

I could live with the Hana... If tomorrow all the other cartridges I had disappeared I would be quite happy to continue listening. I wouldn't feel short-changed, and though I might miss certain things they wouldn't 'bother' me so much. No other cartridge under 1500 Euro has passed this test. That the Hana is well below this limit is quite an achievement.

The Wand Plus and Hana EL pairing transforms my turntable into a musical appliance with changed-for-the-better character.
1st and 2nd out of 9

Both [SH and SL] are superb cartridges and are strong challengers to rival big-name brands at the price.

I see a bright future for the new Hana brand, its excellent price to quality ratio should ensure that.

What immediately impressed me with both cartridges was the very low surface noise and how quiet they were overall.
