The 2 mV output Hana EH is the higher output cartridge from the Hana E Series. This is high enough output that the cartridge will work well with entry level quality phono stages from Rega and Pro-ject in the $150-400 range. It will also work with the built-in phono stages from most entry level quality preamplifiers and integrateds.
Hana EH and EL moving coil cartridges represent the best way to upgrade from “starter” cartridges that typically come packaged with turntables. Weighing in at only 5 grams, and possessing great tracking ability, the Hana EL and EH cartridges feature a distinctive moss green body which houses a sophisticated generator with an aluminum cantilever, and synthetic elliptical stylus.
Hana cartridges by Excel represent the best materials, including alnico magnets, cross-shaped armatures, and proprietary manufacturing processes. Hana has excelled at creating MC cartridges noted worldwide for their sound and value, which retain their “musical magic” regardless of their phono stage pairing.
