The Hana cartridges have beautiful midrange reminiscent of a Koetsu. The Rega Planar 6 comes with the R330 tonearm, the multi-layer flywheel effect platter, and an external power supply. All of these contribute to a placid and relaxed analog sound and provides a wonderful platform for the Hana to bring fourth its signature silky and textured vocals and vivid instrument tonal colors.
We install the spacers and cartridge then re-box in original Rega box. If we are shipping the turntable to you, we encourage you to have or purchase a tonearm tracking force gauge because we remove the tonearm weight for shipping.
