Hana Umami Red Reference Moving Coil Cartridge
When you experience a particular savoury deliciousness in food, it’s Umami; and Umami coupled with other specific ingredients meld together harmoniously to become more than the sum of their parts, many of the world’s tastiest dishes are assembled in this way.
Hana’s Master cartridge designer Okada-san produces this quality in sound when he selects materials and techniques to create the richness and harmony you will experience from his new HANA-Umami Red hand-built MC cartridge.
The new HANA-Umami Red high-end MC cartridge combines classic Japanese materials and techniques with modern audio engineering. The age hardened Duralumin A7075 machined body is Urushi lacquered and incorporates an Ebony Wood ‘Tuning Key’ providing rich harmonic overtones. The unique Auricle shaped body design which mimics the outer ear rigidly couples the “Open Air” MC generator, providing focus and transparency.
Combining classic materials with high tech processes, the cryogenic treated MC generator features a samarium/cobalt magnet with a pure-iron square plate former. The coil is hand-wound with a high purity 30-micron copper wire for an internal impedance of 8Ω and .4mV output. A Nude natural diamond Micro-line stylus is bonded to the .28mm solid Boron cantilever, to capture the very smallest musical details with great dynamics, stereo imaging, and resolution.
