Michael Osborn-san at Air Audio Service / HANA UK distributor has just forwarded us this wonderful information that HANA-Blue has got “Product of the Year Awards 2024/ Phono cartridge in “Stereonet magazine in UK (Australia) for your further ongoing powerful reference.
Following is their conclusive description.
“Hana is the most famous cartridge brand you’ve never heard of – as its parent company, Excel Sound, has been going for nearly fifty-five years, making OEM pick-ups for a welter of Japanese manufacturers. It’s only in the past few years that the Hana name has surfaced on the analogue scene, as its range of classy moving coils has wowed vinylistas. The Umami Blue is a beautifully built, high end, low output design using technology trickled down from the flagship Umami Red. It sounds sublimely sweet and extremely musically engaging – celebrating the beauty of vinyl.”
