Hana Umami Moving Coil Cartridge


Categories: ,

The HANA-Umami Way

The HANA-Umami Red high-end moving coil cartridge combines brilliant
materials and classic Japanese techniques with modern audio engineering.
Ebony wood, rare-earth magnets, precision-cut diamond, high-purity copper
wires, Urushi lacquering, and CNC machined Duralumin synergize under
the vision of Hana designer Okada-san.
The synergistic relationship in MC generators between magnet, armature,
and coil windings is a critical aspect of outstanding cartridge design; and
like a signature dish at a Michelin 3-star restaurant, every element and detail
working in concert results in a memorable and emotional experience.
All the major parts in a HANA-Umami Red are manufactured in house by
Excel Sound with its rich history spanning over 50 years. Excel’s highly
trained craftsmen skillfully hand assemble the HANA-Umami Red ensuring
an intensely musical experience furthering the HANA “Brilliant and
Gorgeous” sound quality.
