Review of the Hana ML Low Output Moving Coil Cartridge
"The performance of the Ultra Black II is not skewed by materials or shaped by pseudoscience..."
The Lumin X1 streaming DAC sits all by itself among the other Lumin products. It's the best product Lumin has made to date, by a wide margin.
The Hana M series cartridges cryogenically treated from the cantilever through high purity copper coils and out to the connecting pins, they also have Alnico magnets, luxuries not found in their more affordable counterparts. The Hana ML tracks at 2g and offers a 0.4mV output which should be sufficient for any MC stage but would require a step-up transformer if used with an MM phono amp.
A few weeks ago Ayre's new DXA and Streamer QX-8 was tested by HiFi & records magazine. "The QX-8 stands out in terms of sound with it's transparent, dynamic and tonally extremely finely graded presentation", the conclusion is. Author Marius Donadello also describes a feeling that we know only too well from listening with Ayre components: "The highly atmospheric style of the QX-8 puts me in a state of full attention while deep relaxation."
If you are into vinyl and haven't been holed up in an Ecuadorian embassy for the last few years, the name 'Hana' will probably not have escaped your attention. Japanese expert brand making high performance moving coil cartridges is always halfway to the stuff of legend, but the fact these cartridges don't cost a small fortune helps cement that reputation firmly.
“When playing the best live recordings, the Tellurium Q cable was able to convey the acoustics of the venue and vivid reactions of the audience in a very convincing way deepening the feeling of participation in the event….. I believe that for many people the Ultra Black II may be the end of their search for a still reasonably priced, high quality speaker cable”
While the approach a designer adopts in the making of a loudspeaker may be different to peers from around the globe in terms of components used, construction methodologies, differing priorities etc., engineering principles are a converging factor no matter the designer’s in the UK. Having said that, a designer’s own aural biases, his/her interpretation, may differ and therefore diverge a speaker’s sonic tuning, sometimes dramatically.
The Pursuit Perfect System audio reviewer Terry Ellis, could not resist expressing his amazement by the effect Tellurium Q Statement cables had on the sound on his review system from the first hour. Set of speakers’ cables, power cable and interconnect Statement is what he got for a review and managed to acquire the best of Tellurium effect. Massive improvement, he states, in lots of ways compared to how the system was sounding before. The incredulity he is keen to share could be recognised with ease in his words “… the sound now is on a different planet, hence my excitement…I am speechless. These Statements are unbelievable, unbelievable…”.
