Review of the Hana ML Low Output Moving Coil Cartridge
The most apparent change of Hana ML is 1.5mm thick copper plate on top of the cartridge to improve the rigidity between the body and the headshell. You can see this plate in the picture above. Another difference that you won’t understand is that the ML doesn’t use the composite that used for the bodies of the SL. Instead, the ML made from a specialized thermoplastic that has resonance properties that are similar to vinyl. And, thankfully, the new body is also threaded, which makes it much easier to mount the cartridge.
