A fortunate encounter with Excel Sound:


It was more than fortunate to have met Masao Okada-san, founder of Excel Sound almost 40 years ago and then in 2015, to have him develop the Hana line of moving coil cartridges for our exclusive export.
We are privileged to be partners with Excel Sound and without our long-standing friendship, Hana moving coil cartridges would never have been launched.


Meaning “Brilliant and Gorgeous” in the Japanese language, “華”, Hana moving coil cartridges are affordably priced and supply the most“Brilliant and Gorgeous” performance to audiophile customers
for their budget.


The UMAMI RED, the latest- and most prestigious model of the HANA line: our top model!
Urushi laquer, a boron cantilever and  nude diamond stylus, this model brings you thefinest analogue sound possible for a -still- affordable price.
With 40 years of Excel Sound know-how and expertise combined in a top of the line MC cartridge:


A Modern Classic in the making!
