It seems all the rage everywhere.

Anyone using them with Rega Turntables? Do u use spacers to lift the arm height?

just read this from Audio Basic FB post.



HANA has launched the latest HANA M Series deluxe model MC Cartridges.

This evolutionary new class leading model continues the HANA tradition by featuring higher specification parts, advanced materials, unique technical treatment and
superior mechanical interface.
Excel Sound manufactures all the major parts, producing affordable cartridges with an excellent sound quality. Specialized tooling improves the price/quality ratio, with manufactured parts designed for maximum
performance and consistency. Excel’s experienced craftsmen skillfully handassemble all the parts into an excellent finished product, producing the consistently “Brilliant and Gorgeous” HANA sound.

- M Series Nude Microline stylus – Higher Specification Part:
Befitting its name, the M Series uses a Nude Microline stylus, mimicking the cutting stylus and fitting more precisely into the vinyl groove. This enhances tracking to capture the most delicate musical details wit better frequency reproduction, stereo imaging, and resolution.

- High Purity copper wire – Higher Specification Part:
Very high-purity copper wire is used for winding the M Series moving coils, offering greater clarity of sound for both low output ML and high output MH models. The ML features a new low impedance generator for optimized performance with a broader range of phono preamps

- Delrin© cartridge body – Advanced Materials:
The M Series cartridge body is injection molded from POM (polyoxymethylene), commonly know as Delrin©, a high tech polymer with improved mechanical characteristics for better resonance damping, to reveal more low level information and enhance dynamic range.

- Cryogenic Processing - Unique Technical Treatment:
Cryogenic processing is Cold Annealing at near absolute zero temperature that restructures metals at the molecular level. Especiallyimportant in the Alnico based magnetic electro-motive circuit (cartridge signal generator). The M Series parts treated include the front yoke as well as center and rear components. The result is a more precise and controlled magnetic flux field for greater linearity and musical sound quality.

- Threaded fittings and Brass Cap- Superior Mechanical Interface:
Built into the M Series Delrin© cartridge body are metal threaded fittings for headshell mounting hardware, offering easier attachment and a superior mechanical interface for better bass and dynamics.
The Delrin© cartridge body also features an integral machined brasscap providing constrained mode layer damping and its heavier 9.5 gram weight provides expanded compatibility with a wider range of tonearms
and turntables.

We have now reached a new dawn for HANA brilliance with the M Series deluxe model moving coil cartridges. The Hana ML (low output) and MH (high output) options represent the further evolution of the “Brilliant and
Gorgeous” quality that has earned HANA its worldwide reputation as we aspire towards affordable perfection.

Wonder how much will it cost.

Thanks bro...had seen this, However couldn't conclude.
This link says Rega height is 14mm, while many other sources say its 15mm. So if it is indeed 15mm, it is very subjective whether to use a spacer as Hana is 16mm. Using a standard 2mm spacer would flip from 1mm too low to 1mm too high. 1mm spacer not common, although heard about some plastic ones

Was quoted $1500 last week.

If you can bring your table down, installation provided FOC.

Forte S with OL Illustrious 12" tonearm. Wait till I switch to another spare arm using SME type detachable headshell then I may try comparing.
