This HANA sound comes from superb design, engineering excellence and 50 years of experience by Masao Okada-san, the Excel Sound cartridge design Master.

Developed upon the foundation of the critically acclaimed HANA sound, Audio Magic introduces the new “M” Series deluxe model moving the coil cartridge. Available in high and low output versions, this evolutionary new the class-leading model continues the HANA tradition by featuring higher specification parts, cutting-edge materials, unique technical treatment and superior mechanical interface. The body is injection moulded from Delrin©, a high-tech polymer with improved mechanical characteristics for better resonance damping, to reveal more low-level information and enhance dynamic range.

It is also worth to be mentioned that very high-purity copper wire is used for winding the M Series moving coils, offering greater clarity of sound for the low output ML models. The ML features a new low impedance generator for optimised performance with a broader range of phono preamps.

Finally, the entire range of M-series uses a Nude Microline stylus, representing the cutting stylus and fitting more precisely into the vinyl groove. This enhances tracking to capture the most subtle musical details with better frequency reproduction, stereo imaging, and resolution.
