HANA Unami MC Cartridge Low Output


Condition: New

Shipping Time: Custom Order


“The Umami Red gives you the complete picture. It represents the top-end of Hana’s output, but goes toe-to-toe with some exceptionally rare cartridges with some very lofty reputations.”— by Alan Sircom, HiFi+

Auricle™ Cartridge body

The HANA-Umami Red exclusive Auricle™ body design, mimics the shape of
the human outer ear to rigidly support the “Open Air” Moving Coil generator. The
unique body shape is machined from A7075 aluminum, one of the strongest and
lightest alloys used in aerospace engineering. The Duralumin body features an
Ebony Wood inlay on its front facia to provide specific damping properties and
tapped mounting holes assure secure attachment to the tonearm.

Urushi Lacquer

The HANA-Umami Red body’s multi-layered Urushi lacquer finish originates
from the famous Japanese Makie-artistic tradition, adding to the rich sound
and optics. This classic and complex procedure consists of a black Urushi
painted undercoat, elaborate red-coloration process incorporating fine silver
powder, “hana” name printing with pure gold powder, and final lacquer
coating with multiple polishing steps.

Microline stylus
The HANA-Umami Red ‘nude’ natural diamond stylus is cut and polished
to mimic the cutting head stylus used to Master or “cut” all vinyl records.
This design offers the most precise fit into the vinyl groove, tracing the most
delicate musical nuances.

Boron cantilever
Boron, with a hardness comparable to diamond, was selected for the HANAUmami
Red to rigidly hold the Microline stylus. This solid Boron cantilever
allows the smallest audible details and micro-dynamics to be transmitted
without loss to the moving coil generator, capturing the artists’ intent.
Moving coil generator
The rare earth samarium/cobalt magnet material selected for the HANAUmami
Red generator offers the best electro-magnetic energy, a requirement
for this very musical design. Pure copper wires are expertly hand-wound onto
the classic square plate Permalloy armature.

Cryogenic processing
This ‘cold annealing’ process at near absolute zero temperature is used
to treat many of the components in the HANA-Umami Red generator as
well as the gold-plated signal output pins. The cryogenic process alters
the molecular structure of the materials, producing a transformative quality
similar to molecular gastronomy.
Wonderfully Musical
The Hana team is proud of their seamless integration of brilliant materials,
modern audio engineering, and traditional techniques. Master designer Okadasan
brings decades of experience to this design, applying the Umami concept
of synergy with the HANA-Umami Red to indulge your senses in the music.
