The E range "EH" and "EL" cartridges (same two High and Low output options as the "S" range) come with a synthetic Elliptical diamond styli, but nonetheless offer a highly competitive quality sound, referenced against similar priced cartridges.
The Hana EL cartridge has a synthetic Elliptical diamond stylus fitted to a high rigidity aluminum cantilever with cross-shaped armature, offering super transparency and excellent trackability. The body is manufactured from a composite low resonance plastic material in dark green. This competitively priced Low output moving coil cartridge offers great quality sound referenced against similar priced cartridges. The EL (Elliptical Low output) offers 0.5mv/1KHz output.
