Shiny brand new second hand things in my system today


#5137

Beat me to it!

Looking forward to your impressions Guy


#5138

Fair bit heavier than the other models


#5139

It’ll be the weight of that metal top. Presumably they’ve adjusted the suspension accordingly.

Still light compared to the likes of the Io & other metal bodied cartridges.


#5140

Be nice if all cartridge makers would put threaded holes in.


#5141

It’s a simple thing and it makes fitting carts SO much easier!


#5142

The only drawback I can see is if you manage to cross thread one of the bolts. It would be a delicate job to run a tap in an expensive cart.

You would probably have to send it to @J_B for him to fettle.


#5143

Ou est Le MONO ?


#5144

I’m booked pretty solid until the end of the year :grin:


#5145

I’ll get one next time.


#5146

Very much still a Hana but more so. Plenty of tone, more authority & more clarity but still without becoming forensic. So far so good.


#5147

It’ll be a busy demonstrator :smiley:


#5148

I did get 2 but yes, this 1st one can do the rounds.

Anyone who wants a try can pm me.


#5149

Yes please :slightly_smiling_face:


#5150

Oh look, the tape-tards are getting excited over a cartridge. :roll_eyes:


#5151

Better the cartridge, the better the tape copy :ok_hand:


#5152

If there’s a demo one, id like to give a try on the 1200gr please.


#5153

Me to. Please.
My new (old) SME 3012r could do with some options.


#5154

But is it better than a Denon 103?


#5155

Is anything?


#5156

too
