"...Hana Umami Red is a brilliant, shimmering star in today's moving coil cartridge universe. Most enthusiastically recommended."
“…solid “A” rating. The Ovation simply blew the tonearm off a Technics SL-1200G, when the direct drive table sounded significantly inferior.”
"...I think the sonic improvements justify the price as this seems less like production refinements and more like an evolutionary leap."
