The HANA-Umami Blue high-end moving coil cartridge from Excel Sound’s Master cartridge designer Maseo Okada-san uses special materials, classic Japanese techniques, and modern audio engineering.
The HANA-Umami Blue cartridge follows in the Hana “Brilliant and Gorgeous” tradition of providing the listener with sublime enjoyment. Embodying the true sense of synergy, the HANA-Umami Blue combines the essential ingredients of the HANA-Umami Red with the ALNICO based generator of the HANA ML.
The HANA-Umami Blue incorporates the AuricleTM body design, unique and exclusive to our Umami series. CNC machined from Duraluminum, it uses a special Melamine Thermosetting Process (MTP), enameling the body with a brilliant blue glossy finish. Sharing other key Umami Red ingredients, including the precision-cut Microline diamond stylus, Boron cantilever, and high-purity copper wires, the Umami Blue synergizes these specialized parts with the ALNICO magnet-based generator used in the Hana ML.

• “Auricle” open-air body design machined from Duraluminum A7075 • MTP enameled finish with POM inlay
• Microline stylus with Boron cantilever
• ALNICO (aluminum / nickel / copper) magnet
• Cross-coil core with high purity copper coils
• 8Ω Coil impedance with .4mV output
• Cryogenic treatment of key generator parts and output pins
