E Series Reviews

Hi Fi choice grouptest winner banner logo

The EH balances a rich, detailed, and refined presentation with impressive tonal accuracy….

is emotionally engaging and has a sense of air and space that is unusual at the price.

Perhaps just as importantly, the Hana manages to sound fun as well. …..

it rewards with an exceptional sonic performance!

Hi-Fi World, ‘outstanding’ review (5 stars + £)  

…you could say the EL looks at the bigger picture. Rather than focusing upon specifics,

it offers a possibly more engaging and flowing performance.

Both these [EL and EH] moving coil cartridges performed well and they bring genuine

advantages to any listening session at a low, low price. Terrific value for money.

The Audiophile Man

My first impressions of the EH was that it was a very smooth, easy going, performer. Turning to more dynamic fare, I played a recently re-issued Joy Division album, Substance and played the aggressive song, ‘Leaders of Men’, which was introduced by a rather insistent bass guitar. Lead vocals were articulated well via the EH. There was a lot of passion and energy infused into this area which could have invited slurring and blurring at times but the EH successfully resisted any such urge. More than that, the texture of the vocal delivery added to the emotive presentation which helped the ear to engage with the motive power of the music.

Good: musical engagement, romantic mids, bass, value for money 

Bad: nothing at the price

it offers a possibly more engaging and flowing performance.
