Hana Shibata Phono Cartridge

When an OEM house distributes their own brand, they reserve their best efforts for themselves and Excel is no exception. Hana, translated as “brilliant and gorgeous” represents Excel’s best materials including alnico magnets, cross-shaped armatures, and proprietary manufacturing processes. They have excelled at creating MC cartridges noted worldwide for their sound and value, which retain their “musical magic” regardless of their phono stage pairing. Shibata High(SH) and Low(SL) The Hana SL and SH models, distinguished by their black body, provide tighter channel balance, greater channel separation, and improved high-frequency extension compared to their EH and EL counterparts. The SL and SH models also feature an upgraded Shibata stylus.

Clearaudio Concept MC Phono Cartridge

The new clearaudio Concept MC cartridge is the entry level into the clearaudio MC cartridges line and is a perfect match with the Concept turntable. The cartridge body is made out of an innovative, high-dense Aluminium-Magnesium alloy, which is additionally coated with a ceramic layer to minimize resonances.The Concept MC assures an extremely strong homogeneous magnetic field and perfect linearity through its hand-selected high-performance magnets. To guarantee the optimal tracking, the clearaudio Micro Line diamond finds its place on the Bo-ron cantilever. This cartridge achieves the highest requirements of each record lover and ensures through its fine signed and dynamic sound impression, through the complete frequency-response-characteristic.


The M97xE is a superb smooth-sounding phonograph cartridge designed to provide long hours of undistorted listening, without fatiguing the ear. Its highly precise tracking ability and flat frequency response are made possible by Shure's unique Type II low-mass thin-wall aluminum alloy stylus cantilever, combined with a precision-crafted, finely polished, elliptical diamond tip. This cartridge is able to accurately reproduce very difficult musical passages, particularly in the high-frequency range, where audio modulations are the smallest and most concentrated, and stylus tip movement is consequently the most rapid.


The legendary combination of a rigid boron cantilever and Micro HD diamond stylus extract even the finest details stored in the record's groove both effortlessly and meticulously to deliver an unprecedented performance. The 10.8-gram hand-polished ebony body not only impresses with its discreet elegance, but also contributes to the clear, captivating sound of this cartridge by perfectly suppressing resonances.
