I read so many reviews raving about the Hana SL and decided that it *had* to be a step up from my Ortofon MC-3 Turbo. I've given the thing upward of 50 hours of break in time, tried it on two turntables (Technics SL 1210GR and Rega P6), messed with alignment, VTA, tracking force, loading, different headshells, you name it... and I just hate the thing. Sure, the high end is brilliantly clear, but when things get busy the lower midrange becomes a muddied mess. My old Ortofon MC-3 Turbo feels warmer, richer, has better stereo imaging, and is just more pleasant to listen to. Sure, it has some brightness and some issues with IGD, but I can spend my time enjoying the music. With the Hana, it's a constant fight. Vocals often seem recessed and certain details get lost. I simply can't get this thing to sound the way I want. Everyone raves about the Hana, so what am I missing here? Do I have a dud? Is it a poor match for my system? If I ditch the Hana, the question becomes: What next?
