I can see the POV's you are both expressing and wonder if the bit that would help from the Audiomods document is helping optimise the cartridge sound. Assuming a neutral phono stage but not knowing which tonearm our members would try, perhaps it is really about the different character of different cartridges with setup tips like VTF, loading, SRA/arm angle?

One of the things I like about the Hana SL is bags of detail without too much treble as I have had a few cartridges that drew attention to singers' lisps. The latter may be sibilance on the pressing and/or a cartridge characteristic but it breaks the spell for me.

My thanks again to fellow members who recommended the Hana series and for the second hand deal I have benefitted from. The SL is doing its wonders on a variety of music styles, outperforms my well used R100L, and it is as enjoyable to listen to as the much more expensive Phoenix.
