had the pleasure of talking with BAK and will try some of the phono preamps over the next several weeks. have read about them and having a chance to get a loaner is too good to pass up. I am interested in the Reflex C and will wait for one to come available. it looks like the 1000 ohm version is what i should try, the Hana SL cartridge specs are
 Output Voltage:
   SL: 0.5mV
Stylus shape: Shibata
Internal ohms:
   SL: 30Ω/1kHz
Suggested Loading:
   SL: >400Ω 
I will also try the elevator, it might make my Vincent Pho-8 sound good, will wait to see
thanks all
Wm

Good luck with the trial. I have read that the Hanas need to be loaded at 400 ohm or more for the proper sound. 1K ohm would hopefully work well in that case.

Confirming the advice above I am using my Acc MC's 500 ohm loading for my Hana SL and the records sound very good to me.

Following this as I am interested in a Hana SL as well, and will also plan on eventually upgrading my pre.

i got the loaner equipment and it is sounding good. at the moment i am chasing a slight hum that occurs at 33rpm not introduced by the Reflex M and elevator, somewhere betw TT and Rotel preamp

Hmm, sounds frustrating. Hope you get it sorted out. You probably know this but make sure the GS units and the PSUs are not too close to each other and not too close to other equipment.
