Hey Chris,  A mile off your subject:
I'm thinking of going with a HOMC cart when the time dictates. But, I do not want to purchase a ZMC to make things right. Has anyone gone thru this process with good success?

I have never had a HOMC, they have all been low output. Not by choice just the way it turned out. My old NYAL Minuet in A could take LOMC straight in with plenty of gain. Let me know how it goes when the time comes. Happy listening, Chris.

Hello Acetone,
You don't need a step-up transformer with a HOMC. It will feed directly into a MM phono stage, such as the ZP3, and supply sufficient signal to drive the phono stage to full output.

You only need a step-up such as the ZMC when feeding a LOMC into a MM phono stage.

Cheers,                          Crazy Bill

Hello Chris.

Check out the Feb 2017 Absolute Sound issue. Andre Jennings reviews the Hana offerings, and is very highly impressed w/ all of them, but especially the SL.

Cheers,                        Crazy Bill

Thanks for the info crazy bill. Hana looks very good. I am interested in the S -series. But, might still go with the SL and step it up. Saving $ first.

Anyone get around to testing the Hana HOMC with the ZP3?

Hana      EH      47 kΩ      2 mV      $475

I am really interested in getting one but don't want a SUT.
