A few months ago I ran out space to store my records and you all know that having too many records is never enough. So, I started looking for a safe and stylish way to store my vinyl.
After doing some research, I quickly realized that there are not many vinyl storage options available on the market. All I could found was either the classic crate box or the IKEA type cubes. Those were not an alternative for me, as I’m running short on space on my listening room, at the end I had to go the custom route in order to get what I wanted.
Audio separates are the audiophile’s weapon of choice, having a different enclosures and power supplies for each unit results in better performance. More importantly, unlike a receiver or integrated amplifier, were you are stuck with whatever configuration the manufacturer chose, with separates there are endless combination of preamplifiers and amplifiers to choose from.
There is a common misconception that all audio amplifiers should sound the same, this is only true of ideally perfect amplifiers. In the real word, there are always compromises in the design due to budget constraints.
There is always a product that gets a lot of attention at an audio show. Last April at AXPONA 2017, the Hana cartridges were that product. A lot of system at the show where using this cartridges, and I keep hearing favorable comments about them. But who are this Hana guys?
