The Hana EH is a pleasure to own. It sounds great without being fastidious. I first listened to it when I was considering taking on the line as a dealer for then distributor Mockingird Distribition. Before I could decide the distribution transitioned to its current distributor - Musical Surroundings. It sounded then as now very melodious, musical, sweet and warm and slightly on the opposite side of the Denon DL-103. It deoes not deliver a myriad of detailed minutiae which could be a complaint by some who are into the trees than the forest but in term of fervor and emotion that are sometimes sacrificed in the altar of detail, it is worth the miss. Very good indeed- this HANA EH.
