The SH (Shibata High output) offers 2.0mv output
The Hana Series has been developed with significance placed on easy use and set-up, as well as high performance reproduction. Hana's high output versions, EH and SH, supply 2mV output, so that they can be directly connected to MM phono input for vinyl reproduction.
