I recently purchased a Hana EL cartridge and I am quite pleased with it. I was considering a Denon 301 but wanted to try something a little different. Both of these cartridges, the Hana or 301, I think would work well for you.
Before I downsized my analog rig I was using an Ortofon Cadenza Bronze, a fabulous cartridge. The Hana is definitely not the Bronze but it comes remarkably close for only $475.
What tonearm are you using the Hana on? I have a Fidelity Research FR-54 16 gms. medium mass
I'm using a Technics SL1200 MkII and the arm has a mass of 12 grams. Your arm combined with the 6 grams of the Hana, including an allowance of 1 gram for mounting hardware, would give you a combined weight of 22 grams. Based on information I received on AA (see my thread way down the list), you should have an arm/cartridge resonance frequency of about 8. This is within acceptable limits and I don't think you will have any problems. I have not experienced any mistraking from the Hana in my arm.
