Glanz is a brand that has been producing tonearm and cartridge masterpieces for many years, and has been adored by audio lovers for a very long time. Their ultimate tonearm, constructed with the technical skill of a craftsman deeply versed in the characteristics of materials, is now able to bring you the to the pinnacle of original “pure” sound. The Glanz, manufactured with strict guidelines, is the absolute front runner, able to demonstrate the true value of analogue audio. The story of its revival can now be told. Mr. Masataka Hamada who was the developer of Glanz at Mitachi Acoustics, has resurrected Glanz within his own company, Hamada Electric. After engaging in the development of Mitachi Onkyo, Mr. Masataka Hamada spent many years doing jobs such as repairing Ortofon’s SPU series cartridges (especially the early models). During this period, he learned a great deal from the audio fans, who talked about their dissatisfaction, and made suggestions concerning the various tonearms that were being sold around the world. Armed with this information, the Glanz tonearm was designed and manufactured to faithfully reproduce sound. Their policy is to pursue original pure sound. The company’s products are aiming for the top. Original pure sound is the pinnacle! The sound produced by the current electronics industry is far removed from original pure sound, but when Mr. Masataka Hamada airs his opinion about this, he is considered eccentric! He is therefore keen to get to know other people who agree, even a little bit, with his ideas.
