What I like best about it:
1: The supplied cartridge is nice and neutral. It is easily the equal of a Shure M97 or equivalent. It is neither bright or dull and has very good bass response. Requires only a short break-in period to come alive. Also, it has been virtually indestructible in my klutzy hands.
2: The tonearm is a nice dual gimbaled design that has no friction that I can feel. It will track anything, as my warped Beatles reissues have proven. My example came perfectly aligned and produces absolutely no inner groove distortion. A very nice arm at this price point.
3: Very vibration resistant. No feedback at all.
4: Very nice downward cueing. Not too fast or too slow. No drift side to side.
5: No noise issues. No rumble, no hum, no clicks.
6: It looks awesome, if you are into the classy Spartan look. I know you can't hear that, but still nice.
7: Nice dustcover that can be removed easily when playing records. And reinstalls easily also.
8: Very easy to get level with the easily adjustable feet, and it stays level.
9: Decent quality cables and ground wire.
10: Very nice soundstage. Instruments and vocal are where they were meant to be.
What I don't like:
1: Fully manual, you are its servant, not the other way around.
2: Cheap looking and gritchy feeling on/off switch. But has presented no problems.
3: Wish the RCA cables detached in the rear instead of wired internally.
4: The standard felt mat is a joke. I bought a Pro-Ject IT cork mat from the UK, and could not be happier. It reduced static in the winter and improved the bass response.Read more ›
I studied entry-level tables from the usual suspects: Rega, Pro-Ject and Music Hall. My decision came down between the latter two, and I chose the Music Hall for its greater user-adjustability. I'm not so sure one can really go wrong with any of these choices, but I'm absolutely blown away by the performance of this sub-$500 rig. Though it's cliche to state, I truly am hearing things in the music I didn't before. When spinning, this thing is dead quiet and smooth. The bottom end is tight and defined, and the highs are crisp with no distortion that I can detect. About the only negative thing is that it's SO good at reproducing sound that the snap-crackle-pops of used records are more audible. When the music kicks in, though, I could hardly care.
Some professional reviews suggest it takes 30 minutes or less to set up out of the box. As an inexperienced, budding audiophile, it took me a bit longer. This was by no means the fault of the excellently written instruction manual. I haven't had the occassion to contact customer service, but I understand Music Hall's is second to none.
If you're on a budget like me, have an ever-expanding vinyl collection and are wondering what you might be missing without an audiophile turntable...look no further than the Music Hall MMF-2.2.
I am pretty much thrilled. I think the build quality is amazing. The piano balck finish is beautiful. The arm is pretty awesome. the motor ultra quiet. I did upgrade the platter to the Acryl-It Platter, mainly because I had heard negative things about the platter and slipmat shipped with the MMF. Plus it looks ultra cool. The music just flows from this little jem. I have an Audio Technica AT120E to upgrade the cartridge at a latter date (it used to be my favorite 30 years ago).
I really can't thnk of any downside to the table at all.Read more ›
