Slightly inconvenient to change speed from 33rpm to 45rpm, but if you want to play albums predominantly this wil not be an issue for you.
The thing I improved right away was the felt platter mat, which appeared pretty cheap-looking to me. I replaced it with a Music Hall cork board platter mat.
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. Did not increase bass, but made it more consistent.
5: Wall transformer power supply. But at least you can easily unplug it when not in use.
6: Up cueing need to be damped, it is a bit abrupt.
From my POV their is a lot more to like than dislike. And the Pro-Ject Debut III or Carbon equivalent would be very similar. If you buy any modern belt drive table and have speed issues, turn it on and let it spin for at least 24 hours to break in the bearing and then relube. Made a world of difference on mine and my friends Rega RP-1. But 99% of the time any speed issues could be traced back to the album being off center. In the past I have owned a BIC 960, Dual 1219 and still have a Technic's Linear track, and I enjoy this table more than any of those listed. It just sounds better overall. No glaring weaknesses.
Update: June 23, 2013
Have owned it now for 2 years. Still very impressed with the quality/value ratio. I have had zero problems with the table. Everything functions as new. Have used in the vicinity of 750 hours. I replaced the stylus with a Made in Japan by Nagaoka aftermarket replacement. It sounds even better than the original. Last December I gave myself a Christmas gift of the Pro-ject Speed Box S. It has made the table even better. It can now play my 45's without switching the belt to the larger pulley. Also it has enhanced the speed stability of the platter's rotation, as the reference voltage is now quartz locked. Think of it as a quartz-locked belt drive. I have seen no negatives to adding the Speed Box. If Music Hall ever updates this TT the only suggestion would be to add a end of record arm lift.
Update May 29, 2014
Have moved up a couple of steps in the turntable arena, so on Memorial Day I sold my MMF 2.2 to a new proud owner. After 3 years I still have only good things to say about this table. The Music Hall IMO is still the best new Turntable in this price range. Thanks Roy Hall for 3 great years of tunes, with zero problems.
I started with a cheap old sanyo table and moving to this one was great!
There is a bit of static problems with the felt pad for the platter.
Easy set up but follow the instructions!
I can't compare this to other similar tables but in my research i concluded that this table was right for me. I can't image other tables in this price range sound much different. I chose this one because i like the look (it's sexy) and it can be upgraded to an extent.
Good starter table!
