The Music Hall mmf-2.3 turntable is a new and improved version of the American brand’s 2.2 model. It is still their entry-level model, but now comes complete with numerous new features, making it an audiophile turntable worthy of the name!

Its MDF plinth is coated with a gorgeous lacquer finish and bears the Music Hall logo, giving it a distinct air of sophistication. It sits on three feet designed by Music Hall itself, and could be described as shortened upside-down pyramids that sandwich a vibration isolation bushing. This design is both aesthetically striking and technically effective. The mmf-2.3 has a suspended synchronous motor, which prevents vibrations being transferred to the turntable. It uses an external 15V DC power supply. It also has a dedicated circuit for a 16V alternating current. The drive pulley has two grooves which enable you to change the speed manually (between 33⅓ and 45 rpm) by moving the belt. The sub-platter bearing is made of bronze and spindle is made of stainless steel, and the whole mechanism has been meticulously milled and lubricated to prevent any unwanted friction. The sub-platter is made of highly durable PVC in order to limit vibration as much as possible.

The alloy platter gives the whole turntable excellent inertia, and is topped with a simple but effective traditional felt mat. The tonearm consists of a carbon fibre tube and aluminium headshell. It has been constructed with the utmost precision to ensure excellent tracking. The phono cable is not captive and is fitted with gold-plated RCA connectors and a fork ground wire. It comes as standard with a translucent dust cover as well as the excellent Ortofon 2M Red cartridge.

Setting up the Music Hall mmf-2.3 couldn’t be easier – especially when you order from, as we deliver it to your door fully assembled and set up! This means that when it arrives all that’s left to do is set up the platter, position the small antiskating weight on the second notch, then just sit back and enjoy the music! And we have to say that within seconds of pressing play, we were impressed by the dynamic range and definition of this turntable. The reproduction is vivid and very realistic, and the tonal balance is very natural and analogue-sounding. This vinyl turntable can’t do it all, but what it can do, it does very well! We're particularly impressed with the quality of the carbon fibre tonearm, especially as it is height adjustable, allowing you to adjust the VTA with even more precision. And this means it can handle a larger cartridge than competing products. This Music Hall turntable is an excellent alternative to other products by brands such as Rega, Pro-Ject and Thorens.

It has huge potential for upgrades and replacement of the stylus, cartridge, phono cables, platter mat, platter, etc. Highly recommended!
