The Absolute Sound Editors Choice Best Buy Turntable (Issue 144 October/November 2003)
A Stereophile Recommended Component for many years
A remarkably musical turntable
A Stereophile magazine recommended component for many years and highly rated by many audio publications including The Absolute Sound, the Music Hall MMF-5 turntable is a complete 2-speed (33 and 45 rpm) turntable system with a glass platter, felt mat, high grade tonearm, Goldring G1012 moving magnet cartridge (a $225.00 value), dual plinth arrangement, metal screw-on record clamp, round spirit level, spare belt and 45 rpm adapter. At only $629.00, it is considered by many to have no peer within its price range. There are also others who would call the MMF-5 turntable downright sensational.
Consider this belt drive turntable's many singular features.
It has an original and unique 2-plinth design with six rubber springs separating the bottom platform from the top. This gives the turntable an extra level of isolation.
The compliant feet, 2-speed synchronous motor, switch, wiring and electrical parts are on the bottom plinth while the critical sound reproducing components, the bearing, arm and cartridge are mounted on the top platform.
Glass Platter & Precision Bearing
The low-resonance glass platter and felt mat sit on a high quality, stainless steel ball bearing sheathed in Teflon providing fluid and noise-free operation. The bearing assembly comes pre-charged with lubricant. A metal screw-on record clamp is standard equipment as is the round spirit level.
The effective length of the tone arm is nine and a half inches. This allows for a very shallow tracking arc on the record thus reducing distortion.
The tonearm comes fitted with a high quality Goldring G1012 moving magnet cartridge (a $225.00 value).
Plug and Play
The Music Hall MMF-5 turntable is easy to assemble and comes with an excellent instruction manual. The arm and cartridge are pre-mounted so all you need to do is set the tracking force and anti-skating as you would with any initial set-up.
