Music Hall mmf-5.3SE Turntable
The music hall mmf-5.3se special edition turntable is a 2-speed belt driven audiophile turntable employing the unique dual-plinth construction originated by music hall. The distinctive design isolates the critical sound reproducing components: platter, main bearing, tonearm, and cartridge on the top platform from the motor, switch, wiring, and feet which are mounted on the bottom platform. Sorbothane hemispheres separate the two platforms and provide suspension and vibration damping. The music hall mmf-5.3se Special Edition record player comes complete with an Ortofon 2M Bronze moving magnet phono cartridge.
Dual-plinth construction combats noise
The MMF-5.3se’s unique two-piece MDF chassis, or plinth, does more than just look beautiful — it also isolates vibrations that can smear sonic detail. The bottom platform supports the height-adjustable feet, motor, power switch, wiring, and electrical parts. The top platform separately houses the turntable’s critical sound-reproducing components — the platter bearing, tonearm, and cartridge. Six elastic cones isolate the two layers, virtually eliminating transmitted vibration for silent backgrounds and superior sound.
A steady-spinning alloy platter
The ‘table’s dynamically balanced alloy platter spins on a precision stainless steel bearing sheathed in a layer of Teflon® for smooth, steady rotation. The supplied screw-on record clamp ensures tight coupling of your records to the platter — which really improves playback of warped discs.
High-performance tonearm and cartridge
The Music Hall MMF-5.3se special edition record player’s carbon fiber tonearm provides superb tracking to faithfully follow the grooves of your albums. Its 9″ effective length gives it a shallower tracking arc across the record than shorter tonearms, helping to reduce distortion. The turntable also comes equipped with Ortofon’s acclaimed 2M Bronze phono cartridge. This cartridge’s highly polished, nude-mounted stylus reaches deep into your record’s grooves, revealing fresh detail and dynamics to bring the music to life.
