Music Hall mmf-1.3 turntable $350 Review

November 18, 2022 Comments Off on Music Hall mmf-1.3 turntable $350 Review

 The Music Hall mmf-1.3 turntable combined with the built-in phono stage and the Audio-Technica AT-3600L phono cartridge provided a very pleasant sound and an enjoyable listening experience. There was not much record surface noise, which I normally would expect with such an inexpensive turntable. I could not hear any inner groove distortion no matter which record I played. This could be because the tracking was excellent. This inexpensive phono cartridge was quite a bit better than I had expected and I felt it integrated well with the turntable. If there are any errors, they are of omission, so you get that nice vinyl sound that only records can provide. The turntable is good enough that, down the road, you could improve things with a better phono cartridge, such as a Sumiko Rainier or an Audio Technica AT-VM95E, or even a different phono stage. My comparably priced Goldring turntable really benefited from upgrading to a Talisman moving coil phono cartridge, which most people would consider overkill. The Music Hall turntable’s built-in phono stage was also quite good. There was no noise and when playing records you may forget the phono stage is there. I did play a variety records so I could see how it compared with my other turntables.
