Our take on the Music Hall MMF-2.2

by Dave Bar

Unwind with warm analog sound

If you've never experienced the warm and natural sound that vinyl is famous for, the MMF-2.2 is a great place to start. This solidly built Music Hall turntable makes an excellent choice for seasoned audiophiles and vinyl newcomers alike who want to get outstanding sound quality without spending a fortune. Music Hall's minimalist design philosophy focuses on the features that benefit sonic performance — no unnecessary bells and whistles here. With its simple, elegant appearance and high-gloss piano black lacquer finish, this table will look and sound fantastic atop your audio rack.

High-quality construction for top-notch performance

The MMF-2.2's sturdy MDF chassis rests on vibration damping rubber feet that provide a solid, low-resonance foundation. Its heavy steel alloy platter spins on a high-precision stainless steel and bronze bearing assembly for excellent speed stability and smooth, silent rotation. The motor mount and belt drive system effectively isolate the motor's vibration from the chassis to prevent noise from being transferred to the cartridge. An external AC power supply helps further reduce any traces of interference or hum. Finally, the table's rigid, one-piece aluminum alloy tonearm provides superb tracking ability to faithfully follow the grooves of your albums, and includes a silicone-damped lift for gently raising and lowering the arm — protecting both the stylus and your records.     

Quick and easy to assemble

Music Hall knows that turntable setup can be a challenge for the novice. That's why the MMF-2.2 comes out of the box virtually ready to play. Its pre-matched, factory-mounted phono cartridge and tonearm take the guesswork out of installation, and give you optimized sound quality with minimal effort. A few simple steps to dial in key settings like tracking force, anti-skating, and platter speed are all it takes to get this player primed and ready to deliver spacious, detailed music.

Highlights:

  • heavy steel alloy platter with felt mat provides excellent speed stability
  • high-precision stainless steel and bronze bearing assembly for smooth, quiet platter rotation

Features

Overview: The Music Hall MMF-2.2 is a two speed belt driven audiophile turntable that delivers superior audio performance. The construction of the MMF-2.2 has been simplified to focus on the critical music making components; the main bearing, motor, and arm. It is constructed using high quality components and comes complete with the cartridge mounted.

Note: The Music Hall MMF-2.2 turntable is available in high gloss piano black, red, or white finish.

MDF Plinth w/ Damping Feet: The medium density fiber (MDF) plinth stands on three special, resonance damping feet for exceptional stability.

Note: The turntable should be positioned on a low-resonance surface such as wood or multiple layer ply-board to avoid structural vibrations disturbing replay.

Alloy Platter with Felt Mat: The Music Hall MMF-2.2 turntable features an alloy platter and comes with a felt mat.

Stainless Steel/Bronze Bearing Assembly: The alloy platter runs on a precision, stainless steel and bronze bearing assembly to provide fluid and quiet operation.

Belt-Driven: The Music Hall turntable employs a low noise fully manual belt drive design that supports two speeds (33/45 rpm). A 45 rpm adapter is included.

1-Piece Alloy Tone-Arm: The Music Hall MMF-2.2 turntable features a one piece alloy tone-arm for superb tracking ability.

MM Phono Cartridge: The Music Hall Tracker moving magnet (MM) phono cartridge is pre-mounted and properly aligned. The turntable's elliptical stylus is user replaceable.

Note: If your amplifier does not have a suitable Phono MM input, a separate phono pre-amplifier (sold separately) is required to connect the turntable to your amplifier.

Fixed Audio Cable: The Music Hall Turntable is fitted with an attached 41" stereo audio cable with high-quality gold RCA connectors. Connect the turntable to the Phono input of your home receiver.

Dust Cover: The Music Hall MMF-2.2 comes supplied with a dust cover to prevent dust build-up on the turntable.

Isolated Motor: The motor is isolated from the plinth to reduce vibration transmission.

Turntable Finally Works Beautifully!

Written By MikeM, Palm Harbor, FL on Monday, February 25, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
When I first received a my Music Hall MMF-2.2 turntable, it had a serious hum in the right channel. After making sure the problem was not caused by improper set up or a faulty ground I called Crutchfield support and was quickly shipped a product and given a return authorization for the defective unit. When the second unit arrived it set up perfectly and I was playing my old vinyl from the 70s in no time. Problems will arise from time to time, but Crutchfield did a fine job of making sure I was satisfied in a timely manner.
Pros:
Great Service! Beautiful sounding product.
Cons:
Defective product the first time out. Alls well in the end though!

Music Hall MMF 2.2

Written By CEngle, Canfield Ohio on Wednesday, January 16, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I am 53 and became an ardent classic rock listener in the mid 70's. Vinyl records were my favorite medium and amassed a large record collection. I contiuned listening to vinyl throught the 80"s up until the advent of CDs. I was reluctant to switch to CD, but like most people I was intriqued with something new. So I turned to CDs, sold my turntable at a garage sale and gave away all my records. Thankfully, I did keep my Sansui stereo receiver.

About five years ago, while visiting a local CD store, I noticed used vinyl records for sale. I looked through the records for sale and began to reminiace. At that point, I thought how great it would be to start listening and collecting albums. I still had my receiver but I needed a turnatable so I bought an inexpensive turntable and began collecting records. As my records collection began to grow, I decided to upgrade my turntable.

After reviewing as much information available, I decided to purchase the MMF 2.2 because it fit my price range and was supposed to have quality sound The MMF 2.2 was easy to setup and took about 30 minutes after carefully following the user's maunal. After completing the setup, my first impression before playing a record was Music Hall's "minimalist design philosphy" was accurate. This is a basic turntable with no frills. The sound quality of this turntable is amazing. The sound was crisp and clear. I played the song "Royal Scam" by Stealy Dan and could hear every instrument. Clearly amazing.
Pros:
Amazing sound quality and easy setup
