Music Hall MMF-1.3 reviews
This turntable is labeled entry level but I would strongly disagree! It plays like a top of the line turntable. I paired it with Klipsch RP160M reference speakers and my albums sound crystal clear! I can't play enough albums to satisfy me! Love it!
Pros: Great sound!
Cons: Wish it had auto return but no biggie!

A very nice turntable at a very nice price. Easy to assemble. Sonically exceeded my expectations. Only negatives are that the cartridge tracks at 3 grams and the dust cover, although a plus to have, has to be lowered by hand all the way down to prevent "banging" and/or stylus skip. Turntable lives up to the reviews it has received.
Pros: Easy assembly, turntable comes with moving coil cartridge, dust cover.
Cons: Cartridge tracks at a hefty 3 grams, dust cover weight will create an audible "bang" or stylus skip if not lowered completely to rest by hand.

This is simply the best turntable I've ever owned. It's the first non-plastic table I've owned (and I've had quite a few). Our LP's sound better than ever. They actually seem more quiet than previous, with the ticks and pops not being nearly as noticeable as before. So far, I've only used the built-in phono preamp, but it sounds good to me. Still, I'm sure I will eventually try it with an external pre. I'm extremely impressed with the design and quality. It has good heft and a beautiful finish. This is a gorgeous looking and sounding record playing combo for a very reasonable amount of money, IMHO. If it holds up for me, and I expect that it will, it is an easy recommendation at this price point.
Pros: >sound quality >build quality >feature set >usability >looks >value
Cons: >heavy recommended cartridge tracking force (3 gm) might cause extra record wear >no auto return and shut-off >dust cover is heavy (good) but can fall hard, causing stylus to skip (bad!), so care is needed when closing it with a record playing
