Dual-plinth construction combats noise

The MMF-5.3LE's two-piece chassis isolates vibrations that can smear sonic detail. The bottom platform supports the adjustable feet, motor, power switch, wiring, and electrical parts. The top platform keeps the critical sound-reproducing components separate. Six elastic cones isolate the two layers to eliminate transmitted vibration. This design gives you superior sound with quieter backgrounds.

A steady-spinning alloy platter

The 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 — great for warped discs.

High-performance tonearm and cartridge

The MMF-5.3LE's carbon fiber tonearm tracks the grooves of your records faithfully. Its 9" length gives it a shallower tracking arc for reduced distortion. The included Ortofon 2M Blue cartridge reveals fresh-sounding musical detail and dynamics.
