The music hall mmf-9 turntable, our flagship model, is a 2-speed belt driven audiophile turntable employing the unique triple-plinth construction originated by music hall. The distinctive design isolates the critical sound reproducing components; platter, main bearing, tone arm, and cartridge on the top platform from the adjustable tip-toe feet, electronic speed control, and wiring which are mounted on the bottom platform. The motor is isolated on its own platform and completely decoupled from the turntable. Four Sorbothane hemispheres separate each of the three plinths and provide additional vibration damping. The mmf-9 comes in a high-gloss piano black lacquer finish and is available with or without cartridge.
The plinth has three adjustable spiked feet and comes with a set of small discs (cups). The discs prevent marking of the surface of the supporting shelf. A spirit level is incorporated on the top platform. The two platforms of the plinth are separated by four Sorbothane hemispheres, which act as a suspension and isolation system. External phono sockets are attached to the bottom platform. A high quality interconnect is supplied.
The motor is DC Servo electronically adjusteed and comes with an external power supply. The motor rests in a cutout on the front, left quadrant of the turntable. It is completely isolated from the table and sports a blue LED. Placing the motor diagonally opposite the arm reduces any vibrations caused by the belt from entering into the cartridge. Any vibrations would be absorbed along the length of the arm thus bypassing the stylus (The stylus moves from left to right, not front to back).
The belt runs round the perimeter of the acrylic platter. Acrylic was chosen for it's superior sound quality and isolation properties. A screw-on record clamp and felt mat are supplied as standard.
The Project Nine Tonearm has a headshell and shaft drawn from one piece of aluminum tube. The bearings are made from hardened stainless steel points set in sturdy ring cages. The Counterweight's center of gravity is level with the stylus tip.It is decoupled from the arm and acts as a resonance damper. The arm also has adjustable VTA, a damped arm lift and highly flexible internal wiring drawn from high purity copper.
