Further Information

I'm selling an MMF 7 turntable with ProJect 9 tonearm fitted with Goldring 2200 MM cartridge.

 

When I bought it, the MMF 7 was close to the top of Music Hall’s range and its features are:

·       Split plinth, belt-driven design with "floating" top chassis assembly

·       16V AC motor assembly in its own enclosure, mounted on a resonance damping puck

·       ProJect 9 tonearm

·       Gold-plated RCA jacks

·       Goldring 2200 high output, moving iron cartridge (moderate use = less than one LP a month during my 4ish years of ownership)

·       Heavy acrylic, low resonance platter

·       Hinged, perspex dust cover

·       Screw-down record puck

·       Three adjustable cone-point feet and dimpled coins

·       Bubble level set into plinth

 

I’ve had this lovely turntable for about 4 years but I’ve recently bought a Technics DD restoration project (SL1100) and I've been convinced we don’t have room for two turntables. The turntable operates as it should and is in good cosmetic condition (the perspex cover shows a normal level of scuffs for its age). I've just replaced the drive belt (custom-made) because the old one was cracked and tired.

 

Here is a review in Stereotimes for the turntable.

 

I am the second owner of this turntable and I believe they originally retailed for over $AUD1,500. The latest version, the MMF7.3, includes some design tweaks to the plinth, motor (AC to DC motor) and tonearm (V9 to V9cc?), which retails for $2,800

 

MMF 7 specifications:
