Frequent requests for <$3k table/arm/cartridge combinations led me to dredge up show memories of combos that have impressed me over time, which, combined with a ton of research, led me to Roy Hall at Music Hall.
Fast forward to today and I’m listening to the MMF 5.3SE (walnut) with a pre-mounted Ortofon 2M Bronze cartridge feeding the Leben HiFi RS-30EQ phono stage.
Color me impressed! Does the table/arm/cart combo represent good value for money? Heck yes! More importantly, does it draw the listener into the music, getting all the essential aspects of vinyl reproduction right. Yes, yes it does.
I’m extremely pleased to be extremely well-equipped to offer newcomers to vinyl and those who know they love LPs but have competing financial priorities a beautiful way to explore that realm.
