Analog continues to thrive in today's digital audio world, and helping to support analog in today's digital world is Music Hall through products like its new mmf-1.5 turntable. 

The reasonably priced turntable is designed as a turnkey, fully featured analog solution that is plug-and-play for professional integrators. 

Music Hall ships the turntable complete and ready to go to enable quick installations in a variety of music systems. 

Factory built with a 9-inch S-shaped aluminum tonearm and a preinstalled Music Hall Melody phono cartridge, the mmf-1.5 includes a three-speed isolated DC synchronous motor that offers a choice of 33 1/3, 45 and 78 speeds.

A key part of the Music Hall mmf-1.5 turntable's turnkey functionality beyond its preinstalled Melody phono cartridge is its built-in phono preamp. The built-in phono preamp features gold-plated RCA connectors, and Music Hall includes a detachable phono cable to help get users up and running. 

Providing a basis for its musical performance, the mmf-1.5 employs a dense MDF plinth, along with a full-size aluminum platter, a vibration-dampening platter mat, and vibration dampening feet. 

In addition to its standard functions, Music Hall also designed the mmf-1.5 turntable to grow with a user's changing musical tastes and performance aspirations. Some of the mmf-1.5 turntable's adaptable features include a removable headshell that allows users to swap cartridges as their tastes change, and the ability to bypass the turntable's built-in phono preamp to support the use of outboard, traditional phono preamps. 

Other features Music Hall offers with the mmf-1.5 turntable include a cherry wood veneer finish and a dust cover.
