Special Edition Upgrades a Stereophile Recommended Component
Music Hall's MMF-5.1SE is the 'Special Edition' enhanced version of a Stereophile "Recommended Component" and The Absolute Sound "Editors' Choice Award" Winner.
What's different about the SE? The Special Edition includes upgrades to several critical components. The vibration damping system, cartridge, and plinth all receive significant improvements for a great leap forward in performance. And speaking of the phono cartridge, the MMF-5.1SE now includes the new Mojo moving magnet cartridge at no additional cost.
Enhanced Two-plinth Design
The MMF-5.1SE boasts a unique proprietary two-plinth design now with Sorbothane isolation orbs separating the bottom platform from the top. This extra level of isolation keeps motor and room vibration out of your music. The separately isolated asynchronous motor with two-speed (33/45rpm) pulley is exceptionally quiet. The switch, wiring, and electrical parts are located on the bottom plinth, while the critical sound reproducing components such as the bearing and arm, are mounted on the "floating" top platform.
The dynamically balanced alloy platter comes with a soft felt mat and screw-on record clamp. The platter and felt mat sit on a high quality, recision stainless steel main bearing sheathed in Teflon, providing extra damping control for fluid, noise-free operation. The bearing assembly comes pre-charged with lubricant. The net effect is transparent sound and excellent realism, especially on acoustic instruments.
Music Hall didn't skimp on the tonearm that comes standardwith the MMF-5.1SE. The top tier one-piece alloy tonearm boasts flexible internal wire drawn from high purity copper. The bearings are made from hardened stainless steel points set in sturdy ring cages.
For precise tracking, the counterweight’s center of gravity is level with the stylus tip and is decoupled from the arm to act as a resonance damper. The arm also boasts an adjustable VTA and a damped arm lift.
High-Value Mojo Phono Cartridge
So that you can start enjoying your Music Hall immediately, it now comes standard with a Mojo moving magnet phono cartridge.
The Mojo is a fine-line stylus cut that offers exceptionally tracking ability. It is specially built by Ortofon for Music Hall and uses a Nude FG 70 diamond stylus type. Mojo delivers smooth and extended high frequencies and low distortion, plus a highly detailed and dynamic sound.
The 5.1SE looks are good as it sounds. The luxurious rosenut real wood veneer top plinth renders a classic look to a sophisticated design.
Also included are premium gold-plated RCA connectors with detachable phono cable, special vibration damping adjustable feet, round spirit level for easy leveling, dust cover, 45 rpm adaptor, and an excellent instruction manual.
