Marrying the Golden Age of the Past to the Higher-Performing Vinyl Promise of the Present: Music Hall Classic Turntable Features Uni-Pivot Tonearm, Cartridge, and More
Look at the belt-driven Music Hall Classic turntable dead-on from eye level, and you'll see a refined analog instrument defined by a dark-walnut wood-veneer base so alluring, its finish seemingly belongs in America's finest steakhouses. View it from above, and you'll notice the uni-pivot tonearm, factory-mounted Spirit cartridge, touch-sensitive electronic speed control for 33/45RPM, aluminum platter, felt mat, and super-accurate lines for the counterweight.
But while Classic proves a looker, its practical fortitude comes alive when spinning LPs, a process it makes even easier with automatic lift and shut-off functionality and quiet, detailed, ultra-stable playback. You can also opt to use its built-in bypassable phono preamplifier as well. A powerful DC motor, adjustable damping feet, removable head shell, and dust cover round out an instrument that weds the golden age of the past to the higher-performing vinyl promise of the present. 100% Music Direct Satisfaction Guaranteed.
"[You'll need to probably spend three times as much on a pre-configured table to make upgrading over the Classic truly worth it. A simple cartridge upgrade, which may run you an additional $100 or $200, is bound to be a better investment overall. So, all that said, how would I sum up the Music Hall Classic? It is a well-rounded, pleasant sounding turntable that is somewhat a jack of all trades and dangerously close to being a master of some of them."

"At $599 and as plug'n'play as a 'table can be, the Classic is a must-audition. It's a delight to use, and its included Music Hall Spirit cartridge extracts maximum information from the groove."
