Music Hall MMF 5.3 Turntable with Ortofon 2M Blue Cartridge

The Music Hall MMF-5.3 turntable is a two speed belt driven audiophile turntable employing the unique dual-plinth construction originated by Music Hall.

The distinctive design isolates the critical sound reproducing components; platter, main bearing, tonearm, and cartridge on the top platform from the motor, switch, wiring, and feet which are mounted on the bottom platform. Viso-elastic cones separate the two platforms and provide vibration damping.

The MMF-5.3 comes complete with Ortofon 2M Blue cartridge mounted.

TEAC's new UD-501 is the star of the 501 series. The UD-501 supports Direct Stream Digital (DSD) playback at either 2.8 MHz or 5.6MHz (DXD) rates. PCM audio is supported up to 384kHz/32-bit resolution. It connects to your computer over USB using ASIO 2.1 or DoP. The output section of the UD-501 features two BurrBrown 32-bit DACs per channel and JRC MUSES op amps, also with a dual monaural design. Both balanced XLR and unbalanced RCA outputs are available to connect to your power amplifier. A toroidal-core power supply ensures top performance and clean transient playback, for quality that outperforms components five times its price.

Audiostream awarded the UD-501 their Greatest Bits award in a rave review, in which the reviewer "Debated delaying this review so I could [...] find something more, ah hem, critical to talk about." "The UD-501 invites you into each musical performance making it downright difficult to leave." In Japan, the UD-501 has been awarded the VGP (Visual Grand Prix) Gold Award, one of the most famous in the Japanese AV equipment market. It was also awarded the AEx (Audio Excellence Award) and AEx Extra Award for pure audio equipments.

The two toroidal-core power transformers offer a stable current supply with energy-effcient operation. Using a pair of power transformers, one each for the left and right channel, ensures that current is delivered exclusively to each channel.
