A gorgeous cherry wood turntable

The gorgeous Music Hall MMF-1.5 turntable features a classic cherry wood veneer on a solid MDF plinth. It also includes a built-in phono preamp with pre-attached cables, so you have plenty of setup options.

You can plug directly into a pair of powered stereo speakers, or go through a receiver or outboard preamp. Whichever way you go, it won't be long until you're enjoying warm, detailed vinyl sound.

Pre-mounted cartridge

The turntable's curved aluminum tonearm features a pre-mounted Melody cartridge, designed by Audio Technica for Music Hall. The cartridge has a low-mass aluminum cantilever to help it respond more quickly and accurately to undulations in the record groove for clear, distortion-free sound.

Product Research


Manual Belt-Drive: The Music Hall MMF-1.5 turntable employs a low noise, fully manual belt drive design.

3-Speed Operation: A built-in speed control circuit ensures the accuracy of the MMF-1.5 turntable's three operating speeds (33-1/3, 45, & 78 RPM).

Die-Cast Aluminum Platter: The Music Hall MMF-1.5 turntable utilizes a die-cast aluminum platter and a thick rubber mat to dampen ambient vibration. The belt comes pre-mounted to the platter, making setup easier and quicker.

MDF Plinth w/ Vibration Damping Feet: The MMF-1.5 turntable features a MDF Plinth and vibration damping feet to prevent unwanted vibration. The MDF plinth features a real cherry wood veneer.

Aluminum Tonearm + MM Cartridge: The Music Hall MMF-1.5 includes an aluminum tonearm and comes with an uninstalled Music Hall Melody phono (MM) cartridge with diamond stylus. You will have to mount the cartridge/stylus assembly to the tonearm.

Built-in Switchable Preamp: A built-in phono preamplifier allows connection of the turntable to an AV receiver, integrated amplifier, or powered speakers that do not have a dedicated phono input. The built-in phono preamp can be turned off when using an AV receiver or integrated amp with a phono input (MM).

Stereo RCA Output: The Music Hall MMF-1.5 is outfitted with a stereo RCA output and comes with a 5' stereo RCA cable to connect the turntable to your AV receiver, integrated amplifier, or powered speakers.

External Power Supply: The MMF-1.5 includes an external AC power supply.

Hinged Dust Cover: The Music Hall MMF-1.5 comes supplied with a hinged dust cover to prevent dust build-up on the turntable.

After a bad experience with the Audio Technica at-lp120 (the motor makes a rumble sound) I wanted a turntable that is hopefully better quality and belt drive. This looks like it will fit the bill.Also, it's beautiful and will make a nice addition to my system. [ Jerold  Jan 23, 2018 ]
It has a 78 speed and it was highly recommended by someone and the reviews were very good [ Jordan  Jan 17, 2018 ]

I'm using the factory setting of 2.5
[ James  Apr 21, 2019 ]
I think it's 2.0
[ James  Apr 21, 2019 ]
I am liking this turntable but am a little confused by one of the reviews. In the review they stated they needed to purchase a pre amp?? Is the built in pre amp sufficient or???

This turntable is gorgeous. The description stated preamp was included, perhaps integrated as no separate components in box. Regardless, I did purchase a separate preamp and the sound is sweet!
[ Luana  Jan 23, 2019 ]
It does have a preamp and It's OK. You will be able to enjoy this TT if you have only regular aux inputs on your amp (or powered speakers). That said, the built-in preamp doesn't sound as lively or gutsy as the phono input on my integrated amp (Proton D540, from 1988). I would bet a stand-alone phono pre would make this thing really really shine. I really love this turntable.
[ Steven  Jan 19, 2019 ]
I love my turntable. You do not need a pre amp.
[ RONALD E  Jan 17, 2019 ]
Hello. We find the built in pre amp to be great. We connect through our Bose sound system. I think it will depend on what you will use as your amplifier. We absolutely love the MMF-1.5.
[ Celeste  Jan 17, 2019 ]
I am using the built in pre-amp and I think it sounds great. I'm sure it may sound better with a pre-amp you can buy separately, but you don't need to.
[ James  Jan 16, 2019 ]
Pre amp is more than sufficient. Set was simple and sounds great. No pre-amp is needed
[ KERRY  Jan 15, 2019 ]
The turntable has a built-in phono preamp that can be switched off if you want to provide your own.The built-in preamp gets great reviews and is more than sufficient for my sound system. I think the gain from spending a few hundred for a better external preamp would be minimal and would defeat the advantages of this affordable turntable.
[ Trent  Jan 15, 2019 ]
No need for a separate pre-amp. I connected mine directly to the amplifier.
[ Astolfo  Jan 15, 2019 ]
It's definitely sufficient for my set up. Enter
[ James  Jan 15, 2019 ]
This has a built in pre-amp. Plug in power, connect speakers, and go.
[ Guest  Jan 15, 2019 ]
This turntable has a preamp built into it. If you are plugging it into a receiver that has a preamp built in it, all you will need to do is switch the turntable from phono to line an you are good to go. If the amp does not have a preamp built into it, you just leave the switch set at phono. I hope this helps.
[ John A.  Jan 15, 2019 ]
Hi! What about its speed stability and wow & flutter aspects? Have you noticed anything wrong towards to these things?
[ Lboas  May 08, 2018 ]
5 answers
I have not seen an issue asked in the question. Turntable performs great.
[ Trent  Jan 15, 2019 ]
No, no problem with wow & flutter or speed stability, but, just in case, there is a electronic speed control adjustment knob on the back of turntable you can use to change the platter speed if necessary.
[ Jaroslaw  May 09, 2018 ]
Hello! The speed stability is very good; even wihen playing heavy weight 78 rpm. The flutter aspect seems to be fine; no noticeable variation in pitch. We are very happy with this turn table and highly recommend it.
[ Celeste  May 09, 2018 ]
The speed stability is good, no audible wow and flutter to my old ears.
[ Jerold  May 09, 2018 ]
Speed stability is good for this price point, Wow & Flutter rated at 0.15% limit. I can occasionally detect Wow (but not Flutter) if a song ends on a single extended note, but there are no audible irregularities to my ear during performance segments of music.
[ Jeffrey  May 08, 2018 ]
