Definitely a better choice for me.

I love the simple look of clean Maple.

You would have to have them cut the new base with the same hole for the jack. Otherwise It is almost as simple as a normal drop in.

Absolutely. It's my wood of choice. It's a shame I couldn't get my Harbeths and Leben in Maple.

Do it. That black plate with a Maple base will be sexy.

Recently, I posted a photograph of a $1,400 table sitting on top of a $14 stand. Absurd, right? I enjoyed sharing a laugh with some of you over this. In fact, during the shoot, I laughed so hard I'm surprised I didn't achieve a strobe effect with my pix. But, you know what they say, the devil evil_smiley.gif is in the details. 

 

This isn't as absurd as one might think. Let's take a closer look, shall we?

The music hall mmf-7.1 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 adjustable tip toe feet which are mounted on the bottom platform.  Sorbothane hemispheres separate the two platforms and provide additional vibration damping. The motor, switch, and wiring are completely decoupled from the turntable and isolated on their own vibration damping puck.

From a listening perspective, the temporary TV stand poses no ill effects. Listening to the table on the audio rack and my desk prior, confirms this.

So you're saying that there's no need to isolation platforms, then? HOW COULD YOU SAY THAT?

 

I plan to get one for my new Amadeus just as a 'piece of mind' kind of thing. Then again, speaker systems are a different beast.

No, the two key things being said by both me and the manufacturer is: It has a built-in isolation platform/with other isolation tweaks for components; the surface it rests on is still important but as placed, I am not encountering any problems. 

 

I'm patiently waiting with you - can't wait for you to get your stuff! What kind of iso treatment will you use for the table?

All I can say is that I hope you still have the plastic cover for the Music Hall ... you know so you can still eat your dinner without getting pot noodle stuck in the drive belt.

Excellent use of a Macbook.

I bet that sounds brilliant. Very nice.

Probably a Mapleshade Isoblock 4" platform. Simple, looks nice, and WTL recommends a platform, so I may as well get one. Might get one for the Leben later on purely for looks just so they match height wise. 

 

I'll probably put them on the Expedits the way they are now and get the maple Expedits when we move so it all goes together well.
