With the resurgence of vinyl people are discovering the experience of listening to music in the tradition that made it popular for decades in the past. For some it’s a new experience but for most it’s revisiting the nostalgia of when an artist’s release was much anticipated and going to a record store was exciting. Interestingly the pressing of the LP is getting better with improved technology and new artists are releasing their titles on vinyl and artists of the past are getting remastered makeovers.
The quality of the playback systems are just as important as vinyl improves. Turntables are in high demand and there are many to choose from. The $100 Crosley or Ion that may seem popular isn’t worth investing in. They sound horrible and don’t represent the true sound of what’s capable on a good record. At NLH, we carry Music Hall turntables that provide multiple levels of quality at amazing value. The full featured USB-1 is a great entry level turntable for those who are just getting started or are on a budget. At $499 the MMF-2.3 represents all the features a budding audiophile will love with the natural sound of the included cartridge and carbon fiber tone arm. The MMF-5.3 is the ultimate in affordable high end listening pleasure. Included is an Ortofon Blue cartridge, dual plinth design to create an isolated motor and tonearm so you only hear the essence of the record and nothing but pure sound.
The Denon DP-29F is our most affordable turntable with a great cartridge and provides the luxury of being fully automatic. The DP-200USB shares the same chassis but adds the convenience of recording your records to the digital realm for easy access. The very popular DP-300F surpasses anything in its price class for sound quality and performance. All Denon turntables are fully automatic.
