Music Hall Ikura overview

  • 1Description

The high-gloss white ikura from Music Hall is a two-speed, belt-driven audiophile turntable employing the company's two-piece split-plinth construction. The plinths are isolated and separated by three vulcanized rubber cones. Three adjustable conical feet, a two-speed DC synchronous motor, power switch, wiring and electrical parts are all mounted on the bottom plinth, while the sound reproducing components: the main bearing, arm and cartridge are mounted on the top plinth.

The MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard) platter and felt mat sit on a stainless steel ball bearing sheathed in Teflon, providing fluid and noise-free operation. The bearing assembly comes pre-charged with lubricant. The effective length of the tone arm is nine inches, allowing for a very shallow tracking arc on the record that reduces distortion and record wear. The tone arm comes mounted with a moving magnet cartridge and features Swiss made ABEC 7 stainless steel bearings.

    Music Hall Ikura reviews

    ikura - Two-Speed Audiophile Turntable with Ortofon 2m Blue Cartridge (High Gloss White) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent build, great natural sound I purchased this Turntable several months ago; and am extremely satisfied with quality build and great sound! Forget reading the specs, and the advertising jargon about similar priced competition. The platter and turntable are silent in-between passages. The components were selected by MH to deliver a beautiful, detailed analog sound. I did have some reason to deal with Music Hall support, and they were excellent. Recommend the turntable and for that matter, the Music Hall Company!
