The Black Crowes
The Music Hall USB1 turntable is a real winner! A belt-driven turntable with a decent S-shaped tonearm, a solid plinth, a pre-mounted Audio Technica cartridge and a very cool ball-bearing foot design. Sonic performance is shockingly good at this price and its so much better than any of the other "budget" tables on the market today. Th USB1 has a big, rich, lively sound and excellent pacing. Leave it to Music Hall to design an entry-level turntable that destroys all the competition.
The USB-1 comes with a defeatable built-in MM Phono preamp (making this table 'plug 'n' play') and an always-on USB output (B-Bus Type), for instant connectivity and extreme flexibility. Get your vinyl into your computer! Setup is simple; the turntable comes ready to pull out of the box and play.
The USB-1 comes with a dustcover, all necessary cables and Audacity software to import your wax onto your computer.
