Music Hall Ikura Turntable w/Ortofon Cartridge

Our favorite turntable/cartridge combo under $1500!! Our floor sample is in impeccable condition - it has lived a privileged life up upon a wall shelf and has seen minimal use. With a two-part plinth system, this table is wonderful at self-isolating. Thus, it shall keep vibration from interfering with your sound, leaving more room for music and transparency! A no-brainer for a sub-$1,000 option! RETAIL: $1199.

Designed and developed in the USA, the ikura represents a distinct visual and technical design departure for music hall.

For the first time, music hall collaborated with an outside industrial design firm to develop and complete the project. The foundation of ikura’s design remains the unique two-piece split-plinth design originated by music hall and the final product is the result of a dynamic design partnership between Doing & Done, headed by designer James Kyroudis, and music hall.

The mdf (medium density fiberboard) platter and felt mat sit on a high quality, 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 tonearm is nine inches. This allows for a very shallow tracking arc on the record thus reducing distortion and record wear. The tonearm comes mounted with a high quality moving magnet cartridge and features Swiss made ABEC 7 stainless steel bearings.

Each element of the ikura was carefully selected to provide you with the highest level of performance and sound quality. Used properly, the ikura will provide you with years of musical enjoyment.
