I have a similar question on Dali loudspeaker in the other thread. This one is for Music Hall electronics.

 

  • How reputed is Music Hall? Which league does it belong to?
  • How would you rate Music Hall CD 25.2 and Music Hall A 25.2? Will it classify as budget equipment? Hi-fi or Premium?
  • How much does it cost in UK market? Are they good value for money?

 

TIA for your inputs.

Re: Music Hall electronics

AFAIK Roy Hall doesn't distribute his products in the UK.

 Pity really, given that as a true Scot he always has superb whisky in his room at shows...

Re: Music Hall electronics

Oh well, but I thought you would at least know about the product. Its the first time I came to know about availablity of this brand in my market, so know absolutely nothing about them. All I have been able to gather about them from my searches on net is - "they blow the others out of the water with the price to quality ratio of its equipment".

And no, I can't really take a few hours to go audition them, no not untill I am even 50% sure auditioning them will be worth.

Re: Music Hall electronics

Ok, here is the update Smile

So far what I've learned about these is - Music Hall is "legendry" for its Epos speakers and turntables, and they make some components that outperform other products in the same price range by a huge margin.

Ah, just waiting for some other folks to join in and throw their ideas.

Re: Music Hall electronics

Well, Roy is the Creek/Epos distributor in the US, and goes back a long way with Mike Creek. The turntables are made in the Czech Republic, so given that and the way they look no great surprises which company makes them, albeit to a Music Hall spec. The company also introduced Shanling to the USA, and indeed brought it to the attemtion of most people outside China as a result

No, the A25.2 only has four, plus a tape loop. Should be enough for most needs, though...
