Should be, though you may get some hum. Nothing for sale in the UK which takes your fancy?

Ah right. The only Music Hall

Ah right. The only Music Hall turntables I know of were all re-badged Pro-Ject Debuts, but I agree this one doesn't seem to be. If you read the manual it does state that the power supply is either 115V/60Hz (ie US mains) or 230V/50Hz (ie our mains). Maybe it's switchable.  Why not email them and ask.

There's a list of

There's a list of distributors in Europe. You would only need a plug adapter to use the ikura in the UK.

Good midfi stuff, nothing High End.

I just saw one yesterday at

I just saw one yesterday at my local hi-fi shop. It looks cool in person. It comes in white and black and the one I saw was in white. Comes with an Ortofon 2M Blue cartridge. Don't think you can go wrong for the price unless you have a lot of duties and taxes to pay for importing it.
