Usually, most Music Hall turntables offer pretty good value. I own the mmf-7 (not the 7.1). It has things like an external, isolated motor, a nice acrylic platter, double-deck base, a nice cartrige that comes with it, ajustable VTA (something the Regas lack at this price point), a dustcover, and last but no least, stunning looks in high-gloss piano balck finish.
The 7.1 has the newer carbon fiber arm.
The previous 7 has the Project 9 series alu arm (this was found on $ 2,500 pro-ject tables). I doubt you will hear the difference.
You can even upgrade buy adding the pro-ject Speed Box II psu.
I sincerely think the mmf-7 is a no-brainer for not much money.
