Pro-Ject 2Xperience Classic or Music Hall mmf 7.1

Please help me to make a right choice between 2 TT: Pro-Ject 2 Xperience classic( very like the look) that could be with Ortofon 2M Bronze cart for $1299 or Nagaoka MP500 cart for $1700 and Music Hall MMF7.1 that comes with Goldring GL 2400 for $1525, price include cartridges. Local dealers do not have them as demos, so I can’t audition them.
I had auditioned Pro-ject RPM 9.2 with Ortofon 2MBlack and Music Hall mmf 5.1 with Goldring cart( what Goldring cart I don’t know). RPM sounds very sweet to my ears, but I don’t like the look. MMF 5.1 sounds also good , but not as good as Project 9.2, but I think the higher models with better cart could sound very decent.
Music Hall 7.1 futures a double plinth and stand alone motor, but does this make a real , noticeable difference in sound quality in comparison with single plinth and decoupled motor that Pro-ject Xperience has? I’m asking this question because the look of Project Xperience I love the most, but don’t want to compromise too much with the sound quality, as I already do with the RPM 9.2.
I like detailed, warm sound with solid bass, gentle, not harsh midrange and treble.
The rest of my system: amp YBA Integre DT, speakers Polk Audio LSi 15.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
Where are you finding the xperience deal with the ortofon bronze?
Find out if the motor hum issue has been resolved with Pro-Ject(not an easy task). The old joke was how do you eliminate motor noise/hum on a Pro-Ject? You sell it! The hum/noise is caused by a metal "collar" brace over the motor that would vibrate to due the adhesive(glue?)wearing out. There are several kits to fix this which are <$200 if you decide on a Pro-Ject. So my advice is go with the Music Hall but step up to the MMF 9.1 since it's an iconic budget deck. This will make it easier to resell.
I found this deal -xperience with ortofon bronze in Commercial Electronics in Vancouver, BC

Aren't the Music Hall turntables rebadged Pro-ject turntables?

Rar1-From what i've read I have not come across this issue with Music Hall tables. Maybe the motor assembly is slightly different or the MH plinths absorb the motor noise better? The only MH table I was considering was the flagship MMF-11(2 motors)but I was unable to find the discount I wanted, so I purchased a one owner Rega P9.
Rockstream, I have been going through the same exercise as you on choosing a turntable. I ended up going with the Music Hall MMF 7.1 with the Music Hall Mojo cartridge (made by Ortofon). Unlike the Pro-ject Xperience the motor on the MMF 7.1 is completely isolated from the table. I couldn't be happier with this setup. It sounds wonderful. Down the road I might try an Ortofon 2M Black, but the Mojo is really a great sounding cartridge.
I think you made a wise choice. The MH tables are very respectable at their price points. I'm not very big on aftermarket tweaks, but IMO, the Herbies mat can make a very significant improvement to MH tables. Send it back if you don't like it. Enjoy your new table and sorry about asking you to spend more money - But it's just a little bit.
I have been using a MMF-7.1 for about 3 years now and am very please with it. I run a 2M Black and its avery good combination.
