MT1 EVO Turntable is a Muarah flagship construction. Thanks to carefuly selected materials for subchassis and platter the sound is free from resonances and vibrations. Platter is a hybrid acrylic+steel combination. It sonically outperforms any solid design. MT1 EVO inherits all technical features from it’s predecessor MT1 but additionaly introduces new details of external appearance: record mat rosette as integral part of the platter and modified leveling konbs with acrylic inserts. As a standard MT1 EVO is equipped with high-end Mørch tonearm and phono cable. It places MT1 EVO in exclusive category of the best turntables on the market. It’s not only perfect mechanism. It’s piece of art!

MT2 has the most valuable features of MT1 but is much simpler and optimized in every detail. With MT1 shares Teflon bearing, multi layer acrylic main board and Muarah unique levelling system. Also the motor drive is of the same type: AC synchronous, but it’s now mounted in a separate heavy-weight housing in order to avoid vibrations. When put on sufficiently stiff and heavy stand made of concrete or thick wood it can results in vibration damping level close to MT1. MT2 is also more flexible in standard configuration thanks to easily adjustable arm board and can be equipped with many popular tonearms of effective length in 9 to 12” range. The platter is all acrylic 40mm thick and weights 3kg which is enough to ensure good level of RPM speed stability.

Unique subchassis damper filled by long-lived silicon oil. In standard suspended constructions even smallest thrown off heavy platter balance, leads to severe and sustained oscillation of entire suspended weight. This has two negative consequences: 1st: affects operation of the entire tonearm and phono cartridge suspension system, occasionally causing vinyl groove skipping. 2nd: problem during needle placement on the vinyl record surface, which causes some discomfort, and in some cases may even lead to damage of the fragile and pricey phono cartridge. Thanks to unique Muarah oil damper even heavily triggered platter oscillation is suppressed nearly immediately.
Discrete START/STOP touch sensor located under Muarah Logo. Green logo backlight is on when motor is running.
Teflon bearing with magnetic suspension provides silent bearing operation and longer life
Easy leveling system. Leveling procedure takes not more than 30 seconds without using special tools.
Easy armboard adjustment for 9 up to 12” tonearms
AUTO STOP feature automatically switches off motor after 50min. of operation. This ECO function prevents power wasting and extends turntable mechanics life when user forgets to switch off turntable when record ends. This can be useful also while listening records just before sleep. Auto Stop feature can be set ON or OFF by tiny switch located under motor housing.
“The Muarah MT-2 SE is a beautifully-made, well-designed one hell of a deck! Its price is considerable but close to half of it is the cost of the very interesting, versatile, easy, and pleasant-to-use Japanese Sorane SA-1.2 tonearm, which offers a rock-solid performance. The PSC speed controller paired with the InteliClamp® will increase the final figure on your bill even further, but it is a must-have upgrade.”
“The reviewed turntable did a very good job in terms of PRAT, one of the key aspects of blues. The bass was tight, fast, and quite dynamic (any restrictions in this area come from the recording/release), clearly marking the pulse of every track. If you’re a Dżem fan you know that what made their music so special was Rysio Riedel’s voice. Muarah conveyed it with clarity and precision, yet in a rich, full way with all its intricate features including this incredibly expressive and engaging way of communicating with listeners.”
“The MT-2 is a very nice, well-made turntable, which itself, without any upgrades, plays with a smooth, dense sound with a strong midrange. The pit is not particularly well controlled with it, although it doesn’t rumble; you can say it is “tube”. With the SA-750L arm I would use some liquid, not very light phono cart”
