    And Music Hall too, I wonder if Roy Hall is retiring (or for that matter Antony Michaelson).

    EDIT: I see at the very bottom of the release it does say MF founder Antony Michaelson will now retire.

    Music Hall and Musical Fidelity aren't merely complimentary lines to Pro-Ject, but in many cases direct competitors.

    Interesting to see how this shakes out. I wonder if it was done to shut MH or MF down and assume their distribution channels.

    Hey Byron! Thanks for posting this.

    I’ve had products from both manufacturers. I would weight my “likes” to the Musical Fidelity products overall, but Pro-Ject has developed some interesting products recently.

    Well I wonder what this means to the desirability and sellability of my Musical Fidelity Nuvista M3 integrated? They are always going to be scarce, as production was limited to 5000 units. But I wonder what people are going to think of them now?

    Isn't almost all of the MH stuff made by Project anyway?

    I don't think that the lamentable fates of, e.g., the Advent and Altec brands hurt the resale value or the desirability of the heritage products from those brands.

    I believe it is with a little tweak here and there. I think the likelihood of them slowly closing MH is higher than MF. Musical Fidelity is clearly a step up, both in build and technology IMO. I think they will keep MF separate for a while.
