The Pro-Ject RPM-1 Carbon Turntable utilises many of the innovations and enhancements from Pro-ject Audio and their research department: A low resonance chassis holds a newly designed inverted platter bearing with ceramic ball for further reduced rumble, a critical enhancement for furthering sound quality. An outboard 15V AC motor is smoothly driven using an ultra-precision AC generator with DC power supply for further enhanced speed stability. Quality and design at a great price.
A completely new designed S-shaped tonearm tube is made from carbon fibre, aluminium and resin. Using a complex 3-step process with heat treatment and 100bar pressure, arm tube rigidity is strengthened, internal damping is maximized and resonances are reduced to a minimum. This makes the tonearm also suitable for MC cartridges.
Additional features are a new magnetic anti-skating mechanism and a TPE-damped counterweight. All ingredients add up to a miracle in sound for the price and ultra-stylish look!
