With its brand-new tonearm, bearing and motor, the Project RPM1 Carbon isn't so much evolutionary as revolutionary!

BRAND-NEW CARBON FIBRE TONEARM DESIGN


Although this is an impressively engineered turntable throughout, the new design of tonearm deserves special mention. The 8.6", S-shaped tonearm is constructed from carbon fibre, aluminium and resin, using special heat and pressure processes for maximum rigidity. This rigidity helps convey the music more accurately as there's also reduced arm resonance. In short, the music sounds tighter, punchier and more detailed than before. Further highlights include counterweight damping for reduced distortion and magnetic anti-skating - so no more fiddly weights and wires!

ISOLATED MOTOR UNIT FOR AUDIOPHILE STANDARD SPEC

Other than the tonearm, one of the most striking features of the Pro-Ject RPM 1 Carbon has always been the separate motor unit. This means that noise and vibration from the motor doesn't interfere with the delicate pickup area, via the shared plinth. The RPM 1 Carbon features a new, ultra-precision DC-driven AC generator motor, giving ultra-low vibration and maximum speed stability. The motor housing uses thick damping at its base, further isolating the support from mechanical vibration. Another recent addition to the RPM1 Carbon is the introduction of a hardwearing, inverted platter bearing with ceramic ball. It may seem like a small thing, but all these details add up to make the RPM1 Carbon the class-leading turntable it is. For ease of use, the power switch is located directly on top of the motor unit.

FACTORY FITTED ORTOFON 2M RED CARTRIDGE

The final flourish to this irresistible turntable is the inclusion of an Ortofon 2MRed cartridge. Usually valued at around £85 on its own, it's a fantastic bonus to have this bundled in with the turntable. With its tipped elliptical-shaped stylus, it provides a balanced and distortion-free sound that's also kind to your records in terms of its low wear rate.

For true music lovers, the sound of vinyl simply doesn't get any better at this price.
