Pro-Ject RPM 1 Carbon
High-tech materials, outboard motor, and with Sumiko Rainier MM cartridge installed
RPM-1 Carbon utilizes a lot of innovations and enhancements. A low resonance chassis holds a newly designed inverted platter bearing with ceramic ball for further reduced rumble. An outboard 15V AC motor is smoothly driven using an ultra-precision AC generator with DC power supply for further enhanced speed stability.
A completely new designed S-shaped tonearm tube is made from carbon fiber, aluminum and resin. Using a complex three-step process with heat treatment and 100 bar 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 antiskating mechanism and a TPE-damped counterweight. The turntable ships with the Sumiko Rainier MM cartridge installed.
All ingredients add up to a miracle in sound for the price and ultra-stylish look!
