Pro-Ject RPM 5 Carbon with Sumiko BluePoint No. 2 Cartridge

Belt drive with carbon tonearm and acrylic platter.

This is a new old stock (NOS) unit at an unbeatable price. As belts deteriorate over time, we are including a brand-new Pro-Ject belt at no extra cost. 

The RPM 5 Carbon with 9"cc EVO carbon tonearm utilizes a radical concept with a lot of innovations that originate from its big brother RPM 9 Carbon. A low resonance chassis holds a newly designed inverted platter bearing with ceramic ball for further reduced rumble. The acoustically inert platter is made from acrylic. An outboard 15V AC motor is smoothly driven using an ultra-precision AC generator with DC power supply for further enhanced speed stability. The classy 9"cc Evo tonearm, which is made from carbon fiber, is suitable for any high-quality MM or MC cartridge. A TPE-damped counterweight eliminates unwanted resonances. All ingredients add up to a miracle in sound for the price. Its ultra-stylish look is available in 3 exclusive high-gloss finishes.
