Pro-Ject The Classic SB Turntable

The Classic SB is an upgraded version of The Classic, an EISA award-winning turntable. 

Featuring a Sumiko Blue Point No.2 cartridge, the Classic SB offers a leap forward in sound quality. Other key improvements include electronic speed control, as well as the Leather It mat and top-grade Clamp It, which enhance stability and reduce noise. 

The Classic SB comes in three different finishes (Walnut, Rosenut, and Eucalyptus). With a retail price of only $1,499.00, the Classic SB offers over $600 worth of improvements at a price that is only $400 more than the Classic!

The Classic SB combines timeless aesthetics with innovative high-end technology

Using a compact, simple, and elegant form factor, The Classic SB is an homage to the traditional wooden-frame design established by the famous turntable manufacturers of the 50’s and 60’s.  With the combination of an improved belt-drive design and a low-noise AC synchronous motor, the high precision DC-driven frequency generator provides ultimate speed stability at both 33 and 45 rpm. A technologically advanced metal and MDF sub-chassis is suspended by TPE balls to effectively decouple the completely redesigned 9” carbon fiber and aluminum composite tonearm and TPE-dampened aluminum platter from ambient vibration.
