RPM 10 Carbon: Beautiful, clever design with ultimate high-end sound quality

Thanks to extensive research and development, Pro-Ject has raised its classic RPM design to an even higher level. The RPM 10 Carbon uses a new extra-heavy chassis. It features a special CNC-machined MDF base with resin-coated steel pellets to form an extra-heavy and precise sandwich construction. A special complex heat treatment and carbon surface coating ensures superior low resonance levels. The mass-loaded chassis is effectively decoupled from its surface using magnetic feet. Combined with a new special polished aluminium platter with internal TPE damping and a vinyl layer on top, the inverted ceramic main bearing delivers an absolutely stable turntable speed with extra-low rumble. The heavy outboard motor unit is equipped with precise motor control and features a built-in switch between 33 and 45 RPM. Last but not least, the non-compromise 10“ Evo tonearm with conical carbon-fibre arm tube and inverted bearing design ensures perfect tracking, even with demanding cartridges. Highly flexible top-grade copper internal wiring is used. Delivered with Ground it Carbon equipment base & top-grade 5P phono cable ´Connect it CC´ with RCA plugs (XLR as an option). Acrylic dustcover Cover it 1 is also available.
