"…The sound of the RM-5 SE/Blue Point 2 combination was very nicely balanced (the BP No. 2 is notably warmer and richer than earlier versions of this cartridge), and is marked by a remarkable rhythmic incisiveness. I noticed this before I'd even spent serious time with setup…It's not so much that this Pro-Ject lets you hear more detail, or that I heard things in the track I hadn't before, but that its rhythmic incisiveness somehow heightens the sensation of a guy playing the guitar…swift transient attack and nice overall dynamic range." – Wayne Garcia, The Absolute Sound, March 2008
Same features and specifications as the Pro-Ject RM-5 turntable but offered in a “value oriented” performance package featuring a new Sandwich platter made from MDF with integrated vinyl mat. This platter provides constrained layer damping at a price point never thought possible before. Also included is a Sumiko Blue Point No.2 high-output moving coil cartridge which is factory mounted for your convenience.
