Rev Up the Performance of Your Analog Setup with the Pro-Ject RPM 9 Carbon Turntable: Features Nine-Inch Carbon-Fiber Tonearm, Advanced Plinth, Mass-Loaded Subchassis with Magnetic Feet

True to Pro-Ject's audiophile heritage, the company's RPM 9 Carbon turntable serves as an ultra-quiet analog source that radically pushes the performance boundaries in its price class. Its pre-mounted, nine-inch, carbon-fiber EVO tonearm tracks even the most challenging records with an effortless smoothness, producing life-like dynamics, subterranean bass, and holographic imagery.

The first time you take RPM Carbon 9 for a spin, you'll understand why The Absolute Sound's veteran critic Neil Gader wrote, "Without qualification, the RPM 9 Carbon is a terrific package, certain to give a great many lucky owners years of vinyl-spinning thrills." The use of hard resin-coated steel pellets that form the super-rigid construction of the heavy, sandwiched MDF plinth and implementation of decoupling magnetic feet mean RPM 9 boasts a platform that protects vinyl playback from resonances that otherwise smear transients and drain music of vital energy. RPM 9's massive, specially polished aluminum platter is further damped with Pro-Ject's proprietary thermoplastic elastometers (TPE). A 5P Connect It phono cable with RCA plugs is here, too.

Pro-Ject founder Heinz Lichtenegger's obsession with transparency and intelligent design can further be witnessed via RPM 9's ultra-precision outboard 15V AC motor – complete with massive steel base. The motor also comes equipped with a handy 33/45RPM switch and built-in Speed Box control. A complex 1500-psi heat-treatment process done at the factory significantly strengthened the conical carbon-fiber 9" EVO tonearm – which provides first-rate tracking with both demanding moving-magnet and moving-coil cartridges. Leaving no stone unturned, RPM 9 utilizes a specialized ceramic ball in conjunction with its inverted platter bearing to drastically reduce noise and mechanical rumble. It's all part of Pro-Ject's commitment to removing every barrier between you and the music you love. 100% Music Direct Guaranteed.

"Imaging and soundstage stability are excellent with a wide comfortable spread of images across the stage. String sections, winds, brass are all nicely differentiated from another and there's little to no image smearing."
– Neil Gader, The Absolute Sound

"Like many Pro-Jects before it, the RPM 9 Carbon is unmistakably authoritative and full-bodied in its stride..."
