$1,269.99

For the new collector or an experienced audiophile, the Pro-Ject RPM 3 Carbon turntable with Ortofon 2M silver cartridge is an excellent way to get the best out of your records.

Description

The Pro-Ject RPM 3 Carbon utilizes evolutionary enhancements to improve the performance of RPM series: a low resonance chassis holds an inverted platter bearing with ceramic ball for further reduced rumble. An outboard 15V AC motor is smoothly driven using an ultra precision AC generator with DC power supply for further enhanced speed stability.

A 10“ S-shaped tonearm tube is made from carbon fibre, aluminum and resin. Using a complex 3-step process with heat treatment and 100bar pressure, arm tube rigidity is strengthened, internal damping is maximized and resonances are reduced to a minimum. This makes the tonearm also suitable for MC cartridges. Additional features are a magnetic antiskating mechanism and a TPE-damped counterweight.

One in stock, available in high gloss white.
