Value-based belt-driven turntable with 10″ carbon fiber S-shaped tonearm and outboard motor!
RPM 3 Carbon utilizes revolutionary enhancements to improve the performance of the RPM series. A new, low resonance chassis holds an inverted platter bearing with a 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 enhanced speed stability.
The 10″ S-shaped tonearm tube is made from carbon fiber, aluminum and resin. A complex 3-step process uses heat treatment and 100 bar pressure to strengthen arm tube rigidity, maximize internal damping, and reduce resonances to a minimum. This process makes the tonearm suitable for MM or MC cartridges. Additional features are a magnetic anti-skating mechanism and a TPE-damped counterweight. All ingredients add up to a miracle in sound and an ultra-stylish look!
RPM 3 Carbon comes complete with a Sumiko Blue Point No. 2 MC cartridge. Offering exceptional performance and musicality, the latest generation Blue Point No. 2 sets a new standard in its price class. This MC cartridge features a moving coil design, high output, 2.5-mV, alloy cantilever, Blue Point-cut elliptical diamond stylus, and standard 1/2″ mounting.
Available in Gloss Black, Red, or White Finishes.
