Xtension 9 is a high-class audiophile turntable that offers superlative vinyl performance from a compact luxurious turntable/tone arm configuration. The Xtension 9 chassis is made from ultra dense MDF, which gives high mass and is non-resonant. Unique magnetic feet decouple the main plinth from its base. These feet effectively isolate the weighty 16 kg total turntable mass from outer vibration creating a combination of “mass loaded” principle and “floating turntable” design.

Instead of a pure metal platter, Xtension 9 uses an aluminium alloy, which is damped with thermoplastic elastomers (TPE). Vinyl records are glued to the top (which act as a perfect mat) and baked to create a “sandwich” before precision balancing it.

The final product subsequently benefits from a wonderful resonance-free, heavy platter, which runs ultra-silently on an inverted ceramic bearing (ball & plate) with magnetic suspension. This virtually reduces the platter-mass, so that it “floats” on the bearing, with the lowest rumble possible.

Xtension 9 also features a quartz-generated high precision electronic speed regulation (Speed Box) with microprocessor control. An absolutely clean AC power is generated, which leads directly into the built-in synchronous motor. Decoupling from interference, quartz regulation, and dedicated filter circuit gives a far better speed stability for smooth and undisturbed motor operation. This results in significant sound improvement through superior motor smoothness and adds convenience because speed change between 33 & 45 can be done electronically.

Superpack Upgrade
The optional Superpack upgrade includes a Sumiko Blue Point Special EVO Cartridge at a significantly reduced price. The evolution of the ever-popular Blue Point Special, the EVO III raises the performance bar even higher at this highly competitive price point. Its tonal balance is remarkably smooth, exhibiting a fundamental richness and overall warmth without sacrificing musical detail and resolution.
