RPM 10 Carbon: Beautiful and clever design with true high-end sound quality
After extensive research and development, Pro-Ject now lifts their classic RPM design to an even higher level. The RPM 10 Carbon uses a new extra-heavy chassis that features a special CNC-machined MDF plate, which incorporates hard resin coated steel pellets to form a heavy, precise sandwich construction. A special complex heat treatment and a carbon surface coating ensure superior low resonance levels. Magnetic feet effectively decouple the mass-loaded chassis. A polished aluminum platter with internal TPE damping and vinyl top layer, combined with the inverted ceramic main bearing, delivers an absolutely stable turntable speed with extra low rumble. The extra-heavy outboard motor unit is equipped with motor control and features a built-in switch between 33 & 45 rpm.
Last but not least, the no-compromise 10″ EVO tonearm with conical carbon-fiber arm tube and inverted bearing design ensures perfect tracking, even with demanding cartridges. Highly flexible, top-grade copper internal wiring is used.
The RPM 10 Carbon Superpack comes complete with a Sumiko Blackbird cartridge, representing a significant savings. Designed for exceedingly low noise levels, wide dynamic range and the highest possible fidelity, Blackbird is destined to become an analog classic. Each cartridge is assembled using time honored, labor intensive techniques, hand calibrated and critically auditioned to meet the most rigorous standards of consistency.
The RPM 10 Carbon is delivered with Ground it Carbon equipment base and top-grade 5P phono cable “Connect It CC” with RCA plugs (XLR as an option). An optional dust cover is available for the RPM 10 Carbon. Please use Cover It 1.
