BRAND: ProJect Audio

SERIES: RPM 3 CARBON
TYPE: Turntable

RPM 3 Carbon utilises 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.

 

OVERVIEW

A 10“ S-shaped tonearm tube is made from carbon fibre, aluminium and resin. Using a complex 3-step process with heat treatment and 100bar pressure,
arm tube rigidity is strenghtened, 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.
 
All ingredients add up to a miracle in sound for the price and ultra-stylish look!
