High-Performance Analog Playback at an Affordable Price
Pro-Ject's RPM-9.2 turntable takes a bold step into high performance at an affordable price. The resonance-optimized platter relies on a sandwich construction utilizing an acrylic platter weighing 7.7 lbs. and a brass record puck. This is set on top of an inverted thrust bearing, which gives the table great speed stability as it raises the center of gravity of the rotating platter.
A quiet-running AC motor with a two-step pulley drives the platter's outside edge via a belt. To reduce motor noise, the motor is physically separated from the base, mounted in a separate metal housing to eliminate vibration transmission. The three 'opposing magnet' height-adjustable feet that fit into the underside of the medium-density, granulate-filled fiber plinth provide support without physical contact via a magnetic field. This provides an ingenious way of isolating the assembly from room-borne vibration. A supplied spirit level allows easy adjustment.
The inverted bearing uses a stainless-steel axle carrying a ceramic ball on which the ceramic bearing plate runs. The central metal block not only optimizes the center of gravity, but it also damps the main bearing.
Connection to the phono input of the amplifier can be made with any connecting cable you choose through the gold plated RCA phono jacks and ground screw. For convenience, a standard tonearm cable is included. AN external power supply avoids potential electro-mechanical interference.
New 9cc Evolution Tonearm
A new 9" tonearm, the 9cc Evolution, incorporates a conical carbon fiber arm tube with integrated headshell made of a single piece of carbon fiber and new ultra-rigid bearing assembly to give you the ability to use more massive and lower compliant moving coil cartridges.
The headshell and conical armtube are formed from a single piece of carbon fiber for maximum rigidity and resonance control. The armtube stills allows azimuth adjustments, despite the fixed headshell. The vertical tracking angle is also adjustable. Nominal speeds are 33-1/3 rpm and 45 rpm.
Chassis-mounted female RCA connectors on the rear panel allow you to use any single ended interconnects. A brass record clamp is included.
For an even better value, the RM-9.2 is also available in a special SuperPack that includes the critically acclaimed Sumiko Blue Point Special EVO III phono cartridge and Connect-it tonearm cable.
