Pro-Ject 2 Xperience Classic Turntable in Olive
The Xperience Classic sets a new standard in terms of cost versus performance. The precision balanced resonance-optimized MDF platter weighs in at a substantial 4.4 pounds and features sandwich construction using a vinyl top layer. The platter’s chrome-plated stainless steel axle rests on a Teflon bearing plate in a bronze bearing housing. The MDF plinth sits upon three height adjustable Sorbothane™ damped aluminum cone shaped feet providing easy leveling. Additionally, the low-noise motor is decoupled from the plinth which further reduces unwanted vibration and resonances. A 9 inch full carbon-fiber tonearm tube with integrated headshell is pre-mounted with a Sumiko Blue Point No. 2 cartridge. The tonearm also features an inverted thrust bearing with two hardened stainless steel points resting in sapphire thrust pads to maximize the cartridges’ performance. Additionally, the tonearm allows for easy adjustment of the stylus rake angle (VTA), azimuth and overhang, greatly optimizing analog playback performance Detachable RCA interconnects included.

"...I have seriously spent the last two weeks buying records 'cause this thing sounds so damned good!"
Pro-Ject 2 Xperience Classic Features:
Available finishes: Mahogany or olive veneer and piano-lacquered black.
The turntable is supplied with a Sumiko Blue Point No.2 high-output moving coil cartridge ($299 value).
A quiet running AC motor with a two-step pulley drives the platter's outside edge via a belt.
The motor is decoupled from the plinth to reduce vibration transmission.
The resonance-optimised platter is a fine-balanced medium density fibres/flat-ground layer of vinyl sandwich construction
The platter's chrome-plated stainless-steel axle runs on a Teflon bearing plate in a sintered bronze bearing housing.
Female RCA jacks allow for cable swapping, a standard cable is provided.
External power supply avoids potential electro-mechanical interference.

Tonearm 9cc Details:
The headshell and armtube are fashioned from a single piece of carbon-fibre.
Conical armtube avoids standing wave reflections.
Inverted tonearm bearing comprises four hardened stainless tips in ABEC7 spec ballraces.
Rings provide very solid arm bearing housings. The outside ring is open to avoid resonances.
Design of counterweight effectively counteracts unwanted resonances.
The counterweight supplied is suitable for cartridges weighing between 6 - 10g
Counterweight shaft lowered to record level reduces cantilever forces and dynamic wow when playing warped records.
Solid armbase permits accurate height adjustment of armtube and VTA (vertical tracing angle).
Single-screw fixing of armtube allows rotation for easy adjustment of needle azimuth despite fixed headshell.
Silicone-damped armlift can be adjusted to suit working height of the arm.
The internal wiring consists of flexible high-purity copper from the headshell right through to the gold-plated phono sockets.
