The RM-9.2 is a new step into affordable high performance from Pro-Ject. This table is a mass loaded design with a thick acrylic platter and clamp assembly set on top of an inverted thrust bearing. This gives the table great speed stability as it raises the center of gravity of the rotating platter. To reduce motor noise, the motor is physically separated from the base and new opposing magnetic feet are employed. The tonearm is the new conical 9cc EVO carbon fiber arm tube with integrated headshell and superior bearing assembly resulting in the ability to use more massive and rigid (lower compliant) moving coil cartridges. A brass record clamp is included. High Gloss Grey finish.
Absolute Sound Review Sonically, the combination is remarkable in ways that hold strong appeal for both the music lover and the audiophile in me. The Sumiko is notably easy and relaxed, yet also rhythmically incisive and dynamically explosive. It is warm and rich, yet also detailed and transparent.
The Pro-Ject RM-9.2 and Sumiko Celebration II are easily one of the most musically engaging and satisfying setups I’ve had the pleasure to evaluate. They’re a great value, too. Mark it, Dude!
