Pro-Ject Xpression Carbon Classic in Black
Turntable Features:Available finishes. Mahogany or olive veneer and piano-lacquered black
A quiet running AC motor with a two-step pulley drives the hub and platter via a flat-ground belt.
The medium density fibre plinth stands on three height-adjustable rubber-damped aluminium cones.
The motor is decoupled from the plinth to reduce vibration transmission.
The resonance-optimised platter is a sandwich construction utilising the hub, a fine-balanced aluminium platter and a cork mat (a standard felt mat is supplied also).
The platter's low-tolerance chrome-plated stainless-steel axle runs on a polished ball bearing in a brass bearing housing.
Connection to the phono input of the amplifier can be made with connecting cables of your taste through the gold plated phono sockets and earth screw. A standard cable is provided.
External power supply avoids potential electro-mechanical interference.

Conical carbon-fibre armtube avoids standing wave reflections.
Low mass aluminium headshell securely glued to armtube.
The inverted bearings consist of four hardened stainless steel points bearing in sapphire cushes.
Flexible counterweight shaft avoids vibration at undesirable frequencies.
Solid armbase permits accurate height adjustment of armtube and VTA (vertical tracing angle).
The counterweight supplied is suitable for cartridges weighing between 7 - 12g . An alternative counterweight for cartridges weighing between 4 - 7g is available as an accessory part.
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.
