Pro-Ject PerspeX Turntable
Pro-Ject's PerspeX turntable is an enhancement of the discontinued Perspective. It features the 9cc Evolution one-piece carbon tonearm, a magnetic bearing, outboard motor, and a sleek acrylic plinth. The magnetic bearing virtually eliminates friction in the bearing well, optimizing platter speed and dropping the noise floor. The carbon armtube is acoustically dead, so the delicate audio signal passes through free of interference. Stunning in appearance and astounding in sonic performance, the PerspeX raises the bar for reasonably priced audiophile-grade turntables. Listening tests showed that metal springs and sub-chassis limit the sonic possibilities of our subchassis turntable classic Perspective. With the 6 perspeX we cut our own path: The sub-chassis is made out of ´Corean´ which shows no resonances at all and this assembly is supported by magnetic power instead of metal springs providing excellent decoupling. The result was phenomenal, so we decided to combine this ultimate turntable design with our new High-End tone-arm Pro-Ject ´9cc Evolution´. As a conclusion, the revolutionary decoupling concept and the mechanical tone-arm masterpiece show outstanding abilities in fi ne dynamics and push the limits of analogue audio one step further. User ManualBrochureHi-Fi News Nice new speX Pro-Ject 6 PerspeX By Steve Harris, September 2008 "...One of the most attractive of the many and varied Pro-Ject players. Its unusual combination of semi-isolated subchassis, acrylic baseplate, heavy non-sealing lid and vinyl faced MDF platter, held together (or apart) by generous amounts of rubbery Sorbothane, seems to produce and enjoyable and essentially vice-free sonic character, even if it lacks some precision and drive."
