Manual turntable with build in Pro-Ject Speed Box SE
Pro-Ject's Xtension 12 incorporates over 20 years of experience in turntable design and manufacture. The Xtension 12 represents their latest technological efforts to address mass-decoupling and resonance reduction. Beginning with the mass-loaded magnetically floated sub-chassis and the precision balanced sandwich alloy platter (recycled vinyl/alloy), the foundation of this system weighs in at a super-heavy 55lbs. Additionally, Pro-Ject employs magnetic decoupling feet to thwart airborne or mechanical vibration from disturbing playback. This mass and isolation creates an environment of extremely low resonance allowing music to emerge from an ultra-silent black background. An AC motor with a two-step pulley drive with Electronic Speed Control maintains perfect pitch and rhythm resulting in inaudible wow, flutter and noise. There's even a built-in spirit level to assist setting the height-adjustable magnetic footers.
Further reducing noise and vibration is the isolated Sorbothane mounting board for the 12" carbon-fiber tonearm. The conical arm and unified headshell are fabricated from a single piece of carbon fiber to avoid problems associated with standing wave reflections. Single screw fixing of the armtube allows for easy rotation for adjustment of needle azimuth. Additionally the arm is fully adjustable for VTA. A high-performance 123cm phono interconnect cable is included.
Optional SuperPack includes Sumiko Blackbird Cartridge at a significantly reduced price.$4,499.00Xtension 12 Evolution Turntable - 3 Colors Available - SuperPack OptionBuy Now
Pro-Ject Audio Systems sticks to a simple philosophy: easy to use equipment with high quality sound at astonishing value. Pro-Ject turntables are built sleek and durable, offering modern style and excellent sound for the casual audiophile, and this value extends to dollars and cents: Pro-Jectís products are as no-frills as their philosophy.
Founded in 1990 by Austrian Heinz Lichtenegger, Pro-Ject manufactures a wide range of turntables--often quoted as ideal entry-level models--and audio equipment inside their two European plants.
The Pro-Ject Debut Carbon DC turntable line features one-piece carbon tonearms, weighted platters, magnetic cartridges and a satisfying range of color. Though this turntable has seen many improvements over the years, such as an increased platter diameter, extra touches such as thick O-rings for more stability, pre-fitted cartridges, and a high-gloss plinth that competes with high-end models for style, the price has remained firmly affordable.
The Debut Carbon Esprit SB DC Pro-Ject turntable steps it up a notch on all counts. An acrylic platter further reduces rumble, the synchronous AC motor is screwed to the plinth through two rubber pads for a more rigid mounting, and for style nothing compares at this price point for the piano gloss finishes.
While true audiophiles might prefer to stick to analogue whenever they can, bringing your turntable and vinyl on the road with you isnít a great option. Take the music with you anyway through Pro-Jectís Record Box E, which makes it possible to transfer your favorite vinyl to digital all on your own, and itís as easy to use as the rest of their offerings. The Phono Box from Pro-Ject is an equally flexible piece for interfacing turntable to preamplifier, integrated amplifier, or receiver. Like all of Pro-Jectís offerings, both boxes stay true to trademark streamlined visual appeal and incredible piece value.
