Metallica Limited Edition Turntable Announced
As is the case with a bolt of lightning, the light is the first thing you notice with this turntable. Pro-Ject treats the deck’s surface with a mirror-finished metal contour, resulting in eye-catching reflections and a shape-shifting lustre. Notice, too, the glass platter. The high mass of glass boosts the deck’s overall solidity leading to tight and accurate playback speeds. The glass finish also keeps the Pro-Ject Metallic spinner’s graphics in full view when it’s not hugging vinyl.
Place a record on the Metallica’s platter, and your system benefits from one of Pro-Ject’s most sought after upgrade parts; the aluminium sub-platter. The diamond-cut sub-platter and pulley come standard on this deck, bringing increased mass and consequently additional damping of noise and unwanted resonances. The Austrian maker employs more aluminium for the S-shape tonearm’s base and bearing – you won’t find any plastic in the Pro-Ject Metallica’s critical parts – resulting in highly accurate tracking of the groove, which in the case of an LP, extends for about 500 meters each side.
