Understanding True Balanced Connections

All Pro-Ject turntables are balanced signal sources by their nature, but the ability to exploit this beneficial technology has traditionally only been available to more high-end or bespoke analogue systems. Pro-Ject’s True Balanced Connection concept intends to extend these benefits to a broader variety of vinyl enthusiasts than ever before.

The interconnect cable between a record player and a phono stage is prone to pick up noise on the way. That noise and interference can stem from a lot of unavoidable sources, such as household applicances, wi-fi and bluetooth devices, other power cables and audio amplifiers. Unshielded (i.e. RCA) interconnects can amplify the picked-up noise and make it audible through your speakers, interfering with the pure musical signal.

The benefits of True Balanced Connections therefore include:

Interference-free signal transmission

Increased dynamics

Improved signal to noise ratios

When running true balanced connections between the turntable and phono stage, all of these benefits reveal themselves in a more inviting musical performance that's free of noise. Pro-Ject produce a variety of turntables, cables and phono stages that can all be combined to benefit from balanced signal transfer.
