About
Pro-Ject Audio Systems
Pro-Ject Audio Systems are widely recognised as one of the finest turntable manufacturers in the world. Their mission is simply to produce the best sounding stereo analogue components at the most competitive prices possible. The current series spans a wide range of price points, with a variety of products targeted to key demographics or to accommodate the modern listener’s unique requirements.
In 2016, Pro-Ject marked their 25th anniversary year with the release of a turntable that combined traditional styling with modern technology; showing their innate ability to keep turntables fresh and interesting at a time when popularity of the vinyl format was at a previously unprecedented level. The Classic proudly sits in the middle of a multi-award winning range of turntables that manage to combine sound performance with the latest technologies and unrivalled style at every level.
Pro-Ject are also obsessed with the importance of stereo playback systems. With modern audio systems often bringing speakers either very close together or into a single enclosure, the real impact and importance of true hi-fi stereo is being lost. That’s why everything Pro-Ject create is made with pure stereo applications in mind; bringing back the true emotional importance of music to audio enthusiasts around the world.
Based in Vienna, Austria, all Pro-Ject Audio Systems turntables are made by a highly skilled workforce with great skill, care and attention in their central-European factory.

2Xperience SB S-Shape

The 2Xperience SB S-Shape takes all the same innovations and improvements of the 2 Xperience SB design, but utilises a brand new S-Shape tonearm to give vinyl enthusiasts a more versatile high-end record player.

The S-Shape tonearm is made of a special alloy of aluminium with very high internal damping properties, for reduced resonance. The attractive bearing design allows for pin-point mounting of the premium vertical race bearings, while the horizontal ball bearings are rigidly mounted yet easily adjustable. The rotational anti-skate mechanism is inspired by the anti-skate system used on the flagship Signature 12 tonearm.

One of the principle benefits of the new tonearm is found in the high-quality detachable headshell. The 2Xperience SB S-Shape is designed for vinyl audiophiles who use multiple cartridges to suit different records (i.e. Mono recordings) or types of music. The ability to change headshells and cartridges also allows for a more optimal mass setting for each cartridge. A wide variety of Pro-Ject Audio Systems and Ortofon headshells are fully compatible with this S-Shape tonearm.

The S-Shape tonearm is precision engineered and polished to a meticulously high standard, which strikingly contrasts against the turntable’s gloss black plinth. The sound stage delivered by the 2Xperience SB S-Shape is wide and deep, with a clear (yet powerful) low-end.

The 2Xperience SB turntable has a large plinth, high-quality main bearing and thick, vinyl-topped sandwich platter. The new precision motor is driven by an efficient DC power supply and regulated by a built-in electronic speed changer. So not only does the neatly integrated speed control offer easy switching between 331/3 and 45RPM, but it also acts as an AC generator for the motor to ensure a clean and stable power signal.

An acrylic dust cover, silver screw-on record clamp and expertly engineered conical feet finish off the 2Xperience SB S-Shape to the highest possible standard.
