Pro-Ject Audio Systems Xtension 12 Turntable / Record Player
- Regular price £3,499.00
The Xtension 12 was introduced as Pro-Ject Audio System's first "money-no-object" turntable, having originally been designed to celebrate the company's 20th anniversary. Bringing together 20+ years of experience in designing turntables, Xtension 12 puts Pro-Ject firmly on the map as a true high-end analogue brand.
The Xtension 12's structure uses a combination of the popular 'mass-loaded' and 'floating turntable' design principles. Most high-end designs tend to employ one of these principles, but the Xtension 12 uses both. It does this by placing the large MDF chassis, which is filled with metal sand (making it very high-mass and anti-resonant), onto four powerful magnetic feet, effectively "floating" the heavy turntable above the stand on which it sits.
The platter used on the Xtension 12 is precision-balanced and made from a purpose-chosen metal alloy, which has then been damped on the inside with Sorbothane®. The top of the platter is finished with recycled vinyl records, which acts as the perfect playback platform for your records - without the need for an extra mat. The result is a resonance-free, heavy platter that runs ultra-silently on an inverted ceramic ball-bearing thanks to some added magnetic suspension.
Operation of the Xtension 12 is made effortlessly simple by the integrated speed control. Providing a clean, regulated power signal to the high-grade motor, the built-in speed control allows for easy switching between 33, 45 and 78RPM speeds. The useful step-function, also allows you to fine-tune the speed incrementally for absolutely perfect playback.
The Xtension 12 is sold with Pro-Ject's popular 12CC Evolution tonearm pre-installed. Constructed from carbon-fibre, the armtube is efficiently designed to lead parasitic vibrations away from the cartridge and into the heavy anti-resonant assembly, which guarantees precise cartridge tracking. For added isolation from the chassis, the 12CC Evolution tonearm is also mounted onto a sheet of Sorbothane®.
With its true high-end specifications, the Xtension 12 is capable of delivering a toe-tapping musical performance that belies the price. To help complete the package, the turntable is also supplied with a removable dust cover, premium output cable and a heavy-weight record puck.
