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.

The Evolution range of tonearms from Pro-Ject Audio Systems are some of the most coveted tonearms on the market. Available in 9", 10" and 12" lengths, the Evolution models offer flexibility, reliability and great sound for a competitive price.

The 12CC Evolution is based around a large, conical carbon fibre arm tube with integrated headshell. The one-piece design allows for minimal resonance, with the conical shape avoiding the potential for standing wave reflections. The arm tube is further designed to draw resonances away from the cartridge and into the heavy metal block, which surrounds the gimble bearing. This simple but efficient design protects the musical signal from any unwanted mechanical interference.

The gimble bearing assembly uses four ABEC7 specification ball-races, for optimal flexibility and minimal resistance. The result is a tonearm that can smoothly trace the record groove.

Behind the bearing assembly, the counterweight rod is lowered to reduce the force exerted on a cartidge during the playback of warped records, which can produce un-wanted dynamic 'Wow'. The counterweight itself is lined with a Thermo-Plastic Elastomer (TPE) compound, to eliminate resonances at the back of the tonearm. 

For accurate set-up of the attached cartridge, VTA and azimuth adjustment are easily accessible on the tonearm. 

The 12CC Evolution is a true high-end tonearm, and is capable of being partnered with some very high-end turntables. Its solid, reliable build combines with audiophile-grade features to provide a complete tonearm solution.
