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.

For some years the legendary RPM series was one of the leading designs in analogue sound reproduction. The iconic RPM drop shaped base chassis resulted in a superior resonance characteristics compared to rectangular shaped chassis. Progressing from the foundations that the RPM 10 was built from, the years of research and development have benefited substantially in producing the RPM 10 Carbon.

The RPM 10 Carbon uses a new extra-heavy chassis. It features a special CNC-machined MDF base with resin coated steel pellets to form an extra-heavy and precise sandwich construction. A special complex heat treatment and carbon surface coating ensures superior low resonance levels. The mass-loaded chassis is effectively decoupled from its surface using magnetic feet.

Combined with a new special polished aluminium platter with internal TPE damping and a vinyl layer on top, the inverted ceramic main bearing delivers an absolutely stable turntable speed with extra-low rumble.

Motor
The new RPM heavy weight motor integrates an electronic DC/AC power generator to clean up generated noise usually associated with AC power. To further enhance the RPM 10 Carbon the extra heavy outboard motor also consists of a precise motor control allowing for easy switching between 33 and 45 RPM

Tonearm
The highly acclaimed 10”cc Evolution tonearm is made from a one piece conical tube of carbon fibre with an inverted bearing design which offers ultimate rigidity and internal damping to minimise all unwanted vibrations. The 10”cc Evolution tonearm’s design makes it suitable for almost any high quality MM and MC cartridges.

The RPM 10 Carbon comes with the Ground-IT Carbon base and a top grade 5P Connect-IT Phono CC cable with RCA plugs (An XLR option is also available to special order).

Please note: You can add the flagship Ortofon Cadenza Red or Cadenza Black to this model (Normally not supplied with a cartridge) saving £325/£725 off the cartridge price. Alternatively If you're looking for a recommendation, please give us a call to discuss your options.
