RPM 9 Carbon

After an extensive period of research, development and testing the RPM 9 Carbon from Pro-Ject Audio Systems is now here! It features an extra heavy mass loaded chassis which is decoupled from its surface using magnetic feet. The polished 7.2kg acoustically inert aluminium platter has TPE damping, a vinyl top and inverted ceramic main bearing delivering absolutely stable speeds along with extra low rumble.

To further enhance the RPM 9 Carbon the extra heavy outboard motor also consists of a precise motor control allowing for easy switching between 33 and 45 RPM.

All of this partnered with Pro-Ject’s no compromise 9cc Evolution tonearm ensures perfect tracking and pure sound quality even with the most demanding of cartridges.

The RPM 9 Carbon is delivered with a 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 Quintet Bronze or Quintet Black to this model (Normally not supplied with a cartridge) saving £190/£254 off the cartridge price. Alternatively If you're looking for a recommendation, please give us a call to discuss your options.
