Xtension 9 Super Pack

The Xtension 9 is an ideal solution for anyone who is looking for exceptional sound quality with a compact foot print. 

The Xtension 9 incorporates all of Pro-Ject's 20 years experience in turntable design.

Chassis
The chassis is made from MDF which gives a high mass and is non-resonant. But in addition the turntable also uses magnetic feet, which decouple the main plinth from its base. The result of this combination is a merging of the influential 'mass loaded' and 'floating turntable' design principles.

Platter
Instead of the old-standard adoption of pure metal for a main platter, Pro-Ject researched and uncovered a perfect alloy material, which has then be damped on the inner side with thermo plastic elastomers (TPE). Taking this base structure, they've then glued recycled Vinyl records to the top (which act as a perfect mat) and baked this 'sandwich' before precision balancing it. The Xtension 9 subsequently benefits from a wonderfully resonance-free, heavy platter, that runs ultra-silently on an inverted ceramic ball-bearing, with magnetic suspension.

Tonearm
The Xtension 9 comes pre-fitted with the Pro-Ject 9cc Evolution Tonearm. Constructed from carbon-fibre, the armtube is efficiently designed to lead parasitic vibrations away from the cartridge into the mounting board which guarantees the precise tracking of the record grooves by the needle and also facilitates fine adjustment of vertical and horizontal tracing.

Cartridge
Usually worth £649, the Ortofon Quintet Black comes pre-fitted to the Xtension 9. Graced with a Nude Shibata diamond, the Quintet Black is considered one of the best stylus profiles available, mounted on a high-performance Boron cantilever. The Shibata’s slim, highly polished profile allows an exceedingly wide contact area to the walls of the groove and ensures detailed and pure reproduction through out the spectrum, including even the most high frequency groove details.

Finally, the Xtension 9 is also supplied with a beautiful dustcover with adjustable hinges, and is available in three high-gloss lacquer finishes.
