    Default Pro-Ject Audio Systems and Ortofon (+ News & Reviews) - At Musicraft (Derby)



    Musicraft is pleased to announce that we now also support Pro-Ject Audio Systems and Ortofon

    Pro-Ject Audio Systems



    Pro-Ject products are the result of an exemplary cooperation within a rapidly uniting Europe. For over fifty years record players have been designed and built at Pro-Ject's manufacturing facility in Litovel, situated to the east of Prague. This plant is one of the most advanced manufacturers of precision mechanics in the country. In cooperating with this company Pro-Ject Audio Systems, located in Vienna, found the ideal partner for their plans to produce the goods that they missed from amongst the vast flood of consumer hi-fi products - simple, uncluttered and utterly functional products. Pro-Ject Audio Systems is currently one of the world's leading suppliers of record players, with a range of models designed to satisfy all levels of expectation and budget. In many countries of the world customers can rely on competent service and support from Pro-Ject distributors well versed in analogue record reproduction technology. Pro-Ject products exhibit sonic performance beyond all expectations normally associated with their price. They are simple to use, maintenance free and will function reliably a lifetime long. They also offer extraordinary value for money.













    Ortofon



    A great Danish success story began in 1918

    In the beginning was the sound track…

    On the 9th of October 1918, the two Danish engineers, Axel Petersen (1887-1971) and Arnold Poulsen (1889-1952) founded the Electrical Phono Film Company with a few capable and foresighted businessmen who would support the organization financially.

    Their aim was to explore the possibility of high-class recording and developing one of the first synchronized sound film systems in the world. Under primitive conditions, the two Danish engineers and their small staff had to solve a number of what were considered insuperable problems.

    Ortofon today

    Today Ortofon is a fine mechanical powerhouse, which develops, manufactures and markets the world acclaimed Ortofon cartridges and components for the hearing aids industry.

    Our company has always been working with sound reproduction. Founded in Copenhagen, it initially made soundtracks for movies. In 1948 Ortofon developed its first moving coil cartridge, since then more than 300 different cartridges have been developed and manufactured, with our latest being MC A95 Anniversary cartridge.

    We benefit from being established in Denmark, a country recognized for its strong tradition in acoustics and its wealth of other high-end manufacturers, who make hearing aids and acoustic measurement equipment, in addition to all aspects of high-end audio.

    Ortofon worldwide

    Acoustics, materials, technology and micro mechanics are key competences in Ortofon's technological prowess. Research and development is done with the company's own engineers supported by a strong network of acoustic know-how and industrial design in Denmark.

    The products are sold worldwide through a network of more than 60 importers and Sales subsidiaries in the USA and in Japan.

    Ortofon is owned by Danish businessmen and employs a staff of 95 people. The Ortofon manufacturing unit in Nakskov in the south of Denmark has modern machinery combined with experienced operators, so human craftsmanship is delivered with uniform industrial quality.

    Growing the company

    Ortofon has developed significantly over the last 10 years and currently is in a phase where the use of the advanced technologies has opened for exciting new business opportunities within the Medical industry. This growth is driven, among other things, by investment in the new technology and new products. As a recognition of the company’s successful development and significant positive impact on local society, Helle Thorning-Schmidt, then-Prime Minister of Denmark, visited Ortofon factory on April 27th 2015.
    The company plans to continue growth and will increase focus on development and manufacturing of components to the Hearing Aids industries, not in the least Bone conductors. Ortofon is ISO 13485 certified with a scope "Manufacturing of components in plastic, rubber and metal for the medical device industry and manufacturing of Bone Conductors".
    Currently Ortofon A/S and DTU Mechanical Engineering are working in close collaboration within the EU Seventh Framework and Horizon 2020 Programme for Research and Innovation.

    Pro-Ject Audio Systems RPM 3 Carbon turntable in White High Gloss finish

    The latest edition to the RPM range of turntables follows on from where the hugely popular Genie 3 left off. The RPM 3 Carbon boasts a number of improvements from its sibling, the new RPM 1 Carbon.

    The new RPM 3 Carbon design has been upgraded to significantly reduce resonance across the turntable. While maintaining the instantly recognisable shape, this turntable boasts improvements in the tonearm, bearing, and motor.

    The brand new tonearm is a carbon fibre/aluminium resin construct, made using special heat and pressure treatments. The result of this new design is a tonearm that is more solid and anti-resonant than ever before at this price, while maintaining a light weight. The arm is finished off with a pre-fitted Ortofon 2M Silver cartridge and a new magnetic anti-skate mechanism. The improved counterweight also utilises TPE damping in the form of an anti-resonant ring around the fixing point.

    The new vinyl topped sandwich platter creates the perfect surface for your vinyl to play on with no need for a mat.

    The completely decoupled motor is based upon the same design as the Xpression Carbon, powered by an AC generator that's connected to the new DC power supply. The inverted main bearing now utilises a ceramic ball, offering a more fluid and consistent platter rotation than ever before.

    Available in Red, White or Black High Gloss finishes, the RPM 3 Carbon is a turntable package that offers truly phenomenal value for money.

    Key Features:

    • Precision belt drive using synchronous motor
    • Ultra-precision DC-driven AC generator motor power
