    More details of Pro-Ject Audio Systems new The Classic 25th Anniversary turntable

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ftmDGTE0s54
    YouTube video of Pro-Ject Audio Systems new The Classic 25th Anniversary turntable



    To celebrate their 25 year anniversary, Pro-Ject Audio Systyems are combining traditional design with modern technology in a brand new turntable model. The aptly named 'Classic' is a sleek, compact and elegant turntable based around the "frame" design popularised by the likes of Thorens and Linn in the 1950's and 60's, but implemented with the innovative technologies Pro-Ject have become known for.

    The two-plinth design allows the motor to sit in a separate plinth to the bearing and tonearm, reducing the unwanted transference of electrical and mechanical noise. The two medium-density fibre plinth sections are isolated from each-other with the use of specially selected Thermo-Plastic Elastomers (TPE). The use of TPE, rather than the spring-loaded method of historical designs, makes The Classic effortlessly simple to set up while retaining anti-resonance properties.


    Pro-Ject Audio Systems The Classic 25th Anniversary turntable

    The idea of anti-resonant structures also carries through to The Classic's platter. The general layout was inspired by the iconic Debut platter assembly, but the main platter has been significantly upgraded to a special aluminium alloy version which is internally lined with TPE damping. The sub-platter and bearing are also similar to the Debut design, but the tolerances are far tighter for The Classic, resulting in a higher-quality performance.


    Pro-Ject Audio Systems The Classic 25th Anniversary turntable

    The Classic also boasts a radical new tonearm design, inspired by the production processes developed for the award-winning RPM 3 Carbon turntable. The tonearm tube is made from a sandwich composite of carbon and aluminium. The carbon fibre gives the arm rigidity, speed and reduced mass, while the aluminium delivers better overall damping. The tube is then supported by a new bearing assembly with ultra-low friction and wider movement for improved tracking. The nickel-plated counterweight not only looks fantastic, it's also TPE-damped to ensure the arm remains acoustically neutral. The Classic tonearm can also be VTA and azimuth adjusted to suit almost any modern pick-up cartridge.

    The Classic is supplied as standard with the Ortofon 2M Silver cartridge, which has been developed exclusively for Pro-Ject Audio Systems. This popular moving-magnet design allows The Classic to perform to a high standard right out of the box, and also offers upgrade options as your musical journey continues. The Classic is also supplied with a fitted dust cover, a junction box for easy cable upgrades and the Connect-IT E RCA cables. The three finishes (Eucalyptus (Black), Rosenut and Walnut) also mean The Classic can fit into any decor.

    HiFi News reviews Pro-Ject Audio Systems RPM 3 Carbon turntable

    http://www.henleydesigns.co.uk/asset...on_Reprint.pdf

    (Artist: Ron Sexsmith / Track: My, myself and wine / Album: Forever Endeavour) - “I’m greeted with music that’s a well balanced blend of mature detail and plain fun.”
    “Sexsmith’s vocals are nicely opened up to reveal their intentionally relaxed tones, while each shake of the tambourines is presented with a natural ring and decay.”
    “What also hit me early on about the Pro-Ject’s performance were the impressively low levels of background noise. Cueing up a 1984 pressing of Foreigner’s Agent Provocateur that’s seen plenty of action, I’m expecting to hear two decades’ worth of use within each ‘silent’ groove separating the tracks. But with the Pro-Ject and partnering Ortofon calling the shots I’m hard pressed to tell this vintage edition from a new LP straight out of its shrink-wrap.”
    “What also comes across is a real sense of cohesion, suggesting arm and cartridge pulling together, working in harmony.”
    “…you get a very even delivery of the music, making it all more involving to listen to – and harder to analyse – as you’re drawn in, enjoying the music.”
    (on the 2M cartridges) “Compared to the cheaper Red variant, the Silver sounds much more detailed in its bass delivery and with some added weight.”
    “Pro-Ject’s RPM 3 Carbon conveys enough body and presence to ensure bass instruments sound convincing and lifelike.”
    “…delivering a performance that lives and breathes in a surprisingly persuasive manner!”
    “what really marks it out from the crowd is its sheer ‘completeness’, delivering a sound that hugely exceeds the sum of its modest parts.”

    "Benefiting from trickle-down technology developed for its costlier RPM-series turntables, this new deck features a host of engineering innovations to boost its sound. The V-shaped chassis and dynamically-balanced platter are both fashioned from MDF, the latter with a mat made from recycled LP vinyl, while the outboard 15V AC motor is driven by a compact synthesised power supply. The new 10in S-shaped tonearm is a key feature, comprising a damped alloy tube surrounded by a resin and carbon-fibre mix. This, in turn, carries a a custom silver-wired version of Ortofon's classic 2M moving-magnet cartridge, the final ingredient in what is a deeply impressive deck offering a remarkably stable and foot-tapping sound."

    "Sound-wise the RPM3 ticks all the right boxes for me. Bass is solid and well controlled and with good midrange detail and a clear treble."

    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.

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

    HiFi World reviews Pro-Ject Audio Systems RPM 3 Carbon turntable



    Hi-Fi World, August 2015
    Rating: 5/5 Globes
    OUTSTANDING - amongst the best
    VALUE - Keenly priced


    “Assembly was a breeze”
    (‘Jazz from Hell’ by Frank Zappa) “With a complicated piece such as this, you need a deck that can handle the complexities and diversity with dexterity and steady timing simultaneously. Without this the information is misconstrued and interpreted as a mush of noises. Played right, this composition is a masterpiece – and to my surprise the Pro-Ject handled it very well indeed.”
    (‘Hey uh-what you say come on’ by Roy Ayres) “Both instruments had their own space and again the deck’s speed stability really embraced the album…”
    “…the Pro-Ject RPM 3 Carbon exhibited impressive control. I would imagine there are not many decks able to compete at this level and price point.”
    (‘Face Value’ by Phil Colins) “all percussion instruments portrayed by the RPM 2 played with a more-than-acceptable amount of realism, due to the strength, stiffness and damping of its carbon fibre tone arm.”
    (‘Babylon By Bus’ by Bob Marley & The Wailers) “Bob Marley’s voice delivered total emotion and bass from the Pro-Ject was gracefully heavy, conveying the ambience of the concert plus the warts and all live recording.”
    “It’s simply a great turntable…”
    “…build quality was excellent – as expected from Pro-Ject.”
    “Anyone looking for an inexpensive but good-all-round turntable with plenty of latitude for upgrade cartridge-wise should put it right at the top of their list.”
    “This turntable gave a sonically even-handed representation of any genre of music.”
    “…the RPM 3 Carbon offers great value and is something of a bargain. I loved it!”
    “FOR: Price, Good bass, Realism”

    "Benefiting from trickle-down technology developed for its costlier RPM-series turntables, this new deck features a host of engineering innovations to boost its sound. The V-shaped chassis and dynamically-balanced platter are both fashioned from MDF, the latter with a mat made from recycled LP vinyl, while the outboard 15V AC motor is driven by a compact synthesised power supply. The new 10in S-shaped tonearm is a key feature, comprising a damped alloy tube surrounded by a resin and carbon-fibre mix. This, in turn, carries a a custom silver-wired version of Ortofon's classic 2M moving-magnet cartridge, the final ingredient in what is a deeply impressive deck offering a remarkably stable and foot-tapping sound."

    HiFi News reviews Pro-Ject Audio Systems RPM 3 Carbon turntable

    (Artist: Ron Sexsmith / Track: My, myself and wine / Album: Forever Endeavour) - “I’m greeted with music that’s a well balanced blend of mature detail and plain fun.”
    “Sexsmith’s vocals are nicely opened up to reveal their intentionally relaxed tones, while each shake of the tambourines is presented with a natural ring and decay.”
    “What also hit me early on about the Pro-Ject’s performance were the impressively low levels of background noise. Cueing up a 1984 pressing of Foreigner’s Agent Provocateur that’s seen plenty of action, I’m expecting to hear two decades’ worth of use within each ‘silent’ groove separating the tracks. But with the Pro-Ject and partnering Ortofon calling the shots I’m hard pressed to tell this vintage edition from a new LP straight out of its shrink-wrap.”
    “What also comes across is a real sense of cohesion, suggesting arm and cartridge pulling together, working in harmony.”
    “…you get a very even delivery of the music, making it all more involving to listen to – and harder to analyse – as you’re drawn in, enjoying the music.”
    (on the 2M cartridges) “Compared to the cheaper Red variant, the Silver sounds much more detailed in its bass delivery and with some added weight.”
    “Pro-Ject’s RPM 3 Carbon conveys enough body and presence to ensure bass instruments sound convincing and lifelike.”
    “…delivering a performance that lives and breathes in a surprisingly persuasive manner!”
    “what really marks it out from the crowd is its sheer ‘completeness’, delivering a sound that hugely exceeds the sum of its modest parts.”
