    lovely turntable I have heard this and its bigger brother at great length they are certainly good value for money. The model above is quite abit better at projecting the midrange and providing sheer weight, but this is no slouch either great buy and designed by a man who is certainly a Vinyl nut and owns many great turntables.

    Yes guys you win it is a Pro-Ject Signature 10, as I said a big leap of faith as I could not hear it before purchase, but so pleased i did. I think this will be a keeper for several years at least.Apart from sounding very good and punching above its price in my view, it certainly looks lovely. The arm is an interesting design, and slightly unusual, but I can hand on heart says it performs as it should, I am getting the same level of detail and more from my Benz Micro LP-S cartridge as I did in an SME and the JELCO, so that is great. So the designer must have spent spent time ensuring it worked well and partnered the TT well.

    Thanks to all for the kind compliments on it.

    Is the tonearm a unipivot Adrian? I suspect your speed control will be a little more precise than my VPI.

    Adrian,

    I have the same Ikea led light. I noticed that when I had it near my TT arm it generated a lot of noise even though it is low voltage and powered by a wall wart. I moved it to the other side of the TT and things improved but then moved it away altogether.

    Exactly the same happened too me Geoff. When I had it anywhere near my TT and valve amp I could here lots of nasty electronic noise.

    Hi James, its what is called a restricted unipivot, so the pointed post it sits on is in a slotted hole, so stops side ways wobble, this can introduce some friction but the pillar the arm sits on has some form of friction free coating and it seems to work well. I think there have been a couple of other arms with this type of pivot. Also unusually a S shaped arm on a unipivot. I suspect Pro-Ject may have done this so you could use a SPU, and they do have a good relationship with Ortofon. The arm is certainly able to take the weight of one and on the edge of its recommended tracking force. So might be interesting to try in the future if I can ever afford one.

    Mmm that's interesting, I have had some low hum that I thought was due to transformer radiation to SUT, but I will certainly investigate the light issue, and now thinking about it a friend has been getting interference type noise and he has an light as well. I will investigate and advise him as well. thank you

    Not much of a reveal when you update your equipment in your signature before you post pictures.

    It looks like one serious turntable. Enjoy....
