Manual turntable

The Pro-Ject RPM 1 Carbon Turntable does not compromise sound quality in order to achieve its entry-level price. This turntable has a low resonance chassis holding a newly designed inverted platter bearing with ceramic ball for reduced rumble. An outboard 15V AC motor is smoothly driven using an ultra-precision AC generator with DC power supply for further enhanced speed stability.

A completely new designed S-shaped tonearm tube is made from carbon fiber, aluminum, and resin. Using a complex 3-step process with heat treatment and 100 bar pressure, arm tube rigidity is strengthened, internal damping is maximized and resonances are reduced to a minimum. This makes the tonearm suitable for MC cartridges. Additional features are a new magnetic anti-skating mechanism and a TPE-damped counterweight. All of this results in a miracle in sound for the price and an ultra-stylish look.
