The entry into the RPM world
RPM 3 Carbon utilizes evolutionary enhancements to improve the performance of the RPM series: A low resonance chassis holds an inverted platter bearing with a ceramic ball for a further 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 10“ S-shaped tonearm tube is made from carbon fiber, aluminum, and resin. Using a complex 3-step process with heat treatment and 100bar pressure, the arm tube rigidity is strengthened, internal damping is maximized and resonances are reduced to a minimum. This makes the tonearm also suitable for MC cartridges. Additional features are a magnetic anti-skating mechanism and a TPE-damped counterweight.

The RPM 3 Carbon is available with or without Ortofon 2M-Silver cartridge. A super shielded, semi-symmetrical, low-capacitance Pro-Ject Connect it E phono cable is included.
