Product Description

The Pro-Ject Xpression Carbon combines many of the successes of the Xpression range with some brand new features exclusive to the Xpression Carbon model. The Xpression Carbon features a stunning finish, audiophile technical specification and has been meticulously designed to offer the best performance for the money.

The Xpression Carbon improves on most turntables thanks to the one-piece carbon fibre tonearm, mounted in a brand new heavyweight assembly which has been inspired by the superior Evolution tonearms. This over-sized support effectively isolates the tonearm from the plinth, and takes any minor resonances in the tonearm and dissipates them immediately - allowing only the original music signal to be sent to your amplifier.

The truly unique factor of the Xpression Carbon is the brand new Ortofon 2M Silver, a special version of Ortofon's world famous 2M Red cartridge, finished with silver spools for optimal signal generation.

The Xpression Carbon benefits from a new AC motor design with DC power supply. The motor is isolated from the main plinth - to avoid resonance transference - by two rubber gromits designed and manufactured by Ortofon's expert rubber division. The motor applies rotating force to a sub-platter, which drives the high-gloss main platter. The Xpression Carbon is supplied with both a felt and a cork mat, to tailor the sound perfectly for your ears, and your environment.
