The Pro-Ject RPM 3 Carbon continues the lineage of high-quality turntables from Pro-Ject. Based on the design of the RPM 1 Carbon, the RPM 3 features a 10" S-shaped carbon fibre tonearm, Ortofon 2M Red cartridge and more improvements.
The brand new tonearm is a carbon fibre/aluminium resin construct, made using special heat and pressure treatments. The carbon touch sets the Pro-Ject RPM1 apart from the Pro-Ject Genie, and demonstrates the model range maturing over time. The result of this new design is a tonearm that is more solid and anti-resonant than ever before at this price, whilst minimising weight. The arm is finished with a pre-fitted Ortofon 2m Red 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 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.
We were mighty fond of the original Pro-Ject Genie 3, but with the updated design and the carbon fibre features, it's easy to fall for the Pro-Ject RPM1 Carbon.
