The resonance-optimised platter is a sandwich construction utilising the hub, a medium density fibre platter, cork mat and a screw-down record clamp (standard mat also provided). This platter's low-tolerance chrome-plated stainless-steel axle runs on a Teflon bearing plate in a sintered bronze bearing housing, with the main bearing dampened by a central metal block giving optimum centre of gravity.
Standing proud as the centrepiece of this beautiful turntable is the headshell and armtube unit, fashioned from a single piece of lightweight carbon-fibre. The solid armbase allows for accurate height adjustment of needle azimuth despite the fixed headshell, whilst the armlift itself is silicone damped and can also be adjusted to suit the working height of the arm.
On the inside, flexible high-purity copper wire is utilised from the headshell right through the gold plated phono sockets.
In short, the Pro-Ject RPM 5 is an attractive player, made from quality materials that's capable of fine tuning to your audio needs.
