Product Description

The Pro-Ject RPM1 Carbon Turntable continues from the Pro-Ject Genie 3 and continues the range of high-quality turntables offered by Pro-Ject.

Better Materials

RPM1 Carbon Turntable features a brand new tonearm which is constructed from carbon fibre, and aluminium, utilising a special thermal and pressure treatment. The addition of carbon fibre differentiates the Pro-Ject RPM1 from the Pro-Ject Genie and demonstrates the maturing of the model over time. The new tonearm design is more solid and has more anti-resonant properties than other models at this price point, whilst reducing weight.

The tonearm is pre-fitted with Ortofon's 2M Red Cartridge and has a  new magnetic anti-skate mechanism. The counterweight is improved by TPE damping technology in the form of an anti-resonant ring around the fixing point.

Smoother Bearing

The motor on the RPM1 Carbon is fully decoupled, which is based upon the same design as the Xpression Carbon,  powered by an AC generator that is connected to the new DC power supply. The inverted main bearing now works with a ceramic ball, which results in a much smoother and fluid platter rotation.

We were very fond of the original Pro-Ject Genie 3, but the updated design and addition of carbon fibre means it is all too easy to fall for the Pro-Ject RPM1 Carbon.

Press Reviews

  • 'High frequencies are incisive and articulate while bass is nicely taut and delivered with a decent amount of power.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine July 2015)
  • 'Set-up is easy. The cartridge is already fitted and aligned, leaving just the counterweight and bias to be adjusted. Make sure you place the turntable somewhere level and rigid, ideally as far away from the speakers as possible.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine July 2015)
  • 'Vocal growls in the recording are perfectly projected in front of the soundstage, demonstrating the genuine three-dimensionality of the performance that is so well rendered by the Pro-Ject and has many of the characteristics of the company's more expensive turntable packages, which is quite an achievement.' (Hi-Fi Choice Magazine June 2015)
  • 'The distinctive and minimalistic design of the Pro-Ject RPM 1 Carbon is available in striking red, white and black high gloss finishes. It will certainly add an air of modern elegance to any hi-fi setup and has a real feel of quality about it.' (Hi-Fi Choice Magazine June 2015)
  • 'LIKE: Excellent build quality and superb tonearm/cartridge combination
    WE SAY: A modern and elegant design resulting in a superb-sounding turntable.' (Hi-Fi Choice Magazine June 2015)
