Product Description

Pro-Ject RPM 5 is an attractive player, made from quality materials, capable of fine tuning to your audio needs. Inside, flexible high-purity copper wire is utilised from the headshell right through the gold-plated phono sockets. 


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.

Headshell & Armtube

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 arm base allows for accurate height adjustment of needle azimuth despite the fixed headshell, whilst the arm lift itself is silicone-damped and can also be adjusted to suit the working height of the arm.

Key Features

- Decoupled motor
- Carbon Fibre topped plinth
- Heavy acrylic platter
- Available with or without Ortofon Quintet red cartridge
- Pro-Ject 9cc Evolution tonearm

    Compared this RPM5 with a RP6 and RP8 and prefered it in every way. You can't beat mass when it comes to turntables. Good support and you are there. Put it with an Audio Note OTO and a pair of nicely efficient speakers ' in my case Audio Note AN-2 Hemp and this turntable is not shown up by any of it. Simple minds live recordings soar and Neil young draws you in. Cant say enough about this deck. Super quiet. Used with a Lehmann Black Cube Classic phono stage and a relatively cheap cartridge ' Ortofon MM Silver and you are there at the gig. Very good value for money.
