Pro-Ject RPM-1 Carbon in choice of 3 colours


Following on from where the extremely popular Genie 3 left off is the latest edition to the RPM range of turntables. The RPM-1 Carbon keeps the stunning design of the Genie 3 and boasts a range of improvements, impeccable sound and affordable price.

The new RPM-1 Carbon design has been upgraded to reduce resonance with improvements in the tonearm, bearing, and motor.

The tonearm is a carbon fibre/aluminium resin construct, 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 result of this new design is a tonearm that is more solid and anti-resonant than ever before, whilst remaining its light weight.

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.

The RPM-1 Carbon is a best-selling turntable package that offers an excellent sound experience at a competitive price and is available in high gloss finishes in red, white and black.
