Pro-Ject RPM 1 Carbon Turntable

Ortofon 2 Red Cartridge

The Pro-Ject RPM 1 has a carbon fibre S-shaped tonearm tube, aluminium and resin. The arm tube is rigid and the internal damping is maximized and resonances are reduced to a minimum. This makes the tonearm suitable for MC cartridges. Additional features are a new magnetic anti-skating mechanism and a TPE-damped counterweight
