Pro-Ject's The Classic turntable takes 50's and 60's styling and mixes in modern manufacturing methods and improvements. The compact and elegant turntable features a belt driven mechanism that uses a low noise motor and high precision generator to give better speed stability. Advanced technology is also used for decoupling the platter to reduce noise from vibration and in the completely new designed tonearm.
Using a two-plinth design, the motor is kept separated from the bearing and tonearm to help reduce interference from electrical and mechanical noise. Each plinth is made from Medium-Density Fibre, and are isolated using special Thermo-Plastic Elastomers that make The Classic simple and easy to set up, while keeping its anti-resonance properties. The main platter has been further improved with TPE damping, with the sub-platter and bearing tweaked for higher tolerances that result in a better performance.
Utilizing development processes from the award-winning RPM 3 Carbon, the tonearm used in The Classic is made from a sandwiched composition of carbon and aluminium, which offers rigidity, speed, and improved damping. The tube is supported by a new bearing assembly that adds ultra-low friction and a wider movement range that improves tracking.
The Pro-Ject The Classic turntable comes with an Ortofon 2M Silver cartridge that allows for great playback of your records out of the box. Additionally, a dust cover is provided for proactive protection against dust, a junction box for easy cable upgrades, and a connect-IT E RCA cable for wiring up to your HiFi system.
