Project 6 Perspex SB Turntable

The 6 Perspex SB takes the same proven design as previous 6 Perspex designs, but utilises a far superior motor to give vinyl enthusiasts an even more appealing high-end vinyl spinner. 

The new perimeter drive-belt mechanism has been inspired by the recent introduction of the RPM 10 Carbon turntable, which uses a fully-decoupled motor. With the 6 Perspex SB, the motor sits within its own cut-out inside the main plinth, lined with damping material for reduced resonance. The motor itself is an AC design, which is regulated by its own built-in speed controller. This speed controller not only offers easy switching between 331/3 and 45rpm, but it also generates an entirely fresh new sine wave for the motor – filtering out the fluctuations and distortions associated with a typical mains supply, for reduced resonance.

The 6 Perspex SB stands out as a beautifully engineered machine thanks to the pristine acrylic plinth, which is accented by the striking sub-chassis, platter and TPE-damped aluminium coned feet, as well as the new motor.

The turntable’s sub-chassis is made of Corian®, a solid-surface material renowned for its isolation properties. This sub-chassis is then isolated from the main plinth by magnetic power, effectively creating a “floating” platform free from unwanted vibrations. The precision-balanced vinyl sandwich platter rides on the sub-chassis utilising an inverted main bearing, which combines a stainless-steel axle with a ceramic ball. The platter’s 4mm thick vinyl top-layer is the perfect interface for a playing record, and eliminates the need for any form of turntable mat, which can have a detrimental effect on the sound performance of high-end turntables. The platter is finished with a threaded spindle, to accommodate the supplied screw-able record clamp.

The 6 Perspex SB is finished with Pro-Ject’s coveted 9CC Evolution tonearm for a true high-end experience. The 9” tonearm boasts a one-piece conical carbon fibre tube, TPE-damped counterweights and an inverted bearing design that allows for perfect tracking and minimal resonance, even with demanding pick-up cartridges.

The 6 Perspex SB is the complete audiophile turntable, but at a very appealing price. A top grade phono cable is supplied in the way of the Connect-IT E (123cm) and a protective dust cover tops off this incredible package.
