Pro-Ject RPM-1 Carbon Turntable

The latest edition to the RPM range of turntables follows on from where the hugely popular Genie 3 left off. Utilising a range of innovative improvements over its predecessor, the RPM-1 Carbon stands out from the crowd with its stunning design, impeccable sound and affordable price. 

The new RPM-1 Carbon design has been upgraded to significantly reduce resonance across the turntable. While maintaining the instantly recognisable shape, this turntable boasts improvements in the tonearm, bearing, and motor.

The brand new tonearm is a carbon fibre/aluminium resin construct, made using special heat and pressure treatments. The result of this new design is a tonearm that is more solid and anti-resonant than ever before at this price, while maintaining a light weight. The arm is finished off 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 Motor sits in a larger hole and is free standing in the centre of the hole, the only contact being via the drive belt.

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.

Available in Red, White or Black high gloss finishes, the RPM-1 Carbon is a turntable package that offers truly phenomenal value for money.

Very Happy

I agree with Simon, got the same spec with the 2M Blue and what an upgrade from my little Elemental USB, sound quality is well worth the outlay and i am listening at much lower volume levels than before and its louder! Looking forward to the arrival of the platter and power supply upgrade very soon.

Awsome performance for the price

I've barely taken the rpm-1 out of the box and I'm already smitten with its seductive sound. Tracy Chapmans fast car sounds as if I'm listening to cover as she sounds so different. The guys at Analogue Seduction allowed me to trade in the incumbent 2M Red for its bigger brother the 2M Blue cartridge and it was worth the extra money because I now have a deck that sounds like to me a couple of hundred pounds more expensiive. So thanks again Analogue Seduction I'm a very satisfied and happy customer.
