Pro-Ject - Perspex DC Turntable
Pro-Ject Perspex DC Turntable
When we heard that the venerable Pro-Ject Perspective was being discontinued, we were heartbroken. Then came word of an exciting new project based on the Perspective platform.
The Perspex is that table. Featuring the new Pro-Ject 9cc Evolution carbon fiber tonearm (check out the new massive gimbal mount!), an ingenious new sub-chassis design and a host of upgrades, we dried our eyes and cheered.
The Perspex remains a clear acrylic plinth, suspended, belt driven design but virtually everything else has been either upgraded or modified. Starting with the most visible change, the new Pro-ject 9cc Evolution features a tapered carbon fiber armtube with an integrated headshell that is made from a single piece of carbon fiber. The 9cc Evolution is also the first Pro-Ject tonearm to feature a new ultra-rigid bearing assembly for an enormous increase in resolution and flexibility in cartridge choice.
The sub-chassis is a deceptively sophisticated design, made out of Corian - a material well known for its high rigidity and damping properties - the subchassis is suspended using three separate height adjustable opposing magnet assemblies. This gives the Perspex excellent isolation from vibration, creating ultra-black backgrounds and very good dynamic range.
Also new is the MDF & Vinyl composite platter, which further eliminates resonance. Other features include chassis mount RCA connectors, a threaded record clamp, adjustable cone feet for a total package that will knock your socks off.
The Perspex is available in two configurations, either as a standalone turntable with no cartridge, or as the Perspex SuperPack, which includes a Sumiko Blue Point Special EVO III cartridge and a Pro-Ject Connect-It phono cable.
