The Pro-Ject RPM 9 Carbon - Cadenza Red Edition package comprises Pro-Ject's RPM 9 Carbon turntable and Ortofon's Cadenza Red MC cartridge.
Pro-Ject's RPM 9 Carbon turntable is a step up from the RPM 9 Evo turntable that has been met with great success for many years. This latest variant has been (almost) entirely redesigned and evidences the expertise of Pro-Ject. From the opening bars, we were impressed by the precise and punchy soundstage. A well-balanced system that plays every musical genre.
