Description

After the well-received release of the brand’s ‘flagship vessel’, the signature 12, Pro-Ject set itself the task of producing a more affordable vinyl turntable. Drawing on all of the expertise and technology developed for its high-end range, the Austrian brand has now released the new Signature 10 vinyl turntable, at half the price of the original Signature 12 model! But how have they done it?

 

Firstly, the tonearm is identical apart from the length: 10 instead of 12 inches. Instead of using standard bearings, it has just a single bearing, known as ‘unipivot’. Like the brand’s earlier models, the Signature 10 has a mass-loaded subchassis. This creates the effect of significant mass and leads to a very low resonance frequency. The result is improved by the addition of magnetic feet, which isolates the main chassis. The platter and tonearm base are secured to a completely vibration-resistant heavy chrome-plated panel. It sits on three TPE vibration isolation bushings that isolate it from the main chassis.

 

The motor has been designed according to a specific set of specifications to ensure that it runs noiselessly. It is driven by a round silicone belt, which powers the entire platter. Speed regulation is controlled by two microprocessors and two quartz oscillators, which enable changes in speed between 33⅓ and 45 RPM.

 

The Signature 10 is outstanding on all counts (production, user-friendliness, musicality), and its price is particularly appealing. It has its sights set on the very high end segment of the market, which is a somewhat unexpected move from Pro-Ject. But it’s clear now that not only is Pro-Ject a benchmark in the entry-level market, it can also be relied upon to produce quality high end products. Great job!

Quel SON !

Un aspect visuel impressionnant qui disparaît complètement à l'oreille tant sa neutralité musicale est remarquable.
On se fait rapidement une opinion en lui confiant un vinyl d'une quarantaine d'années et en écoutant le même enregistrement sur CD ... Même avec une platine CD haut de gamme, la différence est flagrante !
Si les autres maillons de l'installation suivent, cet appareil donne réellement un sens au terme "Haute Fidélité". Des grandes orgues, aux orchestres baroques, des petites formations de jazz aux meilleurs groupes de blues-rock tout est détaillé, précis, léché, puissant quand il le faut, sans jamais apparaître "aseptisé". En bref ça "sonne vrai" !
On se plaît même à découvrir des harmoniques subtiles et insoupçonnées dans des enregistrements que l'on croyait pourtant connaître par coeur. Et que dire des pressages audiophiles récents !, Là c'est magnifique.
La symbiose avec la cellule conseillée par Franck (Ortofon Quintet Blue) y est aussi très certainement pour quelque chose. Merci à lui.
PS : J'ai attendu deux mois d'écoutes attentives avant de rédiger ce mémo pour être certain de ne pas me laisser déborder par un excès d'enthousiasme bien compréhensible lié l'attrait de la nouveauté.
