Description

This vinyl turntable is a semi-automatic version of the famous and much awarded Pro-Ject XPression3. That is it has a shutdown system at the end of the record, but no tonearm return to its housing, and that it incorporates a speed change through a dial (it conceals a speed box 1) so no more need to lift up the platter! In addition to all this, it has a maximum optimisation: a base in a medium covered in a dark grey varnish, an 8.6" tonearm with a carbon tube and an aluminium head, a silent 16 V motor and an acrylic platter. All this technology rests on 3 cones using aluminium and TPE. To offer a ready-to-use a product, Pro-Ject delivers this vinyl turntable mounted and adjusted with the excellentOrtofon 2M Red. It is worth noting that the tonearm cables are not captive and so the standard cables can easily be replaced by higher performing models, such as Pro-Ject's 'Connect it range. When contemplating this vinyl turntable, the first thing that comes to mind is that you get your money's worth! The manufacturing quality is outstanding for this price, as well as the quality of the materials used. The listening is highly rhythmic and brings the sound quality great energy. The timbre cannot be criticised and seems clearer than on the Debut Esprit, just like the transparency, which is a step above. We tested a Connect it C cable, and it yielded many details and a better timbre. This vinyl turntable is very balanced and has a sound, accomplished mechanical construction. It gives unparalleled ease of use in this range. A 'Best Buy' for several years, highly justified.

Parfait

Un grand merci à l'équipe de MaPlatine.com pour sa disponibilité et son aide. Un super achat, aucun regret. Je (re)découvre un grand nombre de mes vinyles après avoir enfin décidé d'investir dans une configuration plus moderne, dont cette platine semi-automatique. Un régal pour les oreilles.

Superbe!

Superbe platine, tant par la qualité de construction et son design que par la qualité du son avec la cellule ortofon 2M red. Ai hésité à upgrader d'entré avec la blue mais aucun regret tant la red est performante pour ce prix, et cela pourra se faire plus tard...
Les conseils et le service sont parfaits et la livraison vers l'île de la Réunion s'est faite en 3 jours ouvrés. Emballage parfait, rien n'a bougé, et réglage impeccable. Enfin, la fonction semi-auto est appréciable.
