RPM 3 Carbon

Turntable

Manufacturer

Pro-Ject Audio Systems, Vienna, Austria

Red Dot
The RPM 3 Carbon turntable features a low-resonance chassis with an inverted platter bearing. Thanks to the ceramic ball and the precise belt drive, the device offers outstandingly smooth running with reduced rumbling. The tone arm made of carbon fibre, aluminium and synthetic resin is characterised by strong rigidity and high internal damping properties. In this way, resonance is reduced to such a degree that the tone arm is also suitable for MC pickup. Additional features are a magnetic anti-skating mechanism and a TPE-damped counterweight.

Statement by the jury

»The RPM 3 Carbon offers, in every detail, well-conceived, optimally aligned technology. Moreover, it pleases with its slim, characteristic design.«
