Pro-Ject’s X-Tension 9 is a true high-end turntable that is slightly more compact in design. With a slimmer main plinth and platter is still features some of the design features of tables costing twice its price. Using ultra dense MDF for high mass and low resonance and unique magnetically decoupled feet the main plight provides an amazing level of performance. The platter is a perfect aluminum alloy which is damped with thermoplastic elastomers (TPE). The platter is driven by a synchronous motor with a quartz-generated, high precision speed regulator featuring micro-processor control. Finally the 9cc Evolution tonearm is a conical, carbon-fiber design that greatly minimizes standing wave reflections. Its rides on an inverted bearing using four hardened ABEC7 spec ballraces allowing for friction-free movement.
The result is silky smooth performance with a dynamically musical presentation.
