Pro-Ject RPM-3 Carbon Turntable - Gloss White


Brand Pro-Ject

The Pro-Ject RPM-3 Carbon is a unique design that has been built on the success of the popular Genie-3 deck. While the shape is similar to the Genie-3 this is pretty much where the similarities end. There are many upgrades from its predecessor that make this deck a very well rounded design that seems to have addressed all of the important factors in great turntable design. The Carbon tonearm is very lightweight and inherently has ultra low resonance, pre-fitted with the Ortofon 2M Silver cartridge. Dust cover is available separately. The counterweight has also had some attention with anti-resonant ring at the fixing point. We really like the vinyl topped platter that is a great surface material for placing your records, so no need for a platter mat. 
We will be more than happy to demonstrate this deck and even help set-up for you at our Liverpool store. For any help or advice please call us on 0151 525 3845.
The new RPM 3 Carbon design has been upgraded to significantly reduce resonance across the turntable. While maintaining the instantly recognisable shape, this turntable boasts improvements in the tonearm, bearing, and motor.

The brand new tonearm is a carbon fibre/aluminium resin construct, made using special heat and pressure treatments. The result of this new design is a tonearm that is more solid and anti-resonant than ever before at this price, while maintaining a light weight. The arm is finished off with a pre-fitted Ortofon 2M Silver cartridge and a new magnetic anti-skate mechanism. The improved counterweight also utilises TPE damping in the form of an anti-resonant ring around the fixing point.

The new vinyl topped sandwich platter creates the perfect surface for your vinyl to play on with no need for a mat.

The completely decoupled motor is based upon the same design as the Xpression Carbon, powered by an AC generator that's connected to the new DC power supply. The inverted main bearing now utilises a ceramic ball, offering a more fluid and consistent platter rotation than ever before.

Available in Red, White or Black high gloss finishes, the RPM 3 Carbon is a turntable package that offers truly phenomenal value for money.
