Pro-Ject Xtension 10 Evolution Turntable
The Xtension 10 Evolution is a marvel of the elite turntable genre, with stunning audiophile features beyond it's modest price tag.
The result of the Xtension 10 Evolution's design is a unique combination of ‘mass loaded’ and ‘floating turntable’ principles.
Superlative vinyl performance in a more compact size!
The Xtension 10 chassis is made from MDF filled with metal sand, that gives high mass and is non-resonant. Magnetic feet, which decouple the main plinth from its base, are combined with a weighty 22 kg total turntable mass. With these two magnets located in the feet, the turntable is practically floating.The result is a unique combination of ‘mass loaded’ and ‘floating turntable’ design principles. Instead of the old standard adoption of pure metal used for the main platter, we’ve found a perfect alloy which we damped on the inner side with Sorbothane®. Additionally we’ve glued recycled Vinyl records to the top (which act as a perfect mat) and bake this ‘sandwich’ before precision balancing it. The final product subsequently benefits from a wonderfully resonance-free, heavy platter, that runs ultrasilently on an inverted ceramic ball bearing with magnetic suspension. The Pro-Ject 10” Evolution with its tonearm base also benefits from ‘high-mass’ technologies, and is isolated from the main board by a sheet of Sorbothane®. To use this tonearm with a wide range of top quality phono cartridges, from 4 to 14 Grams it comes with a set of 4 different Sorbothane®- damped counterweights.
Engineered With Care:
The Pro-Ject Xtension 10 chassis is very unique in it's design. Made of high density MDF, the plinth is then filled with metal sand, allowing the base to have a high mass that is non-resonant.
Magnetic, floating feet decouple the main plinth from its base. This, combined with a weighty 22 kg total turntable mass result in a unique combination of ‘mass loaded’ and ‘floating turntable’ design principles.
Instead of a generic turntable design of pure aluminium or steel, we’ve found the perfect alloy for the for the main platter of the Pro-Ject Xtension 10 Evolution. Damped on the inner side with Sorbothane® to reduce vibrations, our design also pushes the envelope with the inclusion of an in-built recycled Vinyl mat on the surface.
The final product subsequently benefits from a wonderfully resonance-free, heavy platter, that runs silently on an inverted ceramic ball bearing with magnetic suspension and is ideal for coupling a record directly on its surface.
