Savor the sweet sounds of vinyl

You may be new to vinyl listening, or you may be a veteran audiophile ready to revisit your album collection. Whichever description fits you, Pro-Ject's RPM 3 Carbon is an excellent way to get the best out of your records.

Precise construction and careful attention to design and materials allow this player to retrieve layers of sonic detail from the grooves of your favorite albums. Its striking appearance and high-gloss piano lacquer finish make this 'table look every bit as good as it sounds.

A focus on performance

The RPM 3 Carbon's unusual boomerang-shaped MDF chassis does more than just look cool - it also resists vibrations that can smear sonic detail. The 'table rests on vibration-damping cone feet that further reduce noise. The heavy MDF platter is topped by an integrated mat made from recycled record vinyl, and it spins on an inverted bearing with a ceramic ball for smooth, silent rotation and reduced rumble.

The motor is driven by an ultra-precise AC generator with a DC power supply for enhanced speed stability. The isolated motor assembly and belt drive system keep motor vibration away from the chassis, preventing noise from being transferred to the cartridge.

Pre-mounted Sumiko Moonstone cartridge

This 'table features a pre-mounted Sumiko Moonstone moving magnet cartridge. It's equipped with a high-end elliptical diamond stylus that is designed to read a record groove with extreme detail. The result? Wide frequency response, responsive dynamics, and low noise.

It's mounted on an advanced, S-shaped 10" tonearm made from carbon fiber, aluminum, and resin - a combination that provides superior rigidity and maximum internal resonance damping. An offset counterweight design lowers the arm's center of gravity to improve tracking - a big help with warped records. And the RPM 3 Carbon comes outfitted with an easy-to-use magnetic anti-skating mechanism for faster setup.
