Manual belt-drive turntable with pre-mounted Sumiko Amethyst cartridge (Gloss Red)

A music-lover's turntable

Pro-Ject's RPM 5 Carbon offers striking good looks, excellent build quality, and a top-notch listening experience. Its teardrop-shaped MDF chassis does more than just look cool - it also resists vibrations that can smear sonic detail. An acoustically inert 12" acrylic platter spins on an inverted bearing with a ceramic ball for smooth, silent rotation and reduced rumble. And its one-piece straight carbon fiber tonearm offers superior rigidity and tracking accuracy.

Pre-mounted Sumiko Amethyst phono cartridge

The pre-mounted Sumiko Amethyst cartridge is the top of Sumiko's Oyster line of phono cartridges. It's equipped with a high-end nude line-contact stylus that can read a record groove with extreme detail. The result? Responsive dynamics, wide frequency response, and low noise. You'll hear your favorite tracks the way they're meant to sound.
