"A modern and elegant design resulting in a superb-sounding turntable" Hi-Fi Choice magazine. Group Test Winner.

Carbon fibre tone-arm

Although impressively engineered throughout, the new design of tone-arm deserves special mention. The 8.6", S-shaped tone-arm is constructed from carbon fibre, aluminium and resin, using special heat and pressure processes for maximum rigidity. Increased rigidity reduces resonance, so music sounds tighter, punchier and more detailed than before. There's also counterweight damping for reduced distortion and magnetic anti-skating - so no more fiddly weights and wires!

Isolated motor unit
One of the most striking features of the Pro-Ject RPM 1 Carbon has always been its separate motor unit, which ensures that noise and vibration from the motor don't interfere with the delicate pickup area. The RPM 1 Carbon features a new, ultra-precision motor, giving ultra-low vibration and maximum speed stability. The motor housing uses thick damping at its base, and a new hardwearing inverted platter bearing with a ceramic ball has been introduced. For ease of use, the power switch is located directly on top of the motor unit.

Factory-fitted Ortofon 2MRed cartridge
The final flourish to this turntable is the inclusion of an Ortofon 2MRed cartridge. Usually valued at around £85, it's a fantastic bonus to have bundled in with the turntable. Its elliptical-shaped stylus provides a balanced and distortion-free sound that's also kind to your records in terms of its low wear rate.

For true music lovers, the sound of vinyl simply doesn't get any better at this price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from RPM 1 I bought this turntable three weeks ago. Really pleased with it, both in the way it plays records but also the way it looks. It was simple to assemble and if you need more help there are some great tutorials on YouTube. I am considering purchasing a cover but it looks so good I’m just cleaning it for now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pro-ject RPM1 This turntable met my expectations and a A great sound from this turntable. Delivery was very quick indeed. The only downside is having to purchase a cover at £70 which I think should be included.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound, some small drawbacks Hi Deck is paired with a Pro-Ject Box S Phono and Dali Minuet speakers Pros: The sound is great, taut, and broad. I hear a lot more detail than with my previous deck, and realise how tired that was. Hugely enjoy listening to it. Great stylish and space saving design. Quality cartridge, and great carbon tone arm, Cons: No dust cover. This is a major omission. You can buy one for around £70 which seems a lot, the same cost in fact of the supplied Ortofon Red cartridge, a much more important component. This seems a bit wrong way round. It is fiddly to set up the downforce counterweight. A screw rather than slide mechanism would make it easier to make small, precise adjustments. The arm cradle does not grip the arm firmly, it is easy to knock the arm out for it to bump over the platter. The lift/lower lever feels flimsy These are relatively small issues, and can be lived with. Hope this is helpful

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounds amazing Got this about 2 weeks ago with a price promise from the staff at Newcastle for £300 so a bargain, it’s a great piece of kit was not sure of the sound at first as it was on the same cabinet as the speakers but then wall mounted it and it’s beautiful great tonal range and a joy to look at

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great demo, and advice I was unsure about a turntable at such a good price, but seeing it on demo. I was amazed by the overall quality build and sound. For the price, I would say upgrading the cartridge to ortofon blue would help. Richard at the croydon store show me how to set it up. Before packing it away. Excellent service and advice.
