Minimalist design for the best sound quality
Engineered to the highest standard and made from top quality materials, the RMP 5 Carbon puts sound quality before features. The minimalist design save money on features and even accessories such as a lid, so that you can get the highest technical spec for the money. And what a spec it is. De-coupled motor, carbon-topped plinth, ceramic bearing and a carbon tonearm that’s usually fitted to much more expensive decks, all make the RPM 5 Carbon an exceptional turntable for the money.
High performance, de-coupled motor for performance benefits
De-coupling the motor from the plinth greatly reduces the chances of vibration spoiling the sound quality. Cartridge pick-ups are very sensitive to vibration, so the better isolated the motor is, the better. The de-coupled motor promotes a clearer, more detailed sound with higher levels of resolution.
Carbon-topped, MDF plinth
The carbon-topped plinth doesn’t just look great, it also provides a useful rigidity function. By making the already stiff MDF platter even more rigid, the platter flexes less, helping reduce distortion and improve the music’s dynamic agility. In short, this is a turntable that’s foot-tappingly funky.
Acoustically inert acrylic platter for uncoloured sound
Unlike glass or metal platters, the standard acrylic platter fitted to the RPM 5 Carbon doesn’t ring or resonate in way that can affect the sound quality. Acoustically inert, it means you get to hear your music just as the artist intended. For further damping, a screw-on record clamp is supplied.
9CC Evolution carbon-fibre tonearm
The Evolution version of the famous 9CC carbon-fibre tonearm is further highlight. Top features include a massively oversized outer ring and Sorbothane damped counterweights. The oversized outer ring is open to avoid resonance yet also very rigid to provide the most stable platform for the arm to work from. The damped counter weights effectively counteract unwanted resonance. A carbon-fibre tonearm tube provides significant benefits to the sound quality. Being stiffer than steel, the tonearm is more rigid than usual, making the music sound tighter, punchier and more detailed than before.
