Following on from the smash hit Genie 3, the Project RPM 3 Carbon is set to be another class-leader.

Audiophile-quality engineering

With its decoupled motor, the RPM 3 Carbon is well isolated, with little chance of motor vibration affecting the sound quality. The new vinyl topped sandwich platter offers the perfect interface for your records. With a vinyl-to-vinyl coupling, there's no need for a mat as the synergy between the two is ideal.

Carbon fibre tone-arm
Usually only found on much more expensive turntables, a carbon fibre tone-arm tube provides significant benefits to the sound quality. Being stiffer than steel, the tone are helps relay the music more accurately and there's reduced arm resonance. In short, the music sounds tighter, punchier and more detailed.

Ortofon 2M Silver cartridge fitted
Matching the hi-spec arm is an equally impressive cartridge. With a value of over £100, this cartridge is a considerable step-up over typical budget designs. The advantages of such a high quality cartridge include a wider frequency response for deeper bass and more detailed treble, plus less wear on your records.

Sleek minimalist styling
Form strictly follows function with the RPM 3. Nothing is there that doesn't need to be, which also means the RPM3 fits smaller spaces that bulkier turntables wouldn't.

With its engineering excellence and precision sound to match, the Pro-Ject RPM 3 offers a treat for your vinyl.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound I bought the Pro-ject RPM 3 Carbon from Richer Sound around 2 weeks ago. The turntable is a wonderful addition to my home. It has a great sound, looks fantastic and is less complicated to assemble than thought. First Class.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible quality for the price Having gone back to vinyl after a number of years, this turntable reminds me of how music should sound! I did a comparison using the same song tracks from streaming and cd and the pro-ject carbon win hands down. Best VFM of all my hi-fi purchased m

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A design masterpiece I bought the upgraded version with the better cartridge because the price difference was a no brainier. It also looks fantastic! I am in the music business and with the release of more and vinyl I needed a quality turntable to listen to fresh pressings. I cannot fault it other than the set up which is a little fiddly but there is a sense of achievement when done. Great for the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value At this price point, the Pro-Ject RPM 3 Carbon deserves serious consideration - and I enjoyed the additional bonus of a six year warranty as well as the truly commendable Richer Sounds customer service. However, it's worth noting that, as shipped, mine didn't include a (felt) turntable mat; which, for me wasn't an issue - I prefer to use a cork alternative, i.e. Pro-Ject Cork IT Turntable Mat. I've also upgraded the included Ortofon 2M Silver cartridge - & fitted the 2M Blue stylus; an especially straightforward procedure. As was the overall set-up procedure - a plastic stylus tracking force gauge is included (and inexpensive electronic alternatives are readily available online). IMHO the cork turntable mat along with the 2M Blue stylus improved this already excellent turntable - although I should stress that many users will be perfectly content with the turntable as supplied.
