Pro-Ject X2/Sumiko Moonstone
The X2 is made for those who take great joy in the fine details, the build-quality, the high-grade materials and even more audio performance. Structurally, the X2 is supported by its large, heavy, dense and stiff MDF structure, reducing unwanted resonances to almost imperceptible levels. By adding this extra mass, the X2 is even quieter, allowing the vinyl reproduction to become more detailed and precise. Inside, it houses a sophisticated DC/AC generator board which, combined with the convenient speed control board, delivers clean and stable power to the silent motor system. To get the best performance out of it, we have improved the motor suspension. Remaining vibrations are damped and eliminated, so they are not transmitted onto the chassis, platter and cartridge. The X2‘s motor chassis is carefully balanced and suspended on a precision tuned TPE belt; this way the motor chassis is effectively decoupled from the main plinth for optimal performance. It is free floating, horizontally completely level and able to operate at the highest performance levels. In the X2, the motor drives a new, heavy, non-resonant Acryl platter via a sub-platter drive system and a premium grade main bearing for liquid smooth rotation. The new 9” carbon/ aluminium sandwich construction tonearm results in better internal damping. This also means, the entire tonearm bearing is upgraded to compensate for the extra mass; altogether tracking will be more precise, stable and accurate. The increased mass makes the tonearm an excellent fit for low compliance MC cartridges. Finished as a one-piece, with no resonance-inducing headshell, the X2 can also be set for azimuth and VTA adjustment. The TPE damped counterweight reduces arm-cartridge resonances by as much as 50%.
Supplied either with or without a premium Pick it 2M-Silver cartridge it can be ready to play within a few minutes of unboxing. Also supplied in the box is our Connect-IT E RCA cables, a semi-balanced, low-capacitance cable with superior shielding that’s optimized for turntable use. Lastly, height-adjustable feet in their Alu/ TPE sandwich construction are a very exclusive but necessary feature to level the turntable and effectively isolate it from the surface it is placed on.
Features include electronic speed control with 33/45 rpm speed change, which acts as “Speed Box” with ultimate speed stability, electronically regulated precision motor with improved damping construction for the least amount of vibration and noise, sub-platter with extremely low 0.001mm bearing tolerances, stainless steel platter-bearing with soft bronze bushing and teflon mirrors for lowest rumble and noise, and a stable, accurate speed transmission, a 9” one-piece tonearm tube with best internal damping by the ultra rigid carbon/aluminum sandwich construction, TPE damped counterweight reduces arm-cartridge resonances by 50%, and Azimuth and VTA adjustement.
Precise Sumiko Moonmstone cartridge is bundled here.
There is a resonance free, 2 kg heavy acryl platter, heavy, 50mm thick, highest quality CNC‘d MDF chassis, the luxury of 8 layers of painting and hand-polished finish or real-wood, satin-waxed veneer, super shielded, semi-symmetrical, low-capacitance phono cables – purpose designed by Pro-Ject, and height adjustable, aluminum machined, vibration absorbing feet.
