Description

Extensive research and development has brought us the RPM 9 Carbon that we know today. The high-mass CNC-machined chassis is made from resonance-absorbing MDF and filled with hard-resin-coated steel pellets to form an ultra-massive base. A complex heat treatment and carbon fiber surface coating ensure minimal resonance levels. The mass-loaded chassis is effectively decoupled from its surface with opposing-magnetic feet. Combined with an internally damped, polished aluminum platter with vinyl top, the inverted ceramic main bearing delivers absolute stability of platter speed with minimal rumble.

The massive outboard motor unit is equipped with precise motor control and features a built-in switch for easy switching between 33 & 45rpm. Last but not least, the no-compromise 9cc Evolution tonearm with conical carbon-fiber armtube and inverted bearing ensures perfect tracking even with demanding cartridges.

Inside the Plinth

RPM 9 & 10 Carbon, Xtension 9, 10 & 12 Evolution, and Signature 10 & 12 use plinths that are more than meets the eye. These high-end turntables not only use multi-density fiber (MDF, which absorbs resonance), but inside the plinths are also “central gravity points” filled will steel pellets. Drawing harmful resonance to the central gravity point all but eliminates the potential for plinth and bearing noise to reach the tonearm and cartridge. Pellets are used as opposed to a solid alloy due to their dispersion effect where a solid alloy may resonate. This design heightens the overall mass of these turntables as well, a well-known approach to optimizing sonics.
