T2 Super Phono – A New Contender

The T2 Super Phono turntable/preamp combination sensibly enhances our critically acclaimed T1 formula. It introduces new audiophile features & sets a higher standard of performance in its class & price range!

Premium Built-In Phono Stage

The T2 Super Phono implements a high-quality dual-stage split-passive MM phono preamp (first seen in our critically acclaimed T2 W). The larger plinth makes way for more & better circuitry in the junction box. We’ve taken this opportunity to design a circuit that leaves other built-in MM phono stages in the dust! Supplied with a high-value Sumiko Rainier MM cartridge ($149 value), this is a true hi-fi playback system with no corners cut. Keep in mind that the circuit can be disengaged with the push of a button should you want to upgrade to a low-output MC cartridge.

Top-Quality Materials

The elegantly crafted CNC-machined plinth has been expanded in size to enhance stability & tonearm geometry. Available in 3 striking finishes (gloss black, satin white or Walnut laminate), no plastic is used in its construction! Also free of resonant hollow spaces, it effectively prevents unwanted vibration within the chassis. Compared to the T1, the glass platter is thicker & heavier which ensures a zero-resonance design that eliminates the shortcomings associated with plastic or cheap steel alternatives. Purpose-selected turntable feet effectively isolate the T2 from ambient vibrations in the vicinity of your hi-fi system.

Speed Control, Motor & Drive

The T2’s motor and drive system remain identical to those found in the T1. The motor drives the flat belt that in turn drives the anti-resonant sub-platter. The sub-platter is mounted to an ultra-precise main bearing comprised of a hardened steel axle in brass bushing (machined to a tolerance of 0.001mm!). Where most alternative products use unregulated DC motors with wide speed fluctuations, the T2 uses our electronically-regulated precision-speed AC motor. Electronic speed change between 33 and 45rpm is accessible with the rocker switch as well! All told, it’s a highly-stable & ultra-low-noise drive system.

Tonearm & Anti-Skating

The T2’s tonearm has been improved for better cartridge geometry. Still a one-piece aluminum design, its effective length improves to 9″. It adds an updated low-friction bearing to accommodate the increased length and diameter for absolute accuracy in use. Aside from clean aesthetics, the integrated headshell is a key player in minimizing armtube resonance (bonded headshells have adverse effects in terms of resonance). The T2 also features user-friendly spring-based anti-skating for fast and accurate setup. Since the Sumiko Rainier is factory-aligned with the tracking force set, simply turn the wheel to your desired value and you’re done with tonearm adjustments!

Sumiko Rainier MM Phono Cartridge

The T2 Super Phono includes the acclaimed high-value Sumiko Rainier MM phono cartridge which synergizes beautifully with the built-in phono stage. The cartridge is factory-aligned with the tracking force set!

Semi-Balanced Phono Cable

Like the T1, the T2 is topped-off with shielded, semi-symmetrical, low-capacitance phono cables purpose-designed by Pro-Ject for use with turntables. We also include an acrylic dust cover with adjustable hinges for your convenience. Everything you need is in the box and can be assembled in minutes!
