Pro-Ject’s Xtension 9 S-Shape incorporates all our turntable design experience from more than 25 years in a slim-line size to fit standard audio racks. Xtension 9 chassis is made from MDF filled with metal granulate, creating a resonance-dampening mass. Magnetic feet, which decouple the main plinth from its base, are combined with a weighty 16kg total turntable mass. The result is a unique combination of ‘mass loaded’ and ‘floating turntable’ design principles. Instead of pure metal for the main platter, we’ve found a perfect alloy which we damped on with thermoplastic elastomers (TPE).

Additionally, we’ve glued recycled Vinyl records to the top (which act as a perfect mat) and bake this ‘sandwich’ before precision balancing it. The final product subsequently benefits from a wonderfully resonance-free, heavy platter, that runs ultra-silently on an inverted ceramic ball bearing with magnetic suspension. Pro-Ject Xtension 9 S-Shape includes a top-class highend S-Shape aluminum tonearm and comes complete with a beautiful dustcover. The top-grade aluminum S-Shaped tonearm offers a harmonic, and engaging sound. Because of the detachable headshell, it is very easy to swap out cartridges. For your daily use, you can utilize an MM system and for pure listening pleasure, you can change to an MC system.
