Xtension 9 Evolution - Official Pro-Ject Audio Systems USA
Description

The Pro-Ject Xtension 9 Evolution is a hi-fi turntable with a chassis is made from high-class ultra dense MDF, that gives high mass and is non-resonant.

Unique magnetic feet decouple the main plinth from its base. These feet isolate the weighty 35 lb total turntable mass from outer vibration and add up to a combination of ‘mass loaded’ principle and ‘floating turntable’ design. Instead of a pure metal main platter, we found a perfect aluminum alloy that is damped with thermo plastic elastomers (TPE).

Additionally, we 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 wonderful resonance-free, heavy platter, that runs ultra-silent on an inverted ceramic bearing (ball & plate) with magnetic suspension. This virtually reduces the platter mass, so the platter `floats´ on the bearing with the lowest rumble possible. Xtension 9 Evolution features a quartz-generated high precision electronic speed regulation (Speed Box) with microprocessor control. An absolutely clean AC power is generated, which is led directly into a built-in synchronous motor. Decoupling from mains interference, quartz regulation and dedicated filter circuit gives a far better speed stability for smooth and undisturbed motor operation. This results in significant sound improvement through superior motor running smoothness and adds convenience because speed change between 33 & 45 can be done electronically.
