Project Xtension 9 SuperPack Turntable
- High-end hi-fi turntable based on the Xtension 10
- Uses both 'high-mass' and 'floating turntable' principles
- Pre-fitted with 9CC Evolution and Ortofon Quintet Black cartridge
The Xtension 9 is an ideal solution for anyone who is looking for the exceptional sound quality of a high-end turntable, but with a more compact foot-print.
Incorporating 20+ years of turntable design experience, the Xtension 9's structure uses a combination of the popular 'mass-loaded' and 'floating turntable' design principles. Most high-end designs tend to employ one of these principles, but the Xtension 9 uses both. It does this by placing the MDF chassis (which is high-mass and anti-resonant) onto three powerful magnetic feet, effectively "floating" the heavy turntable above the stand on which it sits.
The platter used on the Xtension 9 is similar to that found on the RPM 9 Carbon, and is directly inspired by the superior Xtension 10 platter. The precision-balanced platter is made from a purpose-chosen metal alloy, which has then been damped on the inside with a Thermo-Plastic Elastomer (TPE) compound. The top of the platter is finished with recycled vinyl records, which acts as the perfect playback platform for your records - without the need for an extra mat. The result is a resonance-free, heavy platter that runs ultra-silently on an inverted ceramic ball-bearing thanks to some added magnetic isolation.
Operation of the Xtension 9 is made effortlessly simple by the integrated speed control. Providing a clean, regulated power signal to the high-grade motor, the built-in speed control allows for easy switching between 33 and 45RPM speeds.
The Xtension 9 is sold with Pro-Ject's popular 9CC Evolution tonearm pre-installed. The 9” tonearm boasts a one-piece conical carbon fibre tube, TPE-damped counterweights and an inverted bearing design that allows for perfect tracking and minimal resonance, even with demanding pick-up cartridges.
The Xtension 9 is only available in the UK as the Xtension 9 SuperPack. Here, the Xtension 9 is supplied as standard with the coveted Ortofon Quintet Black cartridge. The Quintet Black uses all of Ortofon's advanced knowledge of micro-technologies to deliver a sound performance that puts others to shame. In combination with the Xtension 9, the sound is unrivalled for the price.
To help complete the package, the Xtension 9 SuperPack is also supplied with a removable dust cover, high-quality output cable and a heavy-weight record puck.
