The Signature 10 is a true high-end turntable designed by Pro-Ject Audio Systems. Designed as a more affordable, easier to accommodate version of the superior Signature 12, the Signature 10 uses many of the coveted design aspects of the flagship.
The large, beautifully finished plinth is made from MDF, packed with metal granulate to create a heavy, non-resonant base for the turntable. This plinth then sits on four powerful magnetic feet, which are lined with TPE pillows, for effective decoupling from a hi-fi stand. The result is a successful combination of the 'high-mass' and 'floating turntable' design principles that were first successfully merged by Pro-Ject with the high-end Xtension turntables.
On top of the main plinth, the Signature 10 uses a mass-loaded magnetic sub-chassis, which is perfect for reducing resonance and noise transfer to the cartridge. The large, heavy main platter - taken directly from the Signature 12 turntable, rides on this sub-chassis, rotating on an inverted ceramic main bearing. The main platter itself is machined from a specially selected, resonance-optimised metal alloy, which is internally lined with damping material and topped with melted vinyl records. The turntable is finished with the Signature Record Puck as part of the package.
The external motor is powered by a high-tolerance speed controller, which also allows for easy switching between 33 and 45RPM. The motor rotates the platter via a purpose designed perimeter drive belt, which offers exceptional timing.
The striking 10" Signature tonearm is a unique Pro-Ject design. Unlike anything else in the range, Pro-Ject's Signature Tonearms are made from different metal and aluminium alloys and are tooled with ultra-precise diamond cutters on CNC machinery. Inside the tonearm tube, damping material is meticulously applied to add mass and acoustic integrity, but in order to keep the iconic toe-tapping sound that Pro-Ject is associated with, the tube is mounted on a special, oil-damped Uni-Pivot bearing. To further aid exact set-up, Signature Tonearms can have the VTA, Azimuth and Overhang easily adjusted. The use of a detachable headshell allows the Signature 10 to easily accommodate a variety of high-end cartridges, whether they're for a specific use (such as Mono recordings) or to suit a certain musical style or genre.
The Signature 10 is a true audiophile device, taking all the elements of the flagship but making them more accessible and easier to fit into an existing space.
