In 2011, the Xtension 12 was introduced as Pro-Ject Audio System's first "money-no-object" turntable, having been designed to celebrate the company's 20th anniversary. The Xtension 10 takes all of that 20+ years of experience and reduces the Xtension 12 into a more accessible form, at an even more appealing price.
The Xtension 10'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 10 uses both. It does this by placing the thick MDF chassis, which is filled with metal sand (making it very high-mass and anti-resonant), onto four powerful magnetic feet, effectively "floating" the heavy turntable above the stand on which it sits.
The platter used on the Xtension 10 is similar to that found on the RPM 10 Carbon and is directly taken from the larger Xtension 12. The precision-balanced platter is made from a purpose-chosen metal alloy, which has then been dumped on the inside with Sorbothane®. 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 suspension.
Operation of the Xtension 10 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, 45 and 78RPM speeds. The useful step-function, also allows you to fine-tune the speed incrementally for absolutely perfect playback.
The Xtension 10 is sold with Pro-Ject's popular 10CC Evolution tonearm pre-installed. Constructed from carbon-fibre, the armtube is efficiently designed to lead parasitic vibrations away from the cartridge and into the heavy anti-resonant assembly, which guarantees precise cartridge tracking. For added isolation from the chassis, the 10CC Evolution tonearm is also mounted onto a sheet of Sorbothane®.
With its true high-end specifications, the Xtension 10 is capable of delivering a toe-tapping musical performance that belies the price. To help complete the package, the turntable is also supplied with a removable dust cover and a heavy-weight record puck.
