About us
Philosophy
Pro-Ject Audio Systems is an Austrian company, founded in 1990 in
Vienna. The main idea behind this was to produce Hi-fi components with outstanding audiophile
sound quality for the lowest possible price.
In the late 1980´s Heinz Lichtenegger, the man behind Pro-Ject Audio Systems, noticed that the
main brands of the Hi-fi industry did not support the analogue market anymore. Well established
European and American companies began to raise prices for their analogue equipment. Because
Heinz Lichtenegger believed so strongly in analogue music reproduction, he started Pro-Ject
Audio Systems.
On the one hand, the demand for simple but well made turntables at low price levels was still
there, because music lovers wanted to enjoy their record collections that were far too valuable to
be disposed of.
On the other hand, the culture of hearing vinyl records is a lifestyle in its own right and associated with the longing for a more emotional and better sound
quality. Therefore it was only a matter of time before the inevitable return of analogue audio onto the market. So the now legendary first Pro-Ject 1 turntable
was developed. This turntable established a new standard of sound reproduction at this price level and was the starting point of a new analogue era.
The most important design principle of Pro-Ject is to get the best sonic performance for the lowest possible price. Classic technologies and high quality
materials without luxury elements are combined in a simple but appealing and mechanically correct design. Over the years a wide range of different new
models were developed to meet the demand for higher sound quality and special aesthetic requirements.
All Pro-Ject Audio products offer far better sonic performance than you would expect at their price level. Despite the exceptional value for money
they guarantee dependable long term performance and are easy to use. Ambitious music lovers will get very accurate and highly emotional sound
reproduction using Pro-Ject turntables and accessories for less money than most people would expect. Many international press reviews give convincing
documentation about Pro-Ject’s high quality standards.
All products from Pro-Ject Audio are consequently manufactured in the European Union. A close teamwork with production lines in the Czech Republic
and Slovakia and their authorised specialists makes it possible to produce high quantities according to ISO 9001 standards. Pro-Ject Audio makes a point
of producing nearly all of their own critical parts (Motors, Chassis, bearings, tone-arms, etc.) within their own factories. The staff members consist of over
300 skilled personnel. The advantage of “Made in Europe” compared to production in Far-eastern countries is apparent: Reliable communication between
European partners, highest quality standards because of trained personnel and short distances for better protection of the environment.
Pro-Ject is an exemplary paradigm of people working in close cooperation within Europe. This achievement was honoured by the EU with the “Econet-Award”.
Now Pro-Ject is the worlds foremost producer of analogue turntables with a wide range of products for every standard and budget. Representations
in more than 80 countries support customers in all aspects of analogue sound reproduction.
Today analogue audio is still up to date, possibly more than ever. Hearing music from vinyl is ´cool´. Pro-Ject Audio made an essential contribution
in the revival of analogue audio.

THE ESSENCE OF THE ANALOGUE TURNTABLE
Through intensive listening tests we experienced that different materials transmit their
own specific resonating fingerprint to the acoustic result in the playback process. With
a specially developed measurement process, all acoustic effects on sound are now totally
comprehensible. As a result of higher mass the resonance amplitude turns out to be lower
– using combinations of different materials resonances become more diffuse and specific
resonances less apparent.
RPM 10 chassis is the result of our research. Chambers filled with sand and metal lead to
high mass and dampens all resonances effectively. The platter is also very heavy. The
advantage of high mass can result in higher rumble of the main bearing. To avoid
the decline of sound, magnets make the
platter almost float on the inverted
main bearing with its ceramic ball
and plate. All other design features
are well known from the highly
acclaimed RPM 9. Bass dynamics and
overall calmness are clear advantages
compared to all other turntables of the
Pro-Ject family.

THE FASCINATION OF HEARING MUSIC FROM VINYL ON ITS HIGHEST LEVEL
The technical experience coming from developing RPM 10 was also helpful to improve the RPM 9:
the new RPM 9.1 benefits from high mass and improved resonance behaviour. A centralised metal
block gives a defined gravity point and absorbs resonances effectively. The RPM9.1 utilises an
over-sized ceramic ball bearing that is both extremely tough and absorbing. A separate standing
heavy-weight motor block is completely decoupled from the turntable. The carbon tube of the
tone-arm 9cc reduces all vibrations coming from the cartridge directly to the central metal block.
RPM line
ELABORATE TURNTABLE TECHNIQUES AND OUTSTANDING DESIGN
With Pro-Ject RPM 6.1 SB the mass principle with its advantages in optimising resonance was
established at a remarkable price. A heavy weight platter made from MDF and covered with
a vinyl mat is utilized. The design of the chassis is more radical and compacted, comparded to
RPM5. Ceramic main bearing and acrylic sub-platter add up to a resonance-free combination.
Special Sorbothane® feet are used for efficient decoupling of the whole system.

AUDIOPHILE ALL AROUND
The aim to better the hi-fi-classic Pro-Ject-1 is achieved with two different approaches: According
to the principle of “less is more” we exchanged the rectangular chassis in favour of a radical
“drop-form”. In addition, the old resonating main platter was exchanged for MDF which is free
of resonance. A metal ring is mounted around the main bearing for optimised conductance of
unwanted vibrations. The audible benefits are amazing. The sound is calmer and richer without
losing detail.

LISTEN TO ANALOG
It is apparent throughout contemporary culture that modern and classical designs are working,
more than ever before, in harmony. Countless varying product categories, such as cars, watches
and furniture, are all embracing the ever-popular retro trend.
The reasoning behind this love of ‘retro’ is it’s inherent mix of classical beauty, combined with
absolute mechanical precision, high-quality components, and superior performance.
Pro-ject products gave analog a new life in the nineties; our products have successfully shown that
you can listen to music in a better way than with any contemporary digital medium, and it doesn’t
have to cost the earth.
However, now with the Xtension, we at Pro-Ject aim to bring back a classical analog concept from
the eighties, and combine it with our advanced contemporary technologies. After eighteen years of
turntable manufacturing for analog lovers on a budget, we’re delighted to announce our first deck
not subscribed to budgetary limitations; and boy does it deliver.
CLASSIC line
Already, the critically acclaimed 6 Perspex has proved the fantastic result of using magnets to
isolate the subchassis. So consequently, for the Xtension this technology has been re-developed to
utilise new magnetic feet, which almost completely decouple the main plinth. Combine this with the
weighty 25kg total mass of the turntable, and the listener benefits from minimal base resonance.
This is a unique combination of ‘mass loaded’ and ‘floating turntable’ design principals.
In keeping with these principles, the platter is metal due to its higher mass than acrylic. However, the
old standard adoption of pure metal has been abandoned because of its highly-resonant tendencies.
Instead, we’ve found a perfect alloy which we dampened on the inner side with Sorbothane®. Taking
this base, 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.
Another consideration was the amount of energy the tonearm base would have to take from arm
and cartridge movement. These energies have to be controlled, as do those from the motor and
the bearing (they have to be kept away from the tonearm to avoid interference). Consequently, the
tonearm base on the Xtension also benefits from ‘high-mass’ technologies, and is isolated from the
main board by a sheet of Sorbothane®. Importantly though, this board is still able to incorporate the
adoption of different tonearms.
As we originally premised with this turntable, to be in keeping with its ‘classic’ ethos, the Xtension
comes with a beautiful dustcover with adjustable hinges, as well as several finish options in a
high-gloss lacquer. Ultimately, the Xtension truly delivers a timelessly classic, exclusive analogue
experience.
X-tension is available in high gloss lacquer finishes: apple, cherry, piano and olive.

THE ULTIMATE SUB-CHASSIS TURNTABLE FOR THE 21st CENTURY!
Listening tests showed that metal springs and sub-chassis limit the sonic possibilities of our subchassis turntable classic Perspective.
With the 6 perspeX we cut our own path: The sub-chassis is made out of ´Corean´ which shows
no resonances at all and this assembly is supported by magnetic power instead of metal springs
providing excellent decoupling. The result was phenomenal, so we decided to combine this ultimate
turntable design with our new High-End tone-arm Pro-Ject ´9cc Evolution´. As a conclusion, the
revolutionary decoupling concept and the mechanical tone-arm masterpiece show outstanding
abilities in fine dynamics and push the limits of analogue audio one step further.

Speed Box II
A very useful accessory for most Pro-Ject turntables (excluding
Debut III E), that do not have built-in electronic speed change. The
Speed Box II performs this change by the push of a button between
33 and 45 rpm. The quartz regulation and filter circuit gives a stable
speed reference.
Electronic speed control with switch (33/45rpm) for Pro-Ject
and other turntables
• Suitable for turntables with wall power supply (16V/AC
synchronous motor)
• Quartz controlled speed, switchable between 33 and 45rpm
• Microprocessor controlled
• For better smoothness of drive motor
Speed Box SE II
The Quartz-controlled oscillator of the Speed Box SE II generates
clean AC-power without mains distortion. Power outputs are
galvanic decoupled from the input current. Many turntables in the
market (including all the Pro-ject models) use AC synchronous
motors and the Speed Box SE II can be used for ultimate speed
consistency and electronic speed change between 33 and 45rpm.
Additionally, speed can be altered in graduated steps on either
setting.
Electronic speed control with switch (33/45rpm) for Pro-Ject
and other turntables
• Same features as Speed Box II, but for 230 Volt and 16 Volt AC
• Fine adjustable motor speed in ± 20 steps
• Digit display in blue colour
• Ultra stable voltage with mains filter
Features for all Speed Box products
• Solid and compact casing that protects against vibration
and radiation
• Black or silver faceplate
• Separate powersupply (included)
