The 6 Perspex SB takes the same design as its predecessor, but utilises a superior motor.prod_large_3_10_2016_351

The new perimeter drive-belt mechanism  has been inspired by the recent introduction of the RPM 10 Carbon turntable, which uses a fully-decoupled motor. With the 6 Perspex SB, the motor sits within its own cut-out inside the main plinth, lined with damping material for reduced resonance. The motor itself is an AC design, which is regulated by its own built-in speed controller. This speed controller not only offers easy switching between   331/3     and   45rpm,   but   it    also

generates an entirely fresh new sine wave for the motor – filtering out the fluctuations and distortions associated with a typical mains supply, for reduced resonance.

The turntable’s sub-chassis is made of Corian®, a solid-surface material renowned for its isolation properties. This sub-chassis is then isolated from the main plinth by magnetic power, effectively creating a “floating” platform free from unwanted vibrations. The precision-balanced vinyl sandwich platter rides on the sub-chassis utilising an inverted main bearing, which combines a stainless-steel axle with a ceramic ball. The platter’s 4mm thick vinyl top-layer is the perfect interface for a playing record, and eliminates the need for any form of turntable mat. The platter is finished with a threaded spindle, to accommodate the supplied screw-able record clamp.

The 6 Perspex SB is finished with Pro-Ject’s coveted 9CC Evolution tonearm for a true high-end experience. 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 6 Perspex SB is the complete audiophile turntable, but at a very appealing price.
