Pro-Ject 2 Xperience SB Turntable Announced

Pro-Ject 2 Xperience SB Turntable Announced

Didcot, Oxfordshire – 17th February, 2015

Pro-Ject Audio Systems, the world renowned manufacturers of premium hi-fi turntables, are adding to their current range of record players with a new version of the hugely successful 2 Xperience design. The 2 Xperience SB is a high-quality turntable package that provides a first-class listening experience to anyone interested in pure musical enjoyment.

The new 2 Xperience SB incorporates over 20 years of turntable design experience to produce a relatively compact and affordable high-end vinyl record player that offers truly outstanding performance.

Based on the same basic plinth design as its predecessor, the 2 Xperience SB is available in four stunning finishes – Piano Black, Olive (shown), Walnut and Mahogany. It also utilises the same proven vinyl-topped sandwich platter to ensure a completely stable and reliable platform on which to place your records. Where the 2 Xperience SB is elevated to a new performance level is with the addition of a new motor, new automatic speed control and new tonearm.

The new precision motor is driven by an efficient DC power supply and regulated by a built-in electronic speed changer. So not only does the neatly integrated speed control offer easy switching between 331/3 and 45RPM, but it also acts as an AC generator for the motor to ensure a clean and stable power signal. The pre-installed 9CC Evolution tonearm has been proven by other Pro-Ject turntables – such as the EISA award winning Xtension 9 SuperPack – to offer an unrivalled performance for the cost. Benefiting from a light-weight one-piece carbon fibre tube that’s mounted inside a heavy assembly, which draws vibrations away from the signal wires, and finished with a sorbothane-damped counterweight; it typifies the audiophile characteristics of the whole turntable.

 

The turntable is supplied with an Ortofon 2M Silver cartridge pre-fitted. Based on the iconic 2M Red design, this special version found only on Pro-Ject turntables benefits from silver voice coils in the generator system to produce a clean, musical performance. An acrylic dust cover, screw-on record clamp and expertly engineered coned feet finish off the package. The 2 Xperience SB is a record player with the convenience of an affordable design but the sound characteristics of a high-end vinyl spinner.

The 2 Xperience SB will be shown in the UK for the first time at Bristol Sound & Vision Show, 2015. Visit us in Room 418 to get a first-look.

SRP £1,050.00

The Pro-Ject 2 Xperience SB will be available in the UK from March 2015.
