Outstanding performance from a compact and luxurious turntable configuration.
The chopping block chassis of Pro-Ject Audio’s 2Xperience SB in Palisander is a true beauty. But don’t be fooled by its minimal design, this record player is loaded with high-end features to make even the most discerning audiophile stand up. Partner its quality with Ortofon’s 2M Blue and you’ve got a very serious turntable/cartridge combination at a scratch of the original price.
Its non-resonant MDF construction wrapped in a stunning timber veneer weighs in at 7.7kg. The greater mass and MDF, in conjunction with a TPE suspended motor, isolate potential resonant distortions affecting sound quality. Add to this three machined aluminium vibration damping feet, the 9cc Evo tonearm, its resonance-free sandwich platter and a single button press speed change from 33 to 45 and the 2Xperience SB delivers precise timing and an aesthetic as pretty as its playback.
