Damped, Aluminium-Machined Platter

The Classic Evo boasts a heavy aluminium platter damped with a ring of thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) which optimises resonance behaviour. Many older turntables feature cast metal platters. Cast platters are heavy (which is good for speed constancy and low wow and flutter) but suffer from ringing effects which cause colouration of the sound. The platter of The Classic Evo is precisely machined out of a special aluminium alloy and damped with TPE, which offers special damping abilities.

Diamond-Cut Aluminium Sub-Platter

The Classic Evo is fitted with a diamond cut precision aluminium sub-platter. Just like the 175 VPO, this hugely improves friction and tolerance. This extraordinarily sophisticated part is accurately machined and guarantees incredible isolation between bearing noise and the platter itself.

All New Carbon/Aluminium Tonearm

This radical new tonearm design is the result of Project’s 25 years of experience in mechanical construction. The tonearm tube is made out of a sandwich of carbon and aluminium: carbon for stiffness and speed, aluminium for reduced resonance. The upgraded bearing facilitates frictionless vertical and horizontal movement, guaranteeing precise tracking across the entire duration of the record. The counterweight incorporates a TPE damper which reduces the amplitude of the tonearm and cartridge resonance by 50%.

As typical for Pro-Ject but absolutely not standard at this price point, azimuth and VTA can be adjusted. enabling the use of variety of cartridges.
