Xtension 12 Evolution is a Manual turntable with built in Pro-Ject Speed Box SE.

Pro-Ject bring back a classical analog concept from the eighties, and combine it with advanced contemporary technologies.

Tonearm, Clamp and Dustcover included

Cartridge not included

  

Already, the critically acclaimed 6perspeX 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. With these two magnets located in the feet, the turntable is practically floating. Combine this with the weighty 25 kg 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 high mass. 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 12 Evolution 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.

12CC Tonearm

  • The headshell and armtube are fashioned from a single piece of carbon-fibre. 
  • Conical armtube avoids standing wave reflections. 
  • Inverted bearing design with four ABEC7 spec ballraces. 
  • Arm bearing housing of solid ring type. The massive outside ring is open to avoid resonances. 
  • Sorbothane® -damped counterweight effectively counteracts unwanted resonances. 
  • Counterweight shaft lowered to record level reduces cantilever forces and dynamic wow when playing warped records. 
  • Solid armbase permits accurate height adjustment of armtube and VTA (vertical tracing angle). 
  • Single-screw fixing of armtube allows rotation for easy adjustment of needle azimuth despite fixed headshell. 
  • Straight armtube reduces toe-in error. 
  • Silicone-damped armlift can be adjusted to suit arm height. 
  • The internal wiring consists of flexible high-purity copper from the headshell right through to the gold-plated phono sockets
  • Available with 5-pole standard socket, flying leads or terminal with phono sockets and earth screw
  • Headshell: 0.5” (12.7 mm) standard
  • Mounting distance: 291.6 mm (platter - tonearm base)
  • Supplied counterweights: suitable for cartridges weighing between 4 - 7 g, 6 - 9 g, 8 - 12 g or 10 - 15 g
  • Optional counterweights: suitable for cartridges weighing between 15 - 20 g or 17 - 22 g
  • Downforce range: 10 - 35 mN
  • Effective length: 12” (304.8 mm)
  • Effective mass: 10.5 g
  • Overhang: 13.2 mm
  • Weight: 271 g (without counterweight)
