The RPM 10 Carbon’s platter is the same as that found on the acclaimed Xtension 10 record player. The polished aluminium exterior is internally lined with Thermo-Plastic Elastomer (TPE) damping material and topped with vinyl. The whole platter sits on top of a stainless steel spindle with inverted ceramic main bearing to deliver an absolutely stable turntable rotation with extra-low rumble.
The RPM 10 Carbon’s perimeter drive belt mechanism is driven by a completely decoupled heavyweight motor. The motor sits on top of a custom-designed steel base for improved stability. Electronic speed-change between 33 and 45rpm is built into the motor, which also employs its own AC power generator PCB, for a clean mains supply and reduced speed variance.
The highly-acclaimed 10CC Evolution Tonearm is pre-installed on the RPM 10 Carbon. This coveted design is found on many other high-end record players, and boasts a conical carbon fibre tube and inverted bearing design that offers superior rigidity with reduced mass. The high-quality internal wiring and selection of TPE-damped counterweights also makes the tonearm suitable for use with almost any high-end pick-up cartridge. For improved signal transmission, the tonearm is supplied with a 5-Pin to RCA Connect-IT CC cable.
The RPM 10 Carbon comes complete with the Ground-IT Carbon base and a heavy record pluck, making it a complete high-end package.
