Based on the same basic design as its predecessor, the 2 Xperience SB provides minimum resonance with its heavy MDF plinth made using non-resonant construction techniques. The precision sandwich platter offers the perfect vinyl play back surface with its non-resonant properties and an ideal top surface to place your vinyl directly on to. 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 33 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 long-proven 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.
