The Latest Evolution in Xtension Turntables
The Xtension 9 Evolution turntable incorporates all of Pro-Ject's turntable design experience from more than twenty years in a slim-line component that is sized to fit standard audio racks.
The chassis is made from MDF filled with metal sand to achieve high mass and non-resonance. Magnetic feet, which decouple the main plinth from its base, are combined with a weighty 35-lb. total turntable mass. The result is a unique combination of 'mass loading' and 'floating turntable' design principles.
Sophisticated 'Sandwich' Platter
Instead of the standard approach of using pure metal for the main platter, Pro-Ject has developed what the company calls a "perfect alloy," which is damped on the inner side with Sorbothane. Next, Pro-Ject glued recycled vinyl records to the top to act as a "perfect" mat and then baked this sophisticated 'sandwich' before precision balancing it. The final product becomes a wonderfully resonance-free, heavy platter that runs ultra-silently on an inverted ceramic ball bearing with magnetic suspension.
Pro-Ject 9cc Carbon-Fiber Tonearm
The Xtension 9 Evolution comes with a custom Pro-Ject 9cc tonearm. Both the tone arm and arm tube are fashioned from a single piece of carbon-fiber. The conical carbon-fiber arm tube resists standing wave reflections for cleaner sound. The inverted tonearm bearing comprises four hardened stainless tips in ABEC7 spec ball races. Rings provide very solid arm bearing housings. The outside ring is open to avoid resonances.
Adjustability features ensure the best possible playback. The design of counterweight effectively counteracts unwanted resonances. The counterweight shaft lowered to the record level reduces cantilever forces and dynamic wow when playing warped records. The solid arm base permits accurate height adjustment of the arm tube and VTA (vertical tracking angle). The included counterweight is suitable for cartridges weighing between 6 and 10 grams. The single-screw attachment of the arm tube allows rotation for easy adjustment of needle azimuth despite the fixed headshell.
The internal wiring consists of flexible high-purity copper from the headshell right through to the gold-plated phono jacks. The silicone-damped arm lift can be adjusted to suit the working height of the arm.
Electronic Speed Control
The Xtension 9 offers electronic speed control at the push of a button. No fumbling with belts and pulleys when you want to change speed. The quartz regulation and filter circuit deliver superior speed stability for smooth and undisturbed motor operation.
Ortofon Quintet Black MC Moving Coil Cartridge
Worth £649, the Ortofon Quintet Black comes pre-fitted to the Xtension 9. Graced with a Nude Shibata diamond, the Quintet Black is considered one of the best stylus profiles available, mounted on a high-performance Boron cantilever. The Shibata’s slim, highly polished profile allows an exceedingly wide contact area to the walls of the groove and ensures detailed and pure reproduction through out the spectrum, including even the most high frequency groove details.
Also included with the Xtension 9 Evolution is a beautiful dustcover that will help protect your turntable.

Superlative vinyl performance from a compact luxurious turntable/arm configuration!
Xtension 9 Evolution incorporates all our turntable design experience from more than 20 years in a slim-line size to fit standard audio racks. Xtension 9 chassis is made from MDF filled with metal granulate, that gives high mass and is non-resonant. Magnetic feet, which decouple the main plinth from its base, are combined with a weighty 16kg total turntable mass. The result is a unique combination of 'mass loaded' and 'floating turntable' design principles. Instead of pure metal for the main platter, we've found a perfect alloy which we damped on with thermo plastc elastomers (TPE). Additionally 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, that runs ultra-silently on an inverted ceramic ball bearing with magnetic suspension. Pro-Ject Xtension 9 Evolution includes a top-class highend tonearm „9cc Evolution“ and comes complete with a beautiful dustcover.
Pro-Ject Audio Systems offers their highend turntables with premium 5pin RCA unbalanced arm cable or - by request - with premium balanced 5pin XLR connection to Pro-Ject Phono Box RS preamplifier.
