The RPM 9 Car­bon is Pro-ject’s “tuner” spe­cial, with sig­nif­i­cant up­grades over the stock RPM 9.2. There is a new mo­tor, a new DC-driven power sup­ply that fea­tures an im­proved AC gen­er­a­tor for speed sta­bil­ity, and a newly up­graded plat­ter and car­bon­wrapped chas­sis. Son­ics are dev­il­ishly good. Back­grounds are jet-black with tim­bres softly tinted to the warmer end of the tonal spec­trum. Arpeg­gios are liq­uid and ar­tic­u­late, and there is an im­pres­sive sense of air and lift in the up­per oc­taves. With the RPM 9 Car­bon’s over­ar­ch­ing sense of bal­ance across all sonic cri­te­ria, LPs sound el­e­gantly com­posed and well-nigh ef­fort­less. With­out qual­i­fi­ca­tion, this is a ter­rific pack­age, cer­tain to give a great many lucky own­ers years of vinyl-spin­ning thrills.
