Pro-Ject Xtension 10
Pro-Ject is onto something wonderful here: A turntable that hits all the right sonic notes, while providing a rare combination of intellectual and emotional connection to the music. A slightly scaled-down edition of the Xtension 12, the 10 offers a smaller footprint but similar weight. The design features a mass-loaded, magnetically floated sub-chassis, a 3”-tall, 12.6-pound vinyl/ alloy platter, a precision ceramic bearing, and a three-speed AC motor. The Xtension 10 can be purchased with a SuperPack option that includes a Sumiko Blackbird cartridge and an upgraded ’arm cable. Regardless of cartridge, the Xtension 10 provides not only a high level of musical satisfaction but does so in a way that delivers a powerful emotional wallop.
