The Xperience Classic is a gorgeous turntable with high performance to match, setting a new standard of performance in this range. Every element of the Xperience was chosen to ride the fine line of excellent sound quality and elegant aesthetic, providing an unparalleled listening experience. The Xperience Classic comes with a pre-mounted Sumiko Blue Point No. 2 High Output Moving Coil cartridge and is available in three gorgeous finishes, Piano Black, Mahogany and Olive Wood. These are gorgeous veneers, with thick glossy coatings which truly showcase each finish.
The Xperience Classic has an extremely innovative platter design. The 4.4Lb MDF platter is both massive and non-resonant and topped with Pro-Ject’s proprietary vinyl surface derived from melted down LPs. The platter is mated to a very low-noise spindle made from chrome-plated stainless steel which rests on a super-slick Teflon bearing plate with a durable bronze bearing housing. The thick MDF plinth is isolated from external noise via three height-adjustable Sorbothane damped aluminum cone shaped feet. Pro-ject created a new motor mount design for the Xperience Classic, the super-quiet motor is decoupled from the plinth eliminating unwanted vibration and resonance.
The Xperience Classic receives the super-sexy carbon fiber Pro-Ject 9cc tonearm; a very unique arm created entirely from carbon fiber from the pivot point forward. This design eliminates micro-vibration allowing the arm to retrieve more detail and improving rhythm and pacing. The 9cc uses an inverted thrust bearing for superior linearity, hardened stainless points rest in ultra-smooth sapphire thrust pads for minimal friction. The 9cc offers easy VTA, Azimuth and overhang adjustments and like all Pro-Ject top-line tonearms features detachable RCA cables.
