The latest edition to the RPM range of turntables follows on from where the hugely popular Genie 3 left off. Utilising a range of innovative improvements over its predecessor, the RPM 1 Carbon stands out from the crowd with its stunning design, impeccable sound and affordable price.

Key Features:

  • Precision belt drive using synchronous motor
  • Ultra-precision DC-driven AC generator motor power
  • Inverted platter bearing with ceramic ball
  • Platter made from MDF using felt mat
  • 8,6” S-shaped tonearm made from carbon, aluminium, resin utilising special heat and pressure treatments
  • Magnetic anti-skating
  • Counterweight with TPE damping
  • Pre-fitted Ortofon 2M Red cartridge
  • 3 high-gloss colours (black, red, white)
  • Lid available as optional extra

The new RPM 1 Carbon design has been upgraded to significantly reduce resonance across the turntable. While maintaining the instantly recognisable shape, this turntable boasts improvements in the tonearm, bearing, and motor.

The brand new tonearm is a carbon fibre/aluminium resin construct, made using special heat and pressure treatments. The result of this new design is a tonearm that is more solid and anti-resonant than ever before at this price, while maintaining a light weight. The arm is finished off with a pre-fitted Ortofon 2m Red cartridge and a new magnetic anti-skate mechanism. The improved counterweight also utilises TPE damping in the form of an anti-resonant ring around the fixing point.

The completely decoupled motor is based upon the same design as the Xpression Carbon, powered by an AC generator that's connected to the new DC power supply. The inverted main bearing now utilises a ceramic ball, offering a more fluid and consistent platter rotation than ever before.

Available in Red, White or Black high gloss finishes, the RPM 1 Carbon is a turntable package that offers truly phenomenal value for money.
