True Balanced Connection
Pro-Ject are launching a whole line of new “True Balanced Connection” components that feature a balanced connection for your phono setup. The X8 is the first turntable to feature this new phono technology.
Balanced audio connections are terrific for minimising noise from external interferences, and moving coil cartridges are themselves naturally balanced signal transducers, so introducing a balanced connector on Pro-Ject's higher end turntables makes sense. The vivid stereo imaging and inky black silences you can expect from 'True Balanced' are a true step forward for anyone who loves great sound.
The chassis houses a sophisticated DC/AC generator board which, combined with the convenient speed control board, delivers clean and stable power to the quiet-running motor. Switching speeds is controlled with the simple touch of a button.
