The Pro-Ject Xtension 10 chassis is very unique in it's design. Made of high density MDF, the plinth is then filled with metal sand, allowing the base to have a high mass that is non-resonant.
Magnetic, floating feet decouple the main plinth from its base. This, combined with a weighty 22 kg total turntable mass result in a unique combination of ‘mass loaded’ and ‘floating turntable’ design principles.
Instead of a generic turntable design of pure aluminium or steel, we’ve found the perfect alloy for the for the main platter of the Pro-Ject Xtension 10 Evolution. Damped on the inner side with Sorbothane® to reduce vibrations, our design also pushes the envelope with the inclusion of an in-built recycled Vinyl mat on the surface.
The final product subsequently benefits from a wonderfully resonance-free, heavy platter, that runs silently on an inverted ceramic ball bearing with magnetic suspension and is ideal for coupling a record directly on its surface.
