Product Description

The 2Xperience SB DC is the latest evolution of the 2Xperience turntable from Pro-Ject. This high-quality turntable, suitable for mid to high-end systems now hosts a plethora of improvements from its predecessor.

Overview

The audiophile 2Xperience SB DC provides minimum resonance with its heavy MDF plinth made using non-resonant construction techniques. The precision sandwich platter offers the perfect vinyl playback surface with its non-resonant properties and an ideal top surface to place your vinyl directly on.

The new 9V AC synchronous motor - located out in the open in the back left hand corner - allows for pristine play back speed and with the ability to switch between 33 and 45 RPM at the push of a button. The speed control mechanism is powered by a new 15V DC power supply in order to achieve a clean noise-free electrical signal to the motor. It actually generates a high-purity sine wave of a frequency to drive the motor at the chosen speed. The 2Xperience SB sees the inclusion of a 9CC Evolution carbon-fibre tonearm that adds to the already audiophile grade package as well as being pre-fitted and professionally aligned with a top-of-the-range Ortofon 2M Black Moving Magnet cartridge. Obviously as is popular today, the 2Xperience SB-DC is a fully manual, belt drive turntable and comes supplied with a high-quality hinged acrylic lid/dustcover.

Precision-Built For High Performance: The 230mm Evolution 9CC carbon-fibre tonearm tube is slightly tapered along its length to minimise standing wave reflections and combined with integrated headshell suits the supplied Ortofon 2M Black Moving Magnet Cartridge perfectly. The Ortofon 2M Black is a very significant upgrade over the Ortofon 2M Blue which is one of our favourite cartridges under $400. So the 'Black' will get you the best in performance right from the first album. Additionally, the tonearm features a tight tolerance inverted thrust bearing with four hardened stainless steel points resting in sapphire thrust pads to maximise Cartridge performance. Furthermore, the tonearm provides for easy adjustment of the stylus rake angle (VTA), azimuth and overhang, greatly optimising analogue playback performance and cartridge flexibility. Detachable interconnects included.

A damped, sandwich type platter provides excellent speed stability as it spins on a precision chrome-plated stainless steel and bronze bearing for smooth rotation and ultra-quiet operation. The decoupled,  motor mount and belt drive system physically isolate vibration from the chassis to prevent motor noise from being audible through your sound system. An external power supply helps reduce the chance of hum and noise, and features an ultra-precise, DC-driven AC generator for enhanced speed accuracy. Finally, the 2Xperience MDF chassis rests on damped cone feet for a solid, low-resonance foundation.

Great Sound - No Hassle: One of the great things about vinyl records is that they force you to slow down and become more actively involved in the process of listening. But Pro-Ject's 2Xperience SB-DC won't slow you down much, because of its hassle-free plug 'n' play design. Pro-Ject knows that turntable setup can be a challenge for the novice. That's why this 'table comes out of the box virtually ready to play. Its factory-mounted tonearm and Ortofon 2M Black Moving Magnet Cartridge take the guesswork out of getting started, so you can enjoy optimised sound quality with a minimal amount of effort. A few minutes to adjust key settings like tracking force, anti-skating and platter speed are all that's needed to experience the superior performance that's waiting for you on your favourite records.

A Classic Look: In addition to the above, the 2-Xperience SB-DC also differs  in finish to the regular Pro-Ject players and comes in a superb range of piano-laquered finishes which look stunning. A contoured dustcover completes the package. 

Our Take

We see a lot of customers who have bought secondhand yesteryear marquee turntables thinking that they were the zenith of turntable design, but then finding performance (or repairs) didn't match their high expectations. Your writer bought, sold and enjoyed those products but can truthfully say that modern turntable design has progressed just as much as every other form of engineering in the last 30 to 40 years. This model from Pro-Ject was not even imagined back then and now to be able to buy it for the equivalent of two to three weeks salary for the average worker is just amazing. We'll sum it up this way: The 2Xperience SB DC will be one of those marquee turntables in 30 to 40 years time!
