ProJect 6 Perspex SB Turntable
The 6 Perspex SB takes the same proven design as previous 6 Perspex designs but utilises a far superior motor to give vinyl enthusiasts an even more appealing high-end vinyl spinner.
- Established high-end turntable design
- Clever use of magnetic decoupling
- Pre-installed 9CC Evolution tonearm
- Solid acrylic plinth
- Electronic speed control with 33/45 rpm switching
- Connect-IT Phono E cable supplied
The perimeter drive-belt mechanism was inspired by the introduction of the RPM 10 Carbon turntable, which uses a fully-decoupled motor. With the 6 Perspex SB, the motor sits within its own cut-out inside the main plinth, lined with damping material for reduced resonance. The motor itself is an AC design, which is regulated by its own built-in speed controller. This speed controller not only offers easy switching between 33 and 45rpm, but it also generates an entirely fresh new sine wave for the motor – filtering out the fluctuations and distortions associated with a typical mains supply, for reduced resonance.
The 6 Perspex SB stands out as a beautifully engineered machine thanks to the pristine acrylic plinth, which is accented by the striking sub-chassis, platter and TPE-damped aluminium coned feet, as well as the new motor.
The turntable’s sub-chassis is made of Corian®, a solid-surface material renowned for its isolation properties. This sub-chassis is then isolated from the main plinth by magnetic power, effectively creating a “floating” platform free from unwanted vibrations. The precision-balanced vinyl sandwich platter rides on the sub-chassis utilising an inverted main bearing, which combines a stainless-steel axle with a ceramic ball. The platter’s 4mm thick vinyl top-layer is the perfect interface for a playing record and eliminates the need for any form of turntable mat, which can have a detrimental effect on the sound performance of high-end turntables. The platter is finished with a threaded spindle, to accommodate the supplied screw-able record clamp.
The 6 Perspex SB is finished with Pro-Ject’s coveted 9CC Evolution tonearm for a truly high-end experience. The 9” tonearm boasts a one-piece conical carbon fibre tube, TPE-damped counterweights and an inverted bearing design that allows for perfect tracking and minimal resonance, even with demanding pick-up cartridges.
The 6 Perspex SB is the complete audiophile turntable but at a very appealing price. A top-grade phono cable is supplied in the way of the Connect-IT E (123cm) and a protective dust cover tops off this incredible package.
Who is Project?
Project started in the hifi business designing and manufacturing affordable stereo turntables in the early 1990s, beginning with the entry-level Debut model. It was a great success, like all other turntables on the market at that time were at least £100 more expensive, without offering a performance benefit. Project has gone on to extend the range of turntables they offer at all popular price points and performance levels, through midrange to high-end models.
