Uncompromisingly complete - the plug & play entry into True Balanced!

The X2 brought the high standards demanded of a high-end turntable into attainable price dimensions. The joy of fine details, build quality and highest quality materials has remained the same with the X2 B. The satin acrylic platter, three exclusive lacquer finishes and the satin waxed walnut veneer emphasize the elegant appearance.

The X2 B allows with the mounted and adjusted MC cartridge Ortofon MC Quintet Red a decisive sound improvement: it represents in the portfolio of Pro-Ject the entry into the True Balanced connection variant. In conjunction with a balanced cable that keeps the four signal-carrying wires and the shielding consistently separate, as well as a suitable phono preamplifier, every record lover thus benefits from fully balanced signal routing, higher signal-to-noise ratio and crystal-clear vinyl sound.

The electronic speed selection spoils with comfort, if between 33 and 45 rpm is to be changed.

More mass in the chassis, platter and tonearm

The heavy, dense and rigid MDF chassis reduces unwanted resonances to almost immeasurable levels. Inside is a sophisticated DC/AC motor control that, combined with the electronic speed switching, provides clean and stable power to the motor system.
The conical tonearm tube of the X2 B's slightly longer tonearm has a larger diameter and is made of a carbon fiber/aluminum composite with optimal damping values. Thus, it exhibits high stiffness and an impressive low resonance. The high-quality tonearm bearings compensate for the arm's higher mass and allow the arm tube to move with almost no mechanical escapement. The cabling is consistently balanced with complete separation of signal-carrying conductors and shielding.

An Ortofon MC Quintet Red MC pickup system is mounted and adjusted ready to play. This means that a true balanced connection is already possible ex works, for example with the Pro-Ject Connect it Phono E Mini-XLR cable and the Pro-Ject Phono Box S3 B preamplifier.
