In collaboration with one of heavy rock's greatest acts, Pro-Ject is thrilled to announce the Metallica turntable! Pro-Ject has a great history of working with artists to create lasting tributes in the shape of brilliantly coloured, thoughtfully designed turntables, and the Metallica turntable might just be their crowning glory.
The surface of the Metallica turntable was treated with a mirror-finished metal logo contour that gives the player its distinctive look. The S-shaped tonearm is fitted with a detachable SME headshell to allow quick cartridge changes. Out of the box, the turntable comes pre-adjusted with Pro-Ject's Pick it S2 C cartridge. Tracking force and anti-skating are both adjustable and make your Metallica Limited Edition Turntable a true investment piece.
The glass platter is a heavy, zero-resonance design. The high mass of the platter produces the tightest and most accurate playback speeds and at the same time allows you to see the stunning turntable and all of its high-quality parts and superb build quality - avoiding the flaws of plastic or lightweight construction.
Aluminium Sub-Platter, Pulley and Feet
The aluminium sub-platter is one of Pro-Ject's most sought after upgrade parts, but comes standard on the Metallica turntable! The aluminum sub-platter adds more mass to the entire platter and drive system, resulting in additional damping of noise and unwanted resonances. The improved tolerances during production also increase overall speed accuracy. The Metallica turntable uses height adjustable heavy-duty metal feet to ensure a level positioning on every surface.
The 8.6" S-shape aluminium tonearm comes with a detachable SME headshell. The SME headshell allows you to swap out cartridges quickly and easily. The tonearm bearing and base are machined entirely out of aluminium, and as always you won‘t find any plastic components in these critical parts. The Metallica Limited Edition turntable will track your vinyl records with speed, accuracy and consistency.
