Pro-Ject X8 Evolution Turntable

ARRIVING MID OCTOBER 2022.  AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDERS.

Mass-Loaded High-End Turntable with True Balanced Connection

The X8 is our most affordable mass-loaded turntable yet. Positioned neatly between the X2 and Xtension 9, the X8 adopts and breaks down its bigger siblings' features to make mass-loaded high-end design principles as accessible as never before.

Massive 5.1kg Platter

The X8 offers a heavy, TPE damped mass-loaded platter precision lathed from a single aluminium block and finely balanced. On the Xtension 9 and 10 you cannot really play around with using different mats due to the glued on vinyl top. The X8 comes with a standard felt mat, also allowing you to experiment with different material mats in the future and tailor the sound to your taste.

Ceramic Tipped, Magnetically Supported Inverted Bearing

A neodymium magnet decreases the load on the ceramic tipped bearing. Considering the massively heavy platter, this leads to a smoothly rotating base for your vinyl records and perfect speed stability.

The X8 inherited the massive MDF chassis and the top-of-the-line Pro-Ject 9cc EVO carbon tonearm from its larger siblings. The height-adjustable X8 features machined aluminium feet. The TPE damping technology in the feet effectively decouples the X8 from the surface it is placed on. The feet are a great choice for a more budget orientated turntable as they are faster and easier to set up than magnetic feet on the X9/10, and also require less maintenance.

True Balanced Connection

The X8 is the first Pro-Ject turntable that utilises their new True Balanced Connection. Using one of the new True Balanced phono cables wired to a Phono Box S3 B, Phono Box DS3 B, Phono Box RS or Phono Box RS2 you'll be able to hear every ounce of detail that your moving coil cartridge produces. Utilising a fully balanced signal from a moving coil cartridge ensures that none of the information from the record grooves is lost, and that the noise floor and any audible interference is reduced to an absolute minimum.

Precision Control

The chassis houses a sophisticated DC/AC generator board which, combined with the convenient speed control board, delivers clean and stable power to the quiet-running motor. Switching speeds is controlled with the simple touch of a button.

Unleash the full potential! Upgrade your phono cable to a Connect it Phono CC 5P/XLR for a True Balanced Connection to our Phono Box RS2 or our new Phono Box DS3 B.
