Project 6 PerspeX
The latest £1000 turntable from Pro-ject is the 6 PerspeX, complete with a floating magnetic suspension and the brand new 9cc Evolution tonearm

Mention turntables to many people and they'll think of dusty old records, crackling needles and boring black slabs of hi-fi. Pro-ject has always bucked this trend, making stylish, forward-thinking vinyl-spinners complete with the latest technology for excellent high fidelity sound.

The brand new 6 PerspeX deck looks no different at first glance. There's the stylish, transparent, acrylic plinth, the substantial, non-resonant platter and a the carbon fibre, single piece tonearm.

Perhaps the most eye-catching technology is the magnetic suspension, which allows the turntable and arm to be mounted on a sub-chassis that floats above the plinth thanks to three pairs of aligned magnets.

The new Pro-ject 9cc Evolution tonearm is here too, fashioned from a single piece of carbon fibre in an effort to ensure the highest possible build quality and overall rigidity.

More after the break

All this technology, and plenty more beside, is yours for £1000. For more information on the Pro-ject 6 PerspeX turntable, check out the website of Henley Designs, the company's distributor, here.
