The ProJect Recordmaster is a turntable that will satisfy many music listeners particularly in the area of value for money.It provides so many features that have never been seen as a package before at its price point.
The Recordmaster is a testament to the evolution of ProJects designs. It is packed with a combination of features and build quality that sets it apart from the competition at its price point. Let’s start with the increased platter size which decreases vibration and reduces stress on the main bearing. Then there is the decoupled low noise AC motor that means that the motor is isolated from the plinth and this also leads to a substantial reduction in vibration. A substantial sonic improvement comes with the inclusion of the highly acclaimed Ortofon 2M Red cartridge/stylus combination. The 2M stylus features an eliptical stylus with is a much finer cut of diamond that not only extracts more information from the record grooves but decreases record wear due to its larger footprint in the groove thus spreading the stylus pressure. 2M Red is an excellent choice. You’ll hear quieter backgrounds, a cleaner midrange, and more detail, treble, and bass. Then there is also the ProJect Acryl-It platter, delivering a more fluid sound that leaves no space for platter resonances. The Acryl-It platter truly dampens resonance and leaves you with just the music – a very special space.
In terms of tonal balance, the Pro-Ject Debut Recordmaster and Ortofon 2M Red combination sounds neutral with crystalline highs and velvety mid-range.It’s a clean, insightful sound that digs deep to reveal all manner of texture and nuance in the music. All the while, the deck keeps a firm grip on the musical structure, with a good level of rhythmic precision.It’s expressive, clearly displaying a good deal of subtlety and fairly wide dynamics. Every little attention to detail for damping has paid off as the Pro-Ject doesn’t pick up any noise from the motor. The turntable is extremely quiet, which lets you hear more of the record itself instead of the hum of a motor or the subtle vibration of an a poorly damped turntable.
