... And Vinyl For All
The Metallica Team reached out to us and chose Pro-Ject as their partner for a Metallica-themed record player. Pro-Ject Audio Systems is proud to announce the Metallica turntable. The Metallica turntable continues our tradition of collaborations with artists.
Master of Vinyl
We treated the surface of this deck with a mirror-fi-nished 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 our Pick it S2 C cartridge. Tracking force and anti-skating are both adjustable and make your Metallica Limited Edition Turntable a true audiophile investment.When you rock vinyl on this deck – nothing else matters.
Heavy Glass Platter
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 incredible build quality - avoiding the flaws of plastic or lightweight construction.
Aluminium Sub Platter, Pulley and feet
The aluminium sub platter is usually one of our most sought after upgrade parts, but comes standard on the Metallica Limited Edition Turntable! The di-amond cut sub-platter and pulley can be machined to much improved and higher tolerances. The alu-minum sub-platter adds more mass to the enti-re platter and drive system, resulting in additional damping of noise and unwanted resonances. The improved tolerances during production will increa-se overall speed accuracy. The additional mass and super accurate pulley and sub platter diameters im-prove short term speed stability, or also called Wow & Flutter.The Metallica turntable uses height adjustable hea-vy-duty metal feet to ensure a level positioning on every surface, because a perfectly level turntable is essential for the Damage, Inc.
Hardwired... to Stable Speeds
In typical Pro-Ject tradition, the speed is electro-nically precision controlled and guarantees the most accurate and stable speeds. Change between speeds easily with the toggle switch. With the sup-plied round belt for 78 rpm, you can also listen to your shellac records.
The 8.6“ S-shape aluminium tonearm comes with a detachable SME headshell. The SME headshell al-lows you to swap out catridges fast and easily. The tonearm bearing and base are machined entirely out of aluminium. You won‘t find any plastic compo-nents in these critical parts. The Metallica Limited Edition turntable will track your vinyl records with speed, accuracy and consistency. This is The End of the Line for audiophile turntable design.
