Pro-Ject's RPM 5 is a distinctive design, but on top of it's admired aesthetics it uses premium-grade components to reproduce a high-quality audio performance. Coming pre-mounted with an Ortofon alpha cartridge on it's one-piece carbon fibre tonearm, this deck offers good upgrade options for the future, but will instantly give you something to enjoy.

The aim to better the classic Pro-Ject-1 design with this deck is achieved with two different approaches... First, according to the principle of "less is more", we exchanged the rectangular chassis in favour of a radical "drop-form" design. Second, the old resonating main platter was exchanged for an MDF version, which is free of resonance. A metal ring is mounted around the main bearing for optimised conductance of unwanted vibrations as well. The audible benefits of these steps are amazing. The sound is calmer and richer, without losing detail.

The RPM 5 is now also supplied with a free Pro-Ject Cover-IT RPM1/5 lid.

Key Features:


   Quiet running AC motor with a two-step pulley drives the hub and platter via a flat-ground belt

   Nominal speeds 33 / 45 / 78 r.p.m. (78 optional)

   Medium density fibre plinth stands on three height-adjustable rubber-damped aluminium cones

   Motor is decoupled from the plinth to reduce vibration transmission

   The resonance-optimised platter is a sandwich construction, comprising the hub, a medium density fibre platter, a cork mat (a standard felt mat is also supplied) and a screw-down record clamp

   Tonearm bearing comprises inverted hardened stainless-steel points and sapphire thrust-pads

    Conical carbon fibre armtube allows adjustment of needle azimuth despite fixed headshell

    Vertical tracing angle adjustable

    Low-tolerance chrome-plated stainless-steel axle runs on a Teflon bearing plate in a sintered bronze bearing housing

    Motor decoupled to reduce vibration

    Central metal block optimises centre of gravity and damps main bearing

   Gold-plated RCA phono sockets

   Plinth finished in 'anthracite' piano-lacquer finish

   Supplied with free Pro-ject CoverIt (R.R.P £50.00)


   Pro-Ject 9cc carbon fibre tonearm installed

   Pre-fitted with Ortofon Alpha cartridge

   The headshell and armtube are fashioned from a single piece of carbon-fibre.

    Conical armtube avoids standing wave reflections.

    Inverted tonearm bearing comprises four hardened stainless tips in ABEC7 spec ballraces.

   Rings provide very solid arm bearing housings. The outside ring is open to avoid resonances.

    Design of counterweight effectively counteracts unwanted resonances.

    Counterweight shaft lowered to record level reduces cantilever forces and dynamic wow when playing warped records.

    Solid arm base permits accurate height adjustment of armtube and VTA (vertical tracing angle).

    Single-screw fixing of arm tube allows rotation for easy adjustment of needle azimuth despite fixed headshell.

    Silicone-damped arm-lift can be adjusted to suit working height of the arm.

    The internal wiring consists of flexible high-purity copper from the headshell right through to the gold-plated phono sockets.
