Pro-Ject Xtension 9 Evolution SuperPack

With the expansive Xtension 12 for long tonearms Pro-Ject 2009 launched its elaborately processed Xtension series. Now the manufacturer presents in the form of the

Xtension 9 Evolution is a much more setup-friendly version, which has pre-assembled the shorter 9CC Evolution Arm, made from one piece of carbon fiber. At the very affordable SuperPack, the Quintet Black is adjusted at the top - top model from Ortofons new line of MC pickups. One of the standard class sound clearly superior connection cable is also included.

The result is a turntable with a brightly colored, stable sound, which does not lose its richness of detail and structure, even if it is musically high.

In addition, the playback is so fresh and punchy with appropriate program that this analog package offers an incredible amount of quality and sound for the money.

Superlative vinyl performance from compact drive / Tonarm-Komination the luxury class!

Xtension 9 Evolution incorporates our more than 20 years of experience in compact disk design, matching standard audio racks.

The chassis of the Xtension 9 consists of metal pellets filled MDF to minimize natural resonances and increase the mass. Magnetic feet effectively decouple the 16kg heavy turntable from its footprint, resulting in a perfect symbiosis of the ground drive and subchassis principles.

The special turntable of the Xtension 9 Evolution is not made of resonance-susceptible metal, but a self-construction of a special perfectly balanced cast metal alloy, which is TPE-damped and which uses recycled vinyl as a mat.

The result is a heavy, completely non-resonant turntable that glides on a magnet-supported, inverted ceramic bearing.

The Xtension 9 Evolution comes complete with the high-end 9cc Evolution tonearm, and a cover is also included.

Reviewed by Tony Bolton

"The Quintet Black is something of an audiophile bargain."

"It is a very good cartridge that wants to be a welcome addition to any hi-fi system."

"Very well mannered, but springy sounding cartridge ... Very smooth midband and treble. Excellent surface noise control. Fast and fluid bass sound."

The Quintet Black is the best example of Quintet's overall excellence:

The Quintet Black is graced with a Nude Shibata diamond, considered to be one of the best-performing Boron cantilever. The Shibata's slim, highly polished profile allows an extremely wide contact area to the walls of the groove and ensures a detailed reproduction of the spectrum, including even the most high frequency groove information.

The Quintet Black wants to be unfettered by musical genre and wants to give the closest approach to the Quintet series to Ortofon's true accuracy in sound.
