Pro-Ject 2 Xperience Acryl Ex Display
The 2 Xperience Acryl from Pro-Ject Audio Systems follows on from the previous 2 Xperience model (also known as the Xperience 2-Pack). However, it also boasts some technical tweaks that bring it into line with Pro-Ject’s latest standards, guaranteeing an improved high-end performance compared to its predecessor.
The perimeter belt-drive concept is based on over twenty years of turntable design experience, but the motor is a newly updated design inspired by the 2 Xperience SB, which was released in 2015. The new motor is therefore driven by a purpose-engineered AC generator PCB, which in turn is powered by an efficient DC power supply for optimal rotational and speed stability.
The 2 Xperience Acryl’s transparent acrylic plinth is acoustically inert, offering an aesthetically appealing, yet audiophile-focused, solution. The thick black precision-balanced platter is also resonant-free, and topped with melted vinyl records for the ideal turntable mat. The three aluminium coned feet are TPE-damped for a further reduction of unwanted resonances.
The 2 Xperience Acryl is fitted as standard with the high-end 9CC Evolution carbon fibre tonearm. The coveted tonearm design is a proven performer, often found on some of the most popular record players in Pro-Ject’s recent history. The tonearm is then finished with the Ortofon 2M Silver moving-magnet cartridge, which boasts silver voice coils for improved signal transmission.
The overall effect of the 2 Xperience Acryl’s design is a stylish hi-fi turntable that avoids all unwanted resonances, so you’re only left with the music. The package is also neatly finished with a screw-on record clamp and a sturdy dust cover.
Once again thanks for your help. I first visited Bartletts in 1993 and bought the Audiolab 8000a to equalise and compete with whatever the neighbours were playing at the time through the very thin walls of a Victorian Mansion Block. My Quad at the time although could musically could not compete. I had bought the Quad in 1984 at a place in Camden by Mornington Crescent, although I felt that I bought what" that particular shop "wanted to sell me rather than what I wanted.
I would just like to thank the Bartlett's team for pulling out all the stops when an order failed to materialise through no fault of their own. Terrific service and would certainly shop with Bartlett's again.
If I could give Bartlett's 10 stars I would....Quite superb service (a special mention for Simon here) - Buy from this supplier with complete confidence.
