Description

Superlative vinyl performance from a compact, luxurious turntable.

We consider our Xtension 9 Evolution quite an achievement. We’ve managed to incorporate all our turntable design experience from more than 20 years in to a high end, slim-line size to fit standard audio racks. The Xtension 9 chassis is made from MDF filled with metal granulate for high mass that virtually nulls resonance. Magnetic feet, which decouple the main plinth from its base, are combined with a weighty 16kg total turntable mass. The result is a unique combination of ‘mass loaded’ and ‘floating turntable’ design principles.

Instead of pure metal for the main platter, we’ve found a perfect alloy which we’ve damped with thermo plastic elastomers (TPE). Additionally we’ve glued recycled Vinyl records to the top (which act as a perfect mat) and baked this ‘sandwich’ before precision balancing it. The final product subsequently benefits from a wonderfully resonance-free, heavy platter, that runs ultra-silently on an inverted ceramic ball bearing with magnetic suspension. Our Xtension 9 Evolution includes a top-class 9cc Evolution tonearm and comes complete with a dust cover.
