In celebration of this spectacular event, Pro-Ject partnered again with The Beatles and Universal Music Group to release a 'White Album' themed record player. For this special occasion, the company has made a limited edition turntable that fits the artwork like nothing else. A turntable where even the cartridge and tonearm are held in distinctive white, to pay respect to one of the most reputable albums of all time. Based on the 2Xperience SB we produced the 2Xperience The Beatles White Album. It features class-leading components and sound.
An audiophile grade 9" EVO tonearm and a highly dense and rigid MDF chassis, together with the acrylic platter give the turntable the needed weight for a secure stand and perfect decoupling and elimination of unwanted vibrations. A special collaboration 2M White moving magnet cartridge by phono pioneer Ortofon guarantees a high-class sound experience. The supplied white record clamp securely fixes the LP on the platter and ensures a smoother running Vinyl. The decoupled DC motor makes sure the platter is rotating at the optimum speed with incredible stability. A diamond cut pulley offers excellent power transmission and the belt-drive principle not only gives stunning looks but also great sound. For everyone who enjoys a big record collection, an electronic speed change has been built-in with switching speeds with the push of a button. 2Xperience The Beatles White Album is available as a limited edition of 500 pieces for €1499.
