High-end belt-driven turntable with 9" EVO carbon fiber tonearm, mass-loaded plinth, and magnetic feet
Xtension 9 Evolution is a high-class audiophile turntable that offers superlative vinyl performance from a compact luxurious turntable/tone arm configuration!
Xtension 9 Evolution chassis is made from high-class ultra dense MDF, that gives high mass and is non-resonant. Unique magnetic feet decouple the main plinth from its base.These feet effectively isolates the weighty 16kg total turntable mass from outer vibration and adds up to a combination of 'mass loaded' principle and 'floating turntable' design.
Instead of a pure metal main platter, we found a perfect aluminium alloy which is damped with thermo plastic elastomers (TPE). Additionally we glued recycled Vinyl records to the top (which act as a perfect mat) and bake this 'sandwich' before precision balancing it.
The final product subsequently benefits from a wonderfulresonance-free, heavy platter, that runs ultra-silent on an inverted ceramic bearing (ball & plate) with magnetic suspension. This virtually reduces the platter-mass, so the platter `floats´ on the bearing with lowest rumble possible.
Xtension 9 Evolution features a quartz-generated high precision electronic speed regulation (Speed Box) with microprocessor control. An absolutely clean AC power is generated, which is led directly into built-in synchronous motor. Decoupling from mains interference, quartz regulation and dedicated filter circuit gives a far better speed stability for smooth and undisturbed motor operation.
