The RPM 5 Carbon is a handsome belt-drive turntable equipped with a 9-inch carbon fiber tonearm, acrylic platter and a completely isolated outboard motor.
It has been set up, from the factory, with a Sumiko Amethyst moving magnet cartridge. The review sample I received is all black in color and it looks amazing in the flesh. My teenage son started drooling over it the moment we unboxed the thing! With its sharp looks and $1499.00 MSRP, it is set to do battle in a hotly contested segment of the turntable market.
I will be testing this turntable in my studio 2-channel system and if my son behaves himself, he may get to try it in his bedroom system too. Look for a detailed review to appear on the website in the near future.
