Overview

Details

The latest version of our classic turntable reaches new performance levels 

The 2Xperience SB DC is based on the 2Xperience belt-drive concept which incorporates over 20 years of turntable design experience. The addition of a precision DC motor control, electronic speed changing and the high end 9cc Evolution carbon fibre tonearm results in vastly improved playback quality unheard of at this price point.

The heavy chassis is made from MDF using a non-resonant construction technique. The turntable platter is built with heavy, non-resonant materials in a precisely balanced sandwich configuration. A layer of reused vinyl records acts as the perfect turntable mat. A threaded and light-weight record clamp eliminates unwanted record vibration and rumbling of the main platter bearing. 

The audio performance of the final product benefits from the multi-layered resonance-free platter - avoiding the ringing effect inherrent with metal and glass platters. The 2Xperience SB DC is not only equipped with a class leading tonearm, but comes pre-fitted with the Ortofon 2M Silver magnetic cartridge. This exclusive to Pro-Ject audio cartridge makes use of silver voice coils for a truly revealing and engaging audio experience. A protective acrylic dust cover is also included.

Product Faqs

  • Vinyl vs Digital

    One of the most commonly asked question is what is better? Vinyl or Digital music.

    Short answer is both have their pros and cons.

    I will go through the differences are we see them and try to list the pros and cons as comprehensively as we can.


    VINYL

    PROS

    - Delivers analog sound.  This is what is refered to as a 'warm' sound.   Analog sound is what we hear with our ears.  The vibration of the styli (needle) in the groove of the record creates sine waves that is then reproduced by the amplifier and speakers.  There is no digital conversion that is an estimate of the music.
    - Can last a lifetime.
    - Cartidges and styli can usually be upgraded.
    - Delivers a wider frequency range including ultrasonic frequencies (above 20 kHz) that have been shown to help the body release endorphines that brings on that 'feel-good' feeling.
    - Potentially more accurate sound.
    - Can come with booklets with band photos and lyrics.

    CONS

    - Can be easily damaged.
    - Large music collections can take up alot of space.
    - Not 'toddler friendly' (though they DO make good frisbees)
    - Needs more maintenance.
    - Not a portable media.


    DIGITAL MUSIC

    PROS

    - Large collections in very small space.
    - Can be used in multiple devices. (computers, phones, MP3 players, CDs, USB sticks, etc)
    - Much less suseptible to physical damage than vinyl.
    - Can be organised much more efficiently. (search entire music libraries with a simple click)
    - Digital devices can be improved by external Digital to Analog Convertors. (DACs)
    - Can be digitally remastered after recording.  (Usually done is a studio)
    - Easy to make copies of files.

    CONS

    - Can lose entire collections if hard discs fail.
    - Doesn't have the 'warmth' that vinyl has.
    - Is not an exact copy of the music.  Digital music is an estimate that is accomplished with 'sample rates' (the higher the sample rate the closer to the original)
    - A lot of digital music is compressed. (lower sound quality)
    - Potential compatability issues with different file types on different hardware.
