Project The Classic EVO
Sub-chassis turntable with 9“ carbon/alu sandwich tonearm
The Classic meets the 175 VPO to melt design-ideas
The new Classic Evo is based on the successful EISA Award winner Pro-Ject The Classic. The main improvement is the sub-platter, where we used the experience we gained from designing the 175 – Vienna Philharmonic Recordplayer to add key changes to the Classic Evo. The main bearing construction we use is a similar system as the one on the Vienna Philharmonic Recordplayer. For improved comfort, an electronic speed change was built in, which lets you switch from 33 to 45 rpm (and vice versa) with the push of a button.
The tonearm tube is made out of a sandwich of carbon and aluminium: carbon for stiffness and speed, alu for better damping.
Standard with the Ortofon 2M Silver moving magnet cartridge. However, as the tonearm offers excellent damping and flexibility as well, its effective mass can be called middle heavy, so it is also a very good partner for MC cartridges.
