Pro-Ject unveils Perspective Final Edition turntable

Pro-Ject has introduced its Perspective Final Edition turntable. Limited to just 400 editions and featuring a transparent acrylic plinth, the company says the new model: “pays homage to its illustrious past, bringing back a seminal design, applying the latest build techniques, and upgrading parts to deliver 2024 performance with classic looks”.

The Pro-Ject 6.9 Perspective, launched back in the Nineties, is the blueprint for the new version. The original transparent deck – and its opaque 6.9 sibling – marked Pro-Ject’s move into high-end turntables, building on the Pro-Ject 1 and 2, and taking the maker into a higher price category. The company explains: “Propelled by the bigger budget, the 6.9 Perspective’s design team changed tack from the 1 and 2’s super-solid build – including the rigid plinth, one-piece tonearm and heavy platter – to an isolated methodology. Instead, the 6.9 Perspective featured a tonearm and platter on a sub-chassis spring isolated from the main chassis. This detached technique separates vibration from the deck’s pick-up process, and the Nineties 6.9 Perspective delivered a beautifully open and musical sound.”

The new Perspective seeks to further develop its forebear’s stability, featuring a decoupled sub-chassis and three adjustable springs to prevent vibrations from reaching the needle and negatively impacting overall audio performance. Pro-Ject also rests the Perspective Final Edition on a trio of height-adjustable aluminium spikes designed to reduce the contact area and minimise vibration. In recognition of today’s user demands and advancements in Pro-Ject’s build techniques, this updated model additionally houses an electronic speed switch-controlled two-speed motor.

The Perspective Final Edition package includes a dust cover and Pro-Ject pre-fits a £365 Ortofon 2M Bronze cartridge to the 9in one-piece, carbon fibre tonearm. Buyers of the limited-edition Perspective Final Edition will also receive a personalised certificate of ownership and can contact Pro-Ject directly to request a personalised, serial-numbered plaque for their turntable.
