Uncompromised heavyweight design combined with high-end features. The big brother of our X1 sets new standards.

  • Resonance-optimized Sumiko Rainier Cartridge hand-crafted in Japan
  • Azimuth and VTA adjustment
  • Resonance free, 2 kg heavy acryl platter

Azimuth & VTA

The X2 comes with fully adjustable Azimuth & VTA. It offers you the possibility to modify your X2 as you want it.

2 kg Platter

The perfect platform to place your precious vinyl records, guaranteeing absolute reliability in its performance and sonic character.

33/45/78 RPM

A sophisticated DC/AC generator board generates clean and stable power to drive the motor. Easily change speed with the push of only a single button.

New Motor Suspension

A good motor by itself, is already very quiet. To get the best performance out of it, we have improved the motor suspension. The X2‘s motor chassis is carefully balanced and suspended on a precision tuned TPE belt - this way the motor chassis is effectively decoupled from the main plinth for optimal performance.

9'' Carbon-Aluminium Tonearm

Compared with its little brother the X1, the tonearm is longer - 9“ in length - and the tube has a wider diameter. The carbon/aluminium sandwhich construction results in better internal damping. The increased mass makes the tonearm an excellent fit for low compliance MC cartridges.

Metal Feet

The three height adjustable damped aluminium feet guarantee the perfect stand & massively reduce risk of acoustical feedback.

The Tonearm

Finished as a one-piece, with no resonance-inducing headshell, the X2 can also be set for azimuth and VTA adjustment. The tonearm is then supplied with a TPE-damped counterweight.

Phono Cable

To guarantee a perfect connection to your amp you will find a high-quality phono RCA cable in the box. Our Connect it E is a semi-balanced, low-capacitance cable, with superior shielding.

Great value
My first turntable in many years. I spent a few hours on set-up(adjusting plinth level, tonearm force, etc. Pro-Ject does not supply the correct size Allen key to adjust the cartridge alignment( 2 keys are included, one was too small, the other too large), however mine was very close to ideal alignment out of the box. Pro-Ject includes the excellent Sumiko Moonstone MM cartridge,not the Pickit 2M Silver.
