Heavy as a dumbell and smooth as silk, Pro-Ject’s Signature 10 is vinyl bliss

We’ve long appreciated Pro-Ject’s attractive, practical, sweet-sounding turntables. The company has a knack for providing heaps of value in its wares without making them feel like budget pieces, and many of their offerings are surprisingly affordable.

This ain’t one of them.

Feast your eyes upon the Pro-Ject Signature 10, a 50-lb piece of vinyl-spinning awesome. If it sounded only half as good as it looks, we’d still want it. Of course, when it comes to turntables, beauty only gets you so far. Fortunately, the Signature 10 is loaded to the hilt with anti-resonance and anti-vibration measures — literally — to help make sure the sound it produces is in the purest form possible.

Browsing through the Signature 10’s list of features is like taking a crash course in engineering — the terms are hard to decipher, but you walk away with the sense that Project took every opportunity it could to ensure each piece of this turntable remained as silent as possible. The plinth is made of MDF, which is loaded with metal mass; the shining platter is extra heavy, and made with a special TPE damping material to absorb halt resonant vibrations in their tracks; also part of the package are a magnetically decoupled platter, and a single pivot tone arm which, by the way, looks like it came from the T1000 android in Terminator 2.

The Signature 10 is available in three finishes: piano black, olive, and mahogany. The price for this gorgeous piece of craftsmanship? A wallet-busting $6,000 — definitely a luxury item. But then again, if you owned a Signature 10, chances are you’d spend all your money on records and all of your time holed up in your room listening, so you wouldn’t have to worry about such pesky expenses as a car payment, or gas.
