The X2 is carefully tuned to offer stunning audio-focused features for the best possible price. The X2 boasts the wonderful heritage of Pro-Ject Audio, focusing on attention to detail & craftsmanship at an affordable price offering - all while being proudly hand-assembled by Pro-Ject's European factory.

Every effort has been made throughout manufacturing to ensure no corners are cut - on build quality and most importantly, sonic ability. The end result is a highly engaging, musical turntable that delivers deep, detailed lows, crisp high frequencies and an engaging, well-presented midrange.

The motor of the X2 has superb vibration expulsion, as the motor suspends on a free-floating TPE belt with no points of contact to the chassis body, eliminating unwanted vibrations from the motor through to the turntable.

The longer and thicker design of the X2's 9" carbon/aluminium sandwich construction tonearm is perfect for the vinyl enthusiast looking to elevate in clarity and cartridge. It is suited to heavier cartridges with refined stylus profiles that require very precise alignment. Further VTA and Azimuth adjustments are also on-board.

The X2 has an additional 3kg mass in both platter and MDF plinth compared to the X1, thereby reducing unwanted resonances so as to be virtually undetectable. The 30mm thick, 2kg platter of the X2 makes for a highly stable and consistent playing ground for the 9" tonearm, allowing it to transpose the information in the grooves with even less interference.

Home Theatre Review
Andrew Robinson

Sitting on my credenza, the X2 is an absolute stunner, and a turntable I loved seeing & hearing in my system day in and day out.

At this price, you really can't help but ask, "do you need more?" For that matter, what would "more" even look or sound like, especially if neutrality is the aim of any component?

 
 
 

Hi-fi News
David Price

There's a lot that's right about the sound of the Pro-Ject X2 – especially if you're comparing it to its more affordable sibling. But it's also a strong performer relative to what else is on the market at the price.

It sounds open and detailed, has a wide soundstage and is on the neutral side.
