EXCELLENT - Extremely capable

Comments of Note:
“The opening drum sequence on Phil Colins ‘I Don’t Care Anymore’ (200g vinyl) sound impressively tight as it rolled across the soundstage. The arm maintains lower midband separation well and this helped definition.”
“Spinning Mark Knopfler’s ‘True Love Will Never Fade’ brought out the best in this combo. The 200gm LPs of ‘Kill To Get Crimson’ have a full-bodied sound in themselves and this counterbalanced the 2M Red’s brightness to give superb vocal clarity and rock stable centre stage positioning of Knopfler’s voice.”
“Strummed guitar strings sounded solid and fast.”
“The RPM1 Carbon is a good budget package. Coming with a full set of accessories, a competent budget cartridge with a forward, modern sound”
“it will easily cope with cartridge upgrades and is tweak-able too, so the best can be had from such upgrades. At a low price, this is a fine way for beginners to spin LP.”
"A good budget turntable package, with a clean, fast sound that is forward and gripping."
