Pro-Ject RPM 1.3 Genie Belt-drive audio turntable rare enough these days

New stylus required

Namely, the name of the tested model is RPM 1.3 Genie, while the company catalog available on the Internet only has an RPM 1 Genie model. What is different is difficult to say. Looking at the image of model 1 and comparing it with the 1.3 model, significant differences, especially those of conceptions, could not be perceived. And even when comparing the technical data of model 1 from the catalog and those in the user manual of the 1.3 model we have not even come across what distinguishes them. However, from the tests of this model in the audio news world it can be concluded that, despite the marks, these two doles are very similar. The differences concern some improvements on the tonearm and the engine (invisible from the data) and the voltage changes from 12 V to 16 V. The biggest and only noticeable difference is the tonearm. Model 1.3 tonearm has silver-plated wires, and it is possible to set VTA and also azimuth (lateral tilt). The tonearm has a pair of gold-plated phono connectors and allows the use of better interconnection cables instead of the supplied phono cable. All in all, therefore, as far as the difference is concerned, those who wish to own this gramophone should not “watch” the mark on it.

Mostly Of Wood
Pro-Ject RPM (the mark comes from one of the key features of the turntable – revolutions per minute) 1.3 Genie’s turntable look and layout works(pretty much) more expensive than its real price. The consequence is how much his design is of such high quality. The concept of a turntable is very simple, which ultimately makes it relatively inexpensive. If we do not count the tonearm and the cartridge, the turntable(base) has only three parts – an MDF stand in the form of a boomerang, a relatively thick but not particularly massive platter, and a motor. The base in the center has an axle, on the right side a large opening into which the motor unit is inserted, on the left side is the factory mounted tonearm and on the underside are three rather high plastic pitches that are not adjustable in height. This means that the leveling of the turntable will be very tricky. The bearing is pressed into the center of the platter, which means that this is a “reverse” bearing- the axle does not enter the bearing, but the bearing nests on the axle. The bearing has a bronze liner(therefore no lubricating oil is required) and at the top of the metal ball into which the stainless steel axle is leaned, surface-reinforced with a chrome coating.
