Pro-Ject RPM 3 Carbon

The latest edition to the RPM range of turntables follows on from where the hugely popular Genie 3 left off. The RPM 3 Carbon boasts a number of improvements from its sibling, the new RPM 1 Carbon.

The new RPM 3 Carbon design has been upgraded to significantly reduce resonance across the turntable. While maintaining the instantly recognisable shape, this turntable boasts improvements in the tonearm, bearing, and motor.

The brand new tonearm is a carbon fibre/aluminium resin construct, made using special heat and pressure treatments. The result of this new design is a tonearm that is more solid and anti-resonant than ever before at this price, while maintaining a light weight. The arm is finished off with a pre-fitted Ortofon 2M Silver cartridge and a new magnetic anti-skate mechanism. The improved counterweight also utilises TPE damping in the form of an anti-resonant ring around the fixing point.

The new vinyl topped sandwich platter creates the perfect surface for your vinyl to play on with no need for a mat.

The completely decoupled motor is based upon the same design as the Xpression Carbon, powered by an AC generator that's connected to the new DC power supply. The inverted main bearing now utilises a ceramic ball, offering a more fluid and consistent platter rotation than ever before.

Available in Red, White or Black high gloss finishes, the RPM 3 Carbon is a turntable package that offers truly phenomenal value for money.

- Precision belt drive using synchronous motor

Up to 90 Day Returns!

Returns are easy and flexible. We will accept returned goods up to 90 days from purchase with the following restrictions as summarised below. For more details please read our Terms & Conditions of Sale, a link is shown at the bottom of the home page.

Changing your Mind
It's OK to change your mind but please be aware that all goods must be returned in as new, unused and re-saleable condition. This means that all packaging must be intact, all accessories are complete in their original wrappers and any free items are also returned with the goods. Essentially the product must be returned in the same condition as you would expect to receive a new unit in. In all cases the cost of returning the goods will be the customer's responsibility. All faulty items must be returned complete and will be repaired under the manufacturer's warranty.


How we Handle Returns
Depending on how long you have had the goods there are different options availble to you. In the case of faulty items, if the item fails due to a manufacturing fault between 1 and 28 days from delivery we will exchange it for a brand new one of the same model. Any items which are found faulty after 28 days from delivery will be repaired under the manufacturers warranty. For returns where you have changed your mind, please find our policy below:


This is were you return your item and we will exchange it for another item of equal or higher value. If the item you wish to change to is of higher value you only pay the difference. If the item is of a lower value we will issue you with a credit note for the difference which you can spend with us at a later date.

Credit Note
This is where you return your item and we issue you with a credit note which you can use against another purchase with us.

This is where you return your item and we issue a refund back to the same method you paid with. e.g. the same credit card. This is not available after 14 days, only exchange or credit note is available after 14 days.

25% Restocking Fee
If your item is returned to us between 29 and 90 days from delivery we will charge a restocking fee of 25% of the price you paid for the item initially. This will be deducted from the value of the exchange or credit note which is issued to you. This is because  technology in the AV marketplace moves fast, and as a result the value of items decrease very quickly.

Please note we do not accept returns after 90 days, except for repairs under warranty.

To complete your order please call us on 0800 634 4484
9am to 6pm Mon-Fri, 9am to 5.30pm Sat.
