T2 W: A New Modern Marvel
The T2 W intelligently enhances our highly acclaimed T1
formula while introducing our innovative Wi-Fi streaming technology. This groundbreaking feature enables
seamless streaming to a wide range of modern network-enabled audio devices, including HiFi streamers,
network-enabled home theater A/V receivers, and contemporary streaming loudspeakers. Such versatility empowers you to effortlessly integrate the T2 W into any
living space, taking modern lifestyle concepts to an entirely new level.
Brand new Network Streaming
We have added the latest Wi-Fi technology into the
package, including all the latest WLAN standards and
2x2 MIMO allowing for theoretical speeds which are
faster than modern, typical internet connections. And
with MIMO we get maximum signal stability and protection against package and data loss. All this is necessary,
because with the T2 W you can either stream in our standard compressed format – enabling maximum compatibility – or in 24bit/48kHz lossless, for selected high-end
streamers like our Stream Box S2 Ultra. All this is multiroom capable as well, meaning you could send hundreds of audio streams to as many receiving devices as
you like, before the T2 W multi-core CPU or Wi-Fi bandwidth start to crackle down. The new „Pro-Ject Control“ App offers a fast and intuitive user experience,
while the Wi-Fi setup can be effortlessly accomplished
through modern BLE functionality, simplifying the setup
Highest Quality Materials
The elegantly crafted CNC-machined plinth has been
expanded in size to enhance stability and is available in
striking finishes such as High Gloss Black, Satin White,
or Walnut. It boasts a construction free of plastic components and meticulous manufacturing that eliminates
any hollow spaces within, effectively preventing unwanted vibrations within the chassis. Furthermore, the glass
platter in the T2 W has been made heavier and thicker
compared to its predecessor, ensuring a zero-resonance design that effectively eliminates the shortcomings
associated with plastic or lightweight steel alternatives.
Complementing these improvements, purpose-selected
turntable feet effectively isolate the T2 W from ambient
vibrations present in the vicinity of your hi-fi system.
Speed Control, Motor and Drive
The motor and drive system in the T2 W remain identical
to those found in the T1. The motor drives a belt system,
connected to our newly designed sub-platter exclusive
to the T-line. This sub-platter is mounted on an ultra-precise 0.001mm main bearing with a hardened steel axle
and brass bushing. Where most alternative products
may use un-regulated DC motors with wide speed fluctuations, the T2 W features our proven system of an
electronically regulated, precision-speed AC motor.
The T2 W also comes with electronic speed switching
between 33 and 45 RPM. The result is a low-noise, stable
drive system for the turntable.
New Tonearm & Anti-Skating
The tonearm on the T2 W has been improved with a
longer arm tube. With its 9” effective length and stiff
aluminium construction, this one-piece tonearm also
features new updated low-friction bearings to accommodate the increased length and diameter for absolute
accuracy in use. Besides the clean and stylish looks, the
integrated headshell won‘t cause any additional vibrations either, and is a big improvement over other detachable, screwed-on or glued-on headshells! The T2
W also comes brand new with an adjustable spring-based anti-skating mechanism that optimizes performance and extracts the utmost potential from your cartridge.
Completely New Built-in Phono Stage
The T2 W has a high-quality dual stage split-passive MM
phono preamp – this is the first time a Pro-Ject turntable has used an integrated phono-preamp of this level.
We considered this a necessity in order to maximize the
Wi-Fi performance. We wanted a truly stunning phono
stage to match and give the T2 W unrivalled longevity
and audio performance. Supplied with a high-value Sumiko Rainier MM cartridge (MSRP 175€), this is a true
hi-fi playback system with no corners cut.
Semi-balanced phono cable
Like the T1, the T2 W is then finished with super shielded, semi-symmetrical, low-capacitance phono cables, purpose-designed by Pro-Ject – not off-the shelf
RCA cables. There is also a dust cover for extra protection and a felt mat to protect your records.
