Product Description

Pro-Ject X1 Turntable is the newest incarnation of Pro-Ject’s original record player which is still part of the range after over 25 years. X1 is a leading turntable that positions preimum analogue technologies at a more accesible price-point.

Design

X1 has an over-sized, heavyweight MDF construction. A complex DC/AC board is housed within the plinth which combines with the speed control circuit to conveniently provide pure and stable power to the silent motor. For even greater performance, the motor is decoupled from the central plinth via a new motor suspension mechanism.

Motor

The motor pushes a custom, heavy, non-resonant Acryl platter using a sub-platter drive system and a high-grade main bearing for fluid smooth rotation. This is the ideal platform for your precious vinyl records ensuring complete reliability in its performance and acoustic character.

Tonearm

X1 updates its predecessors with rigid, seamlessly tempered Carbon/Alu sandwich tonearm inspired by The Classic turntable. This new 8.6” design is very light and sturdy, with better resistance to external interference. Finished as a single-piece, with no resonance-inducing headshell, the X1 tonearm can also be tweaked for precise azimuth and VTA settings enabling advanced analogue audiophiles to refine more than ever before. The tonearm incorporates a TPE-damped counterweight for lower cartridge/tonearm resonances.

Accessories

Available with a new Pro-Ject Pick-IT S2 MM cartridge as standard, built by the cartridge experts at Ortofon led by the design team at Pro-Ject, it is primed to play within minutes of unboxing. A pair of Connect-IT E RCA cables are included, this semi-balanced, low-capacitance cable has superior shielding optimized for turntable use. The turntable is placed on three height-adjustable, decoupling Alu/TPE sandwich feet for greater isolation from the chassis it’s placed upon. An acrylic dust cover is provided to ensure security when not in use.

Quality

X1 represents the lengthy experience and meticulous manufacturing of Pro-Ject with resources, time and effort dedicated to producing the best sound for money rather than saving costs. From the advanced motor, specially chosen cartridge, audiophile tonearm, bespoke feet to the hand-cut acrylic platter, X1 delivers audio engineering that far surpasses the mid-level price tag. X1 comes in 3 finishes; a premium walnut wood veneer or a luxurious black or white eight-layer gloss paint. No more unnecessary features, just quality audio.
