Product Description

Pro-Ject‘s classic turntable design reimagined and lifted to new price/ performance heights!

In 1991 Pro-Ject started a revolution in HiFi with the introduction of the Pro-Ject 1 turntable. A new high-end, low budget turntable at a time when CD was king. Against all odds, we were creating interest in analogue audio at a time when others were turning their backs, and the success was only down to three critical philosophies:

– Simple yet technically correct design
– High-quality valuable materials
– Fully handcrafted, expert engineers, made in the EU

There are no fancy, unnecessary features; it was a strictly manual turntable design and all of these decisions resulted in unbelievable sound at a fantastic price. The X1 is based on the same concept as the P1, but improved in every aspect thanks to modern materials and new production methods.

  • Better Chassis:
    Heavier, denser, less resonating, new MDF material
  • Better Platter:
    Non resonating, heavier Acryl platter
  • Better Motor Isolation:
    New motor suspension for better decoupling of the motor vibrations to tonearm and chassis
  • Better Tonearm:
    Superstiff, perfectly damped Carbon/Alu sandwich construction
  • Better Counterweight:
    New Anti-resonant counterweight with TPE damper to reduce cartridge-tonearm resonance
  • Better Motor Speed Control and Electronic Speed Change:
    A sophisticated DC/AC generator board generates clean and stable power to drive the motor
  • Better Feet:
    Height adjustable, isolating Alu/TPE sandwich feet
  • Better Cartridge:
    Premium Ortofon made, Pro-Ject sound tuned MM cartridge
  • Better audiophile features:
    Aluminium Tonearm Base with Azimuth and VTA adjustment
    Stiff one-piece tonearm without a vibration causing detachable headshell
  • Better Cable:
    All our turntables come with a high-quality phono RCA cable. Our Connect it E is a semi-balanced, low-capacitance cable, with superior shielding. Compared to other digital and analog music sources, the signal coming from a turntable cartridge is very fragile in nature and cheap RCA cables often do not provide the ideal conditions for getting a phono signal to an amplifier. The Connect it E is purpose-designed for this exact application.
