The New... Pro-Ject X1 Turntable with Ortofon Pick it S2 MM cartridge & Hinged Perspex Dust Cover
Structurally, the X1 is framed by its new large, heavier, dense MDF structure, far out-performing the cheaper, particle board or plastic chassis alternatives. Inside, it houses a sophisticated DC/AC generator board which, combined with the convenient speed control board, delivers clean and stable power to the quiet-running motor. For even further improved performance, the motor is decoupled from the main plinth using a new motor suspension system.
In the X1, the motor drives a new, heavy, non-resonant Acryl platter via a sub-platter drive system and a premium grade main bearing for liquid smooth rotation. This is the perfect platform on which to place your precious vinyl records, guaranteeing absolute reliability in its performance and sonic character.
The X1 is also better than its predecessors thanks to the super-stiff, perfectly tempered Carbon/Alu sandwich construction tonearm, inspired by our superior The Classic turntable. This new 8.6” tonearm design is incredibly light and stiff, with improved resistance to external interference. Finished as a one-piece, with no resonance-inducing headshell, the X1 can also be set for azimuth and VTA adjustment, for fine tuning by more advanced analogue audiophiles. The tonearm is then supplied with a TPE-damped counterweight, further reducing cartridge-tonearm resonances.
The X1 truly represents the epitome of Pro-Ject’s core philosophies. Due to our extensive experience and meticulous manufacturing processes, we put resources, time and effort into giving music lovers the best sound for their money, rather than cutting corners to save on costs. From our sophisticated motor drive system on to the optional specially selected cartridge, the audiophile tonearm set-up features, the purpose-designed feet, the hand-cut acrylic platter and beyond, X1 delivers a luxury level of audio and technical excellence that belies the mid-level price tag.
Say goodbye to unnecessary features, and hello to quality audio once again, with Pro-Ject X1.
