 The Pro-Ject X1 Turntable brings classic Pro-Ject design into the modern era, resulting in a superb turntable with electronic speed control, a heavy acrylic platter & a tempered carbon & aluminum tonearm.

Pro-Ject‘s classic turntable design reimagined

Directly descended from the very first turntable Pro-Ject released back in 1991, the X1 is the culmination of more than 25 years of design experience, and those decades of refinement are reflected in an exceptionally elegant, simple, and beautifully-crafted turntable.


Dense MDF plinth with gorgeous finish options

Every aspect of the X1 is crafted to a premium standard, to ensure a sublime experience for all senses. The dense MDF plinth gives the X1 a solid feet that reflects its quality construction, while also providing another line of resistance against unwanted vibrations that can spoil your music. The gorgeous Piano Black Finish is painted in eight careful layers and hand-polished for a lustrous feel that you'd expect to find on a far more expensive product. The Walnut finish has a more natural feel, bringing an understated elegance to spaces with warmer decor.

 

Push-button speed control

Switch easily between 33⅓ and 45 RPM records with the X1’s push-button speed control, and even play 78 RPM records with a suitable cartridge.

 

Heavy acrylic platter

More than just an eye-catching aesthetic feature, the translucent acrylic platter is a perfect companion to vinyl, making sure nothing extra is added to the sound so you can enjoy your records exactly as they were intended. The X1's 1.5kg acrylic platter helps ensure smooth, accurate speed as well as further resisting unwanted vibrations.

 

The Motor

The chassis 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 improved performance the motor is decoupled from the main plinth using an upgraded motor suspension system. In the X1, the motor drives the Acryl platter via a sub-platter drive system and a premium grade main bearing for liquid smooth rotation.

 

The tonearm

The X1 is also better than its predecessors thanks to the super-stiff, perfectly tempered Carbon/Alu sandwich construction tonearm. The new 8.6" tonearm design is incredibly light and stiff, with improved resistance to external interference. Finished as one-piece, with a non-resonance-inducing headshell, the X1 tonearm can also be set for azimuth and VTA adjustment, offering the flexibility that so many people are asking for. The tonearm is then supplied with a TPE-damped counterweight, further reducing cartridge-tonearm resonances.
