“Highly capable at the price, it gives its rivals a seriously hard time…” – ‘Hi-Fi News’ ‘Outstanding Product’

Top quality construction for the best sound

Like all Pro-Ject turntables, the X1 eschews gimmicks for the best sound quality possible. The top quality bearing uses a combination of stainless steel, brass and Teflon for ultra-low resistance. Combined with the isolated motor, this gives the X1 smooth, consistent speed. The heavy Acryl platter offers the ideal interface for vinyl records – helping produce a more natural sound.

Vibration resistant
Using a heavy, MDF chassis, the X1 is far more rigid and resistant to vibration than plastic-based decks. In addition to this, height adjustable, hybrid material feet effectively damp away mechanical vibrations form other hi-fi components on the same shelf or footfall in the room.

Super-rigid tonearm for the best signal
The new tonearm uses a carbon and aluminium sandwich construction for super rigidity. The stiffer a tonearm is the more effectively it carries the sound, undistorted to the next stage in the signal. A further high-end feature is the TPE damped counterweight – helping to reduce resonance distortion still further.

Fully adjustable
For those of you wanting to get the very best performance from your deck, the tonearm also features pro-level adjustments. As well as the usual weight and anti-skating, you can also adjust the VTA (Vertical tracking Angle, or height) and Azimuth. This gives near infinite levels of fine-tuning.

Ortofon Pick it S2 cartridge included
Matching the quality of the deck and tonearm, the supplied Pick it S2 cartridge is supplied by cartridge experts, Ortofon, to best suit the characteristics of the X1.

Speed control – at the touch of a button
Although Pro-Ject have kept unnecessary features to a minimum, the electronic speed control helps provide a clean and stable power supply to the motor – with the further advantage of push button speed control between 33 and 45.

Choice of luxury finishes
With 8-layers of painting and hand-polished finishing, the X1 looks every bit as good as it sounds. Choose between high gloss black, white, or satin-waxed walnut for the finish that best suits your style.

Treat your precious vinyl to a deck that goes further – the Pro-Ject X1.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great look !! Even better sound After doing my research I opted for the project x1 .. So glad I did . The sound is crystal clear, and every record I own sounds so much better for being played on this beauty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressed I spent ages considering spending more than twice this amount on a turntable but finally took the plunge on this more modestly priced X1 and wow, compared to my old cheap plasticky Marantz, this seems like another level completely. The sound is tight and rhythmic but with that lovely warmth and depth that makes you feel the musicians are in front of you. Easy to set up, feels very well made and looks the business. My records are having a good workout again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow ... what a great sound With all this streaming and CDs, I had forgotten how warm and brilliant a sound you get from vinyl when played on a beautiful record player. This record player produces no hum, the needle moves smoothly across the grooves. The player looks good, plays good and is absolutely brilliant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pro-Ject X1 Turntable The sound from this turntable is amazing. I'm hearing detail that I have never heard before. I have been listening to quite a varied selection of records now and each time I am amazed by the quality of the sound and precision that the X1 produces. I would definitely recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Turntable Bought to replace a 1970’s B&O turntable. So pleased with it. Minimum setup required. Quality equal to much more expensive units.
