Designed for sound over gimmicks, the Project T1 is the perfect introduction to vinyl playback.

The perfect turntable for getting started with vinyl – or coming back to it
Built for sound above all else, the Project T1 features levels of engineering excellence that you might not expect at this price. With a specification that includes a CNC machined plinth with isolation feet, a glass platter, one-piece tonearm and a quality Ortofon cartridge, the T1 is made to class-leading standards.

Engineered for sound
Unlike many other turntables around this price, the Pro-Ject T1 has all the elements of a proper hi-fi turntable - just at a lower price. Rather than plastic, the CNC machined plinth is made from MDF. This gives lower resonance for reduced distortion. Mounted to the plinth is a steel/brass bearing that’s the same as the award-winning Essential III and, combined with the new heavy glass platter, provides smooth and stable running for perfect pitch.

Single piece aluminium tonearm
Continuing its hi-fi credentials, the Pro-Ject Essential III is supplied with a good quality tonearm. Made from a single piece of aluminium, it's both light and rigid. The more rigid the more precisely it tracks, making listening to your records a more involving experience. For ease of use the tracking forces are preset and ready to go.

Ortofon OM5E cartridge supplied
Part of the standard package includes a pre-fitted Ortofon OM5E cartridge. Highly regarded, this quality budget cartridge gives a smooth, detailed sound that’s at home with all types of music. As part of the Optimum Match (OM) range, the stylus is upgradable to 10, 20, 30 and 40 models, giving plenty of scope for future upgrading.

Choice of finishes
The simple, elegant styling gives the T1 a sleek appearance. Available in black, white or walnut, there’s a colour to suit you. All models come with a removable dust lid.

Open your ears to just how good vinyl can sound, with the Project T1.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple & Straightforward After the children moving out amd able to regain a "Sanctuary" to travel back in time with the sounds of my muched loved Records, many hours I spent pondering over the choice of Turntable before choising this model and very pleased that I did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value Amazing Sound Purchased a few weeks ago and got a separate pre amp to run through a sound bar, sound is absolutely spot on. Great platter absolutely no vibration. Cartridge is excellent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Impressive product at a good price I bought this 'budget' level turntable to replace my old but impressive Linn whilst it awaits repair during the lock down. It's a good looking simple design and has surprisingly high standard of sound comparing favorably to my Linn. Whilst as you would expect the depth of sound and detail is not of the same standard it's still very good. The tone arm and cartridge are good but the gloss black 'piano' finish of the MDF base could be better. Overall I'm very happy with the product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loving this so far Came well packed and easy the assemble. The attached cables and decent length and appear to be very good quality. To my ears when played through a slightly ageing Cambridge Audio amp the sound is nice warm and balanced. It plays well has a nicely damed tonearm lifter and looks good as well. The only negative point about the turntable is that the cables are all captive so you could find yourself trying to hide excess. Would have given five stars but I had to pay from r a phono pre amp. Obviously if I could have bought from a store and locked out due to Covid I could have had a more informed discussion with sales staff. As I purchased online I relied on the product specs on the website. I think it would better if you could clearly mark on every turntable if it has phono out or not but that's a website issue not a product issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sounding Turntable I have had this turntable for 3 weeks and been using it daily and what can i say ‘the sound is amazing’ on every record i play crystal clear with nice bass (not too heavy). The look and build quality is superb and highly recommend this turntable its great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple and quick to set up and use Bought this a couple of weeks ago to listen again to my old vinyl records after 20 years. Chose the Project T1 as it offered the right balance of sound quality and value for money. Tried initially but couldn't get any volume out of it using the direct line on an amplifier I also ordered. Turns out I also needed a phono amplifier as the amp didn't have a dedicated phono in. Since then very happy with the sound.
