”This is a seriously good record player for under £300 and it has to be seen as a clear and obvious Best Buy as a result of it.” ’AV Forums’ – Best Buy.

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 Works well, looks good, exactly what i wanted This is an excellent turntable for the price. The signal it delivers to my amp is much better than my previous old turntable, and the walnut finish looks really good. I got exactly what I wanted for my budget and the reason why was because the Richer Sounds staff were so helpful. Anis took the time to get to know what I wanted from a sound system and in particular a turntable and recommended this product. He was right! Thank you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks fantastic Well made, looks fantastic in Walnut, sounds terrific - such a joy to get my old vinyl out of the attic. I would have given it 5 stars but switching from 45 to 33 is a bit of a faff as you have to lift the glass turntable off and manually move the belt, I fear this will stretch the belt over time - that said, delighted with the purchase and the advice from the member of staff that I did not need the more expensive version as my NAD amp could cope with the turntable - and it does, I have been a customer for years and keep coming back as they are so honest and have customer service at the heart of all they do.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good turntable Looks great, easy to use and sounds good. A Lot slimmer and a bit more delicate than my older project turntable! The belt doesn’t seem to like the 45 speed! A bit slippy! But overall, very pleased with purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks great, sounds great! Bought this for my partners birthday and we are both thrilled with the quality of the turntable. It looks great, sounds great and was very easy to set up. It arrived super fast and well packaged and its encouraging that it comes with a 6 year guarantee as standard.
