A built-in phono pre-amp and electronic speed change make the Pro-Ject E1 Phono a flexible deck for getting into vinyl – or returning to it.

The ideal introduction to vinyl
Whether you’re new to vinyl or dusting down your old LPs, the Pro-Ject E1 Phono offers the perfect balance of sound quality and practical features. Built to Pro-Ject’s high standards, the E1 Phono is solidly made, with a CNC-machined composite fibre plinth, aluminium tonearm and Ortofon cartridge. Unlike other budget decks that offer a fixed speed or awkward belt change, the E1 Phono has electronic speed control, making it easy to switch between 33rpm albums and 45rpm singles.

Built-in phonostage for flexible connectivity
The E1 Phono model features a built-in phono pre-amp. This means you can wire the deck up to any hi-fi system or speaker with an ‘AUX’ input (RCA cable supplied but your system may require an RCA to 3.5mm cable). Alternatively, the E1 Phono can still be wired into an amp’s phono input, just like the standard E1.

Made for great sound
With a vast amount of experience and design expertise, few can beat Pro-Ject for turntable knowhow. Take a look at the design and build of this turntable and you can see that experience shine through. The CNC-machined plinth has no hollow spaces and provides excellent vibration resistance. Combined with the isolation feet and anti-resonance platter, this gives the E1 Phono a well-damped, low distortion sound. The high quality, isolated DC motor gives smooth and stable pitch for lifelike sound.

Newly designed, aluminium tonearm
With an arm-tube made from a single piece of aluminium and fixed headshell, the tonearm is both light and rigid. The more rigid a tonearm, the more precisely it tracks, meaning you get to hear every nuance of detail from your records. For ease of use, all the tonearm settings are factory-set, meaning this Project deck is ready to play, straight from the box.

Complete package – with 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.

Electronic speed change
Another feature that makes the E1 Phono a great starter deck is the electronic speed control. Many decks in this class either have no speed control or a fiddly twin pulley system that means you manually have to move the belt from one pulley to another. With the E1 Phono, you get a simple switch that adjusts between 33 and 45 speeds at the click of a button. If you have a decent collection of singles and regularly switch speeds, electronic speed control makes all the difference to your user experience.

Choice of finishes
The simple, elegant styling gives the E1 Phono a timeless appeal. Available in black, white or walnut finishes, there’s a colour to suit your style. All models come with a removable dust lid.

Get into the groove, whatever your matching system, with the Pro-Ject E1 Phono turntable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Record deck The unit is fairly light but that is not a problem. Feet are soft giving a floating feel. This was easy to set up. You do get the full sound with a turntable and of cause the odd click if your records aren't totally clear of scratches and dust. Only had the turntable a short while, good buy so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A perfect partnership I bought a Pro-Ject PROJ-E1-PHONO-BLK, and a Tangent AMPSTER BT II as i was tight on space. I was pleasantly surprised that the two worked really well together. The guy's at Richer Sounds were very helpful and knowledgeable, and gave me confidence buying these two items, as i couldn't get to the showrooms. Thank you once again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The turntable is everything I expected I ordered via the Lichfield branch(faultless service as per usual) as the turntable was special order and was given a 5 day delivery date as it comes direct from the factory . It turned up on the date given with no problems, connected all the cables in and working fine within 10 minutes. Everything set up in the factory and I only had to change the Pre amp setting on the turntable. Works well and sounds good and a vast improvement on my Teac TN 300. Well pleased with turntable, I may upgrade stylus in a while but the stock one sounds quite good and with a free 6 year warranty, what's not to like.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sound, built to last I retired my old pioneer deck in 1987 and have not played a record since. I purchased this after lots and lots of research, I can honestly say its absolutely blew me away. Sound quality is excellent, the build quality is excellent for the money. Don't waste your money on buying a cheap plastic one. The way this thing is built it's gonna out live me for sure. So very easy to set up, took minutes until I was playing an LP it's almost plug and play, Stick it on a flat solid surface, every thing you need is in the box including cables. Also I just want to to say that although this is a special order, I thought the process was going to be protracted, Pascal from the Sales Team was amazing my delivery took a day. Can't tell you how good it feels to hold a record in your hands and play it on something this good after all that time.
