Pro-Ject T1 Phono SB (Walnut)
In-store Clearance item
A step-up in sound
Built for sound above all else, the Project T1 SB 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 Phono SB is made to class-leading standards.
Engineered for sound
Unlike many other turntables around this price, the Pro-Ject T1 Phono SB 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.
Speed Box control
Unlike the standard version of the T1, this SB version features electronic speed change. Rather than having to lift the platter and physically change the belt to another pulley, the speed is changed at the touch of a button. If you regular switch between 33 and 45rpm records, this feature proves to be a great convenience and time saver.
Another advantage with the SB version of the T1 turntable is a built-in phonostage (also known as a phono pre-amp). This means you can wire the deck up to any hi-fi system with an ‘AUX’ input. Alternatively, the T1 Phono SB can still be wired into a phono input, just as with the standard T1.
Single piece aluminium tonearm
Continuing its hi-fi credentials, the Pro-Ject T1 SB 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 SB a sleek appearance. Available in black, white or walnut, there’s a colour to suit you. All models come with a removable dust lid.
