Now featuring True Balanced Connection
Based on the award-winning X1, the new X1 B benefits from Pro-Jects True Balanced Connection. The balanced output uses a mini-XLR socket to create a studio-quality link when used with suitable phono pre-amp (compatible models include Pro-Ject Phono Box S3 B and Phono Box DS3 B)*. A balanced connection resists noise from wi-fi, Bluetooth and other airborne interference, giving you a much purer and less distorted sound.
*Note, an upgraded MC cartridge must be used to facilitate the True Balanced Connection.
Built for class-leading sound quality
Even when used with conventional cables, the X1 B is still a highly impressive turntable. The top quality construction begins with the ultra-low resistance bearing and takes in an isolated motor and heavy acrylic platter – all of which help to promote a smooth, distortion-free sound quality.
Vibration resistant for even less distortion
Using a heavy, MDF chassis, the X1 B is far more rigid and resistant to vibration than plastic-based or lesser MDF 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 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.
For those wanting to get the very best performance from this 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 B.
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 up to 8-layers of painting and hand-polished finishing, the X1 B 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 interior.
Superb straight out of the box, the Pro-Ject X1 B has the potential for even more, making it the perfect long-term choice.
