Pro-Ject Audio T1 Phono SB Turntable
A New Generation of Turntable – Made in Europe
LENC's Pro-Ject Audio T1 Phono SB Turntable Review:
If theirs one word I would use to describe the Pro-Ject Audio T1 Phono SB Turntable it would be fun. With a quick and easy setup and phono stage built-in, there's next to no time between unboxing your new turntable and playing great music. You would be hard-pressed to find a better or easier way to get your records spinning.

The stylish CNC-machined plinth of the T1 features no plastic parts and is carefully manufactured to ensure there are no hollow spaces inside, therefore avoiding unwanted vibrations within the chassis. Carrying this philosophy through the design, the glass platter is also a heavy, zero-resonance design. Finally, the purpose-chosen turntable feet also do a good job of isolating the T1 from ambient vibrations around your hi-fi system. In the T1 the motor drives a belt-system, attached to a newly designed sub-platter, which is mounted into an ultra-precise 0.001mm main bearing with a hardened steel axle and brass bushing – just like our Essential III turntables. The tonearm new tonearm has an effective length of 8.6”. This one-piece aluminum tonearm also features low-friction bearings for absolute accuracy in use. The T1 comes with a pre-adjusted Ortofon OM 5E Moving Magnet cartridge and is ready to use right out of the box. Also, super shielded, semi-symmetrical, low-capacitance Pro-Ject phono cables are included.

Pair This With:
Being a great turntable for those getting into records for the first time we highly recommend pairing the Pro-Ject Audio T1 Phono SB Turntable with The Audio Pro A26 Powered Speakers using the AudioQuest Tower Series 3.5mm to RCA cable for an all in one setup that also allows for things such as Spotify Connect and your Television. If you are looking for something a little simpler we also recommend pairing it with either the Audio Pro Addon C10 or even the Audio Pro BT5 for very small rooms. It also pairs up brilliantly with the Sonos Five if you're looking for sound with a little extra kick.
