Pro-Ject X1 Turntable

A Mature and Authoritative Listening Experience 

The Pro-Ject X1 Turntable brings classic Pro-Ject design into the modern era, resulting in a superb turntable with electronic speed control, a heavy acrylic platter & a tempered carbon & aluminium tonearm.

Nat's thoughts:

Although it would be easy to think X1 is simply an updated version of the 1xpression, in reality however they are very different with nearly every aspect of X1 undertaking an upgrade. 

The X1 is a more mature and authoritative listening experience, digging deeper into the music and offering greater space between the instruments, It really is a substantial upgrade! Pro-Ject should be applauded for all the upgrades whilst remaining competitively priced.

Manufacturers Details

Pro-Ject‘s classic turntable design reimagined

Directly descended from the very first turntable Pro-Ject released back in 1991, the X1 is the culmination of more than 25 years of design experience, and those decades of refinement are reflected in an exceptionally elegant, simple, and beautifully-crafted turntable.

Dense MDF plinth with gorgeous finish options

Every aspect of the X1 is crafted to a premium standard, to ensure a sublime experience for all senses. The dense MDF plinth gives the X1 a solid feel that reflects its quality construction, while also providing another line of resistance against unwanted vibrations that can spoil your music. The gorgeous Piano Black finish is painted in eight careful layers and hand-polished for a lustrous feel that you’d expect to find on a far more expensive product. The Walnut finish has a more natural feel, bringing an understated elegance to spaces with warmer décor.

Push-button speed control

Switch easily between 33⅓ and 45 RPM records with the X1’s push-button speed control, and even play 78 RPM records with a suitable cartridge.

Engineered With Care

Heavy acrylic platter

More than just an eye-catching aesthetic feature, the translucent acrylic platter is a perfect companion to vinyl, making sure nothing extra is added to the sound so you can enjoy your records exactly as they were intended. The X1’s 1.5kg acrylic platter helps ensure smooth, accurate speed as well as further resisting unwanted vibrations.

The Motor

The chassis houses a sophisticated DC/AC generator board which, combined with the convenient speed control board, delivers clean and stable power to the quiet-running motor. For improved performance the motor is decoupled from the main plinth using an upgraded motor suspension system. In the X1, the motor drives the Acryl platter via a sub-platter drive system and a premium grade main bearing for liquid smooth rotation.

The tonearm

The X1 is also better than its predecessors thanks to the super-stiff, perfectly tempered Carbon/Alu sandwich construction tonearm. This new 8.6” tonearm design is incredibly light and stiff, with improved resistance to external interference. Finished as one-piece, with a non-resonance-inducing headshell, the X1 tonearm can also be set for azimuth and VTA adjustment, offering the flexibility that so many people are asking for. The tonearm is then supplied with a TPE-damped counterweight, further reducing cartridge-tonearm resonances.

Who's This Turntable For?

The X1 is a perfect fit for someone looking for a more mature turntable. Maybe you have owned other record players in the past, and now you are looking to "future-proof" your setup. With this turntable you have landed on a high-quality deck that will still leave you with some pocket change for a nice amplifier or speakers.

Key Features:

  • Azimuth & VTA: Fully adjustable

    The X1 comes with fully adjustable Azimuth & VTA. It offers you the possibility to modify your X1 as you want it.

  • Metal Feet: Damped & height adjustable

    The three height adjustable damped aluminium feet guarantee the perfect stand & massively reduce risk of acoustical feedback.

  • 1.5 kg Platter: Resonance free acryl

    The perfect platform to place your precious vinyl records, guaranteeing absolute reliability in its performance and sonic character.

  • 33/45/78 RPM: High precision motor control

    A sophisticated DC/AC generator board generates clean and stable power to drive the motor. Easily change speed with the push of only a single button.

Gabi Recommends:

The options here are pretty broad, this table is good enough to be put on the Roksan K3 Amplifier or even a really nice step up for the Rotel A10 however we think the sweet spot is the Rotel A12 MKII Integrated Amplifier and the Monitor Audio Silver 100 7G bookshelf speakers.  

Want to make it easy? Alternatively, we recommend this table bundled together with a Leak Stereo 130 amplifier and Wharfedale Denton 85th Anniversary Bookshelf Speakers as part of a fantastic pack to make getting started that much easier! Don't miss out on our The Classic Digital Pack.
