Product Information

1Xpression Carbon Classic Turntable With Ortofon's 2M Silver Phono Cartridge - Classic turntable with superior tone-arm & advanced magnetic cartridge reaches magical performance levels!  

1Xpression Carbon Classic is the 6th generation of the hi-fi classic Pro-Ject 1, which was presented for the first time in 1991. No other entry-level turntable concept is more audiophile and the current version includes a totally new carbon tone-arm with spin-off "EVO"-technology. Its new innovative gimbal design features a resonance damping counterweight, that allows best performance for any cartridge. The approved belt drive design offers low noise AC motor with effective motor decoupling, ultra precision frequency DC-driven AC generator (like Speed Box) for ultimate speed stability.

The complex main platter construction cannot be found elsewhere in this price range and is similar to the Xtension models. Advanced thermo plastic elastomers (TPE) are used in a sandwich construction with aluminium alloy for optimized resonance behaviour. Platter bearing axle is made from low tolerance chrome plated stainless steel running on Teflon bottom in a bronze bearing housing. Turntable main plinth is from low resonance MDF, which effectivly is decoupled from structure-born noise by special absorber feet, that use TPE technology. As a special feature, this package comes with the outstanding 2M Silver cartridge, which features silver spools for ultimate fidelity.

The 1Xpression Carbon Classic Turntable comes with Ortofon's 2M Silver phono cartridge. The 2M Silver is interchangeable with Ortofon's 2M Red, 2M Red Verso, 2M Blue, and 2M Blue Verso phono cartridges.
