Product Information

The A1 has a fully automatic start/stop with the automatics being completely disengaged and decoupled during the entire runtime of the record. The fully mechanical automatics are engaged when you press start and the tonearm is automatically moved to the lead-in groove of the record. Once playing, the automatics are completely taken out of the equation and do not affect the playback quality.

ULM Aluminum Tonearm

The A1 features an 8.3” ultra-light-mass aluminum tonearm. Together with the Ortofon OM10, which fits this design principle perfectly, you get extraordinary fast response and detail in terms of transients and microdynamics. Tracking force and anti-skating are factory pre-adjusted which makes the A1 plug & play ready within a few seconds. This makes it perfect for vinyl beginners and experienced listeners alike as the sound quality is carried by all the audiophile features the A1 has on offer.

Ortofon OM10

A little-known fact is that the OM series of cartridges have their developmental roots and legacy in ultra-light-mass tonearm designs. Pre-fitted and adjusted in Pro-Ject's factory, it is the perfect partner for your A1.

New Headshell

The headshell is made of carbon fiber-reinforced polymer which is super stable and rigid while keeping the weight super low. The composite material results in excellent internal damping of resonances.

Wood Chassis

The chassis avoids hollow spaces wherever possible, with just enough space to precision fit all the inner workings of the A1. As a result, the chassis' heavy mass reduces unwanted resonances to a minimum.

Damped Platter

The damping ring on the inside adds weight and reduces resonances. In the last step, the platter is turned and precision balanced to receive its fine edges and lowest wow and flutter deviations.

Connect it E

To guarantee a perfect connection to your amp, Pro-Ject uses a high-quality phono RCA cable. The Connect it E is a semi-balanced, low-capacitance cable, with superior shielding.

Phono Preamp

If you don't have a phono preamplifier in your current HiFi setup, you will benefit from the A1s built-in one. If you want to use another phono preamp, you can easily switch it off.

33/45 RPM

No need to change the belt position. Easily change speed with the push of only a single button & listen to your favorite LPs as well as singles.

Automat Line

The A1 is fully handmade in Germany and looks back on decades of experience. Paired with Pro-Ject technology, it sets new standards in automatic turntable design.

Does it automatically pick up the arm at the end of the record? Or do you need to push the stop switch ?
Mad85704 on Nov 11, 2022
  Thanks for your inquiry. The Automat A1 is fully automatic. Press start, arm lifts and moves to record. At end of play arm automatically lifts and returns to rest.
