Product Information

A Real Turntable at a Really Amazing Price

The T1 from Pro-Ject Audio Systems is the first T-Line turntable, aiming to deliver true high-fidelity sound on a limited budget. Boasting premium materials, stylish aesthetics and a rich, lively sound, the extensive development process has ensured that there has been no compromise in  the sound performance when achieving such an affordable price.

Features

  • Precision belt-drive
  • Electronic 33/45 RPM speed change
  • Ortofon OM5e Moving Magnet pickup, factory aligned
  • Simple setup, tracking force and anti-skate factory adjusted
  • Anti-resonant sub-platter design
  • Precision CNC‘d chassis: NO hollow spaces, NO plastic
  • One-piece tonearm design with integrated headshell
  • Dust cover with adjustable hinges

Pushing Audiophile Design to a New Affordable Level

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 coveted Essential III turntables.

Supplied with an Ortofon OM 5E Moving Magnet cartridge, featuring an elliptical diamond stylus tip; this is a true hi-fi playback system with no corners cut.

The stylish CNC-machined plinth, available in High Gloss Black, Satin White or Walnut finish, 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 – again avoiding the flaws of plastic or lightweight steel alternatives. Finally, the purpose-chosen turntable feet also do a good job of isolating the T1 from ambient vibrations around your hi-fi system.

The tonearm on the T1 is a new model, based on previous Pro-Ject designs. With its straight, 8.6” effective length and stiff aluminium construction, this one-piece tonearm also features low-friction bearings for absolute accuracy in use. Besides the clean and stylish looks, the  integrated headshell won‘t cause any additional vibrations either, and is a big improvement over other detachable, screwed-on or glued-on headshells!

The T1 is then finished with super shielded, semi-symmetrical, low-capacitance phono cables, purpose-designed by Pro-Ject – not off-the shelf RCA cables. There is also a dust cover for extra protection and a felt mat to protect your records.

Very impressive intro into vinyl.
Great table for a beginner, sounds great and setup was very easy. Very attractive and is available in different finishes. I'm playing through a Peachtree Nova 300 and couldn't be happier with my purchase.

A shopper on Nov 30, 2020
