Product Information

Audiophile Grade Entry Level Turntable with Phono Preamp

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. Compared to the base T1-model, the Phono SB version includes a built-in, Pro-Ject designed, high quality phono preamp and an electronic speed switch between  33 and 45 RPM.


  • 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.

This is my first turntable and it's an absolute dream. I feel like I couldn't have gotten a better product. The built in pre-amp works great with Sonos as well.

Perfect Turn Table
This is perfect for our home and setup. The staff at World Wide was amazing in guiding us to the right equipment within our budget. I cannot wait to continue working with them to upgrade other components!

I love the turntable so far. It was easy to install, came set up and balanced, with a good stylus. The fact that it is not automatic shut off is not a problem - very smooth mechanics. It also looks great.

Awesome turntable!!
This is my first “real” turntable and I couldn’t be more satisfied. Looks amazing, simple to set up, and comes with a nice cover. Now I’m motivated to get a proper speaker setup! :)

Do they make a unit that can make digital cd or mp3?
Robert on Mar 22, 2020
  Thanks for your question. The Pro-Ject Primary Phono USB Plug and Play unit has a USB output you could connect to a computer to store music files. Those files could be ripped to a CD drive and (possibly) be converted to MP3 (depending on your computer software).
can i plug this in to class audio preamp i dont have a phono imput ?
A shopper on Feb 20, 2020
  Thank you for your question. Because the turntable includes a phono preamp it can be connected to an audio line in jack, like AUX, CD, Tuner, Tape. Make sure the Pro-Ject phono preamp is on.
