Product Information

In 1991 Pro-Ject started a revolution in HiFi with the introduction of the Pro-Ject 1 turntable. A new high-end, low budget turntable at a time when CD was king. Against all odds, they were creating interest in analog audio at a time when others were turning their backs, and the success was only down to three critical philosophies: - Simple yet technically correct design - High-quality valuable materials - Fully handcrafted, expert engineers, made in the EU. There are no fancy, unnecessary features; it was a strictly manual turntable design, and all of these decisions resulted in unbelievable sound at a fantastic price. The X1 is based on the same concept as the P1 but improved in every aspect thanks to modern materials and new production methods.

Better Chassis

Heavier, denser, less resonating new MDF material

Better Platter

Non-resonating, heavier Acryl platter

Better Counterweight

New Anti-resonant counterweight with TPE damper to reduce cartridge-tonearm resonance

Better Motor Speed Control and Electronic Speed Change

A sophisticated DC/AC generator board generates clean and stable power to drive the motor

Better Audiophile Features

Aluminum Tonearm Base with Azimuth and VTA adjustment

Better Cable

All of Pro-Ject's turntables come with a high-quality phono RCA cable. Their Connect it E is a semi-balanced, low-capacitance cable, with superior shielding. Compared to other digital and analog music sources, the signal coming from a turntable cartridge is very fragile in nature and cheap RCA cables often do not provide the ideal conditions for getting a phono signal to an amplifier. The Connect it E is purpose-designed for this exact application.

Can I get this with the ortofon 2M blue or bronze cartridge?
A shopper on Aug 24, 2021
  Thanks for your inquiry. We are often asked about cartridge substitutions. Pre-mounted cartridges are included by the manufacturer and many models (like the X1) are not available without the pre-mounted cartridge. Those other cartridges are sold separately. Give us a call at 866.961.7781 for further assistance.
