Pro-Ject X1 Turntable
The X1 has eight layers of paint and a hand-polished finish providing an exquisite look and feel, that will last for generations. Inside, a sophisticated DC/AC generator board which, combined with the convenient speed control board, delivers clean and stable power to the quiet running motor. The motor is decoupled from the plinth via a new motor suspension system that isolates and quells vibrations. In the X1, the motor drives a heavy, 1.5 kg non-resonant acrylic platter via a sub-platter drive system and a premium-grade main bearing for liquid smooth rotation. This is the perfect platform on which to place your precious vinyl records, guaranteeing absolute reliability in its performance and sonic character. The X1 incorporates a newly developed Carbon Fiber/ Aluminum composite construction tonearm. This 8.6” tonearm design is incredibly light and stiff, with remarkable resistance to external interference. With an integrated headshell and one piece tonearm wiring, the X1 also provides azimuth and VTA adjustment, offering the flexibility for optimization with a huge range of cartridges. The factory installs and aligns the amazing new Sumiko Olympia cartridge simplifying setup, and providing superb tracking ability as well as a very musical and engaging presentation. The tonearm utilizes TPE damped counterweight, minimizing resonances. The X1 is also supplied with our Connect it cables, a semi- balanced, low-capacitance cable with superior shielding optimized for turntable use.
