Pro-ject 1Xpression Carbon Classic is the 6th generation of the hi-fi classic Pro-Ject 1, which was presented for the first time in 1991. No other entry-level turntable concept is more audiophile, and the current version includes a totally new carbon tone-arm with spin-off EVO technology.
Its new, innovative gimbal design features a resonance-damping counterweight, which allows best performance for any cartridge. The approved belt-drive design offers low noise AC motor with effective motor decoupling, ultra precision frequency DC-driven AC generator (like Speed Box) for ultimate speed stability. The complex main platter construction cannot be found elsewhere in this price range and is similar to the Xtension models.
Advanced thermo plastic elastomers (TPE) are used in a sandwich construction with aluminum alloy for optimized resonance behavior. Platter bearing axle is made from low tolerance chrome plated stainless steel running on Teflon bottom in a bronze bearing housing. Turntable main plinth is from low resonance MDF, which effectively is decoupled from structure-born noise by special absorber feet that use TPE technology. As a special feature, this package comes with the outstanding 2M Silver cartridge, which features silver spools for ultimate fidelity.
Beside its class-leading sound quality, this turntable convinces with classic elegance and three first-class finish options.
The Gloss Black with Pearl Cartridge model features an upgraded platter.
