The Pro-Ject 1Xpression Carbon III Turntable is the 6th generation of the 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 tonearm with spin-off EVO technology.   

Its new and innovative gimbal design features a resonance damping counterweight that 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 steel alloy for optimized resonance behavior. Platter bearing axle is made from low tolerance chrome plated stainless steel running on a Teflon bottom in bronze bearing housing. Turntable main plinth is made from low resonance MDF, which effectively is decoupled from structure-born noise by special absorber feet, that use TPE technology.  

Beside its class-leading sound quality, this turntable convinces with classic elegance and high-class black piano finish.
