Pro-Ject T1: The New Generation
Turntable The T1 from Pro-Ject Audio Systems is the first turntable on the T-Line to deliver true HiFi sound quality for little money. This shines with high-quality materials, a stylish look and an incredibly lively sound. During the extensive development process, meticulous care was taken not to compromise on sound quality despite the incredible price.
Compared to the standard T1 model, the Phono SB version has an integrated, high-quality MM phono preamp developed by Pro-Ject and an electronic speed switch between 33 and 45 RPM.
The stylish, CNC machined chassis, available in high-gloss black, matt white & walnut, contains no plastic parts and is made completely without cavities, so that no unwanted vibrations in the chassis can occur.
In keeping with this philosophy, the glass platter is also solid. In contrast to plastic or light steel plate plates, so unwanted resonances are effectively suppressed.
Audiophile design is raised to a completely new, affordable entry level
With many other turntables incorporating unregulated DC motors with massive tracking variations, the T1 Phono SB features our well-established, electronically controlled, precise AC motor. The T1 Phono SB also has an electronic speed switch between 33 and 45 RPM. This system guarantees a quiet, stable drive of the turntable.
The turntable of the T1 is belt driven. This precisely transfers the drive power to the newly designed subplate, which in turn sits in the ultra-precise 0.001mm platter bearing with a hardened stainless steel shaft in a brass bushing; just like in our proven Essential III models. Thus, the T1 offers - in addition to its quiet engine - a stable and low-resonance platform for tonearm and pickup.
The T1 tonearm is a new tonearm version built on proven Pro-Ject designs. The 8.6 "long tonearm consists of a single piece of aluminum and is equipped with low-friction bearings so that sampling is always done with absolute precision. In addition to the great looks, the integrated headshell prevents additional vibrations, which occur with glued or screwed headshells, and is so great sound improvement.
The pre-assembled Ortofon OM 5E quality pickup with elliptical pin-cut makes this turntable a true hi-fi playback device without compromise. In addition, the T1 is not - as often happens - only with simple cinch cable delivered. In the scope of supply are namely excellent shielded, quasi-symmetrical, low-capacitive phono cables, which were designed by Pro-Ject specifically for the connection of turntables included. In addition, there is also a dust cover, for additional protection of the T1 and a felt mat, which serves as a soft support surface for your plates, in the package.
