Pro-Ject X1 B Turntable with Pick It PRO Balanced Pre-Fitted


Directly descended from the very first turntable Pro-Ject released back in 1991, the X1 is the culmination of more than 25 years of design experience. Those decades of refinement are reflected in an exceptionally elegant, simple, and beautifully crafted turntable.

Available in Piano Black and Walnut.

MDF Chassis

Pro-Ject have crafted the X1 from medium density fibreboard (MDF) rather than standard particle boards. The acoustic qualities of MDF result in a better sounding and feeling turntable. The chassis is toppedwith 8 layers of painting and a hand-polished finish, designed to look good and stay looking good, especially when compared to commonly used foil painting techniques.

Sophisticated Motor Technology

The chassis of the X1 houses a sophisticated DC/AC generator board which, combined with the convenient speed control board, delivers clean and stable power to the quiet-running motor. For improved performance and to eliminate sonic transference, the motor is decoupled from the main plinth using a newly designed motor suspension system.

8.6" Carbon/Aluminium Tonearm

The X1 easily outpaces its predecessors thanks to the super-stiff, perfectly tempered Carbon/Aluminium sandwich construction tonearm. This new 8.6” tonearm is incredibly light and stiff, with improved resistance to external interference. The X1 tonearm offers azimuth and VTA adjustment, meaning you have a high level of flexibility and customisability with your cartridge choice. This tonearm is constructed as one piece, with a resonance-eliminating headshell, and fitted with a TPE-damped counterweight. The one-piece design and TPE damping greatly reduce cartridge-tonearm resonances.

Reliable Platter Assembly

In the X1, the motor drives a heavy, 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.
