Pro-Ject‘s classic turntable design reimagined and lifted to new price/ performance heights!

In 1991 Pro-Ject started a revolution in HiFi with the introduction of the Pro-Ject 1 turntable. A new high-end, low budget turntable at a time when CD was king. Against all odds, we were creating interest in analogue audio at a time when others were turning their backs, and the success was only down to three critical philosophies:

– Simple yet technically correct design
– High-quality valuable materials
– Fully handcrafted, expert engineers, made in the EU

There are no fancy, unnecassary features; it was a strictly manual turntable design and all of these decisions resulted in unbelievable sound at a fantastic price. The X1 is based on the same concept as the P1, but improved in every aspect thanks to modern materials and new production methods.

The X1 has all the high-end features of modern turntable designs to maximise the music and listening experience. All these features can in fact be done at a reasonable cost. Due to our extensive experience and meticulous manufacturing processes, we put resources, time and effort into giving music lovers the best sound for their money, rather than cutting corners to save on costs. It is a statement and a counterpoint against other upcoming turntable designs, which go the way of offering more features but less performance.

A lot of convenience features can become unnecessary incredibly fast, if you don‘t make the 20 minutes of listening to a side of vinyl count. Using an automated start feature is over in a second or less, but listening takes place over many, many more seconds. Pro-Ject thinks performance and high-quality listening are the keys to making customers happy, this has been true since 1991.

The X1 is available in 3 finishes; a premium walnut wood veneer and a luxurious black or white eight-layer gloss paint.
