Pro-Ject A1 Automatic Turntable

Introducing the new Pro-Ject A1 Automat fully automatic turntable

After years of research and development, Pro-Ject Audio Systems are thrilled to announce their very first automatic turntable, which utilises technology that sacrifices none of the sonic quality the brand has built its reputation on.

The A1 has a fully automatic start/stop with the automatics being completely disengaged and decoupled during the entire runtime of the record. The fully mechanical automatics are engaged when you press start and the tonearm is automatically moved to the lead in groove of the record. Once playing, the automatics are completely taken out of the equation and do not affect the playback quality.

Features

ULM Aluminium Tonearm

The A1 features an 8.3” ultra-light-mass aluminium tonearm. Together with the Ortofon OM10, which fits this design principle perfectly, we get extraordinary fast response and detail in terms of transients and microdynamics. Tracking force and anti-skating are factory pre-adjusted which make the A1 plug & play ready within a few seconds. This makes it perfect for vinyl beginners and experienced listeners alike as the sound quality is carried by all the audiophile features the A1 has on offer.

Ortofon OM10 Cartridge - Detailed Response & Microdynamics

A little-known fact is that the OM series of cartridges have their developmental roots and legacy in ultra-light-mass tonearm designs. Pre-fitted and adjusted in our factory, it is the perfect partner for your A1.

Carbon fibre reinforced headshell

The headshell is made of carbon fibre reinforced polymer which is super stable and rigid, while keeping the weight super low. The composite material results in excellent internal damping of resonances.

Wood Chassis - Heavy and avoids hollow spaces

The chassis avoids hollow spaces wherever possible, with just enough space to precision fit all the inner workings of the A1. As a result, the chassis’ heavy mass reduces unwanted resonances to a minimum.

Damped Platter - Precision balanced aluminium

The damping ring on the inside adds weight and reduces resonances. In the last step the platter is turned and precision balanced to receive its fine edges and lowest wow and flutter deviations.

Connect it E - Semi-balanced RCA cable

To guarantee a perfect connection to your amp we use a high-quality phono RCA cable. Our Connect it E is a semi-balanced, low-capacitance cable, with superior shielding.

Phono Preamp - Built-in switchable preamp

If you don't have a phono preamplifier in your current HiFi setup you will benefit of the A1s built-in one. If you want to use another phono preamp, you can easily switch it off.

33/45 RPM - Ready for singles & LPs

No need to change the belt position. Easily change speed with the push of only a single button & listen to your favourite LPs as well as singles.
