New Generation Audiophile Entry Level Turntable
Built-in Phono Stage & Electronic Speed Switch – Made in Europe
The stylish CNC-machined plinth of the T1 features no plastic parts and is carefully manufactured to ensure there are no hollow spaces inside, therefore avoiding unwanted vibrations within the chassis. Carrying this philosophy through the design, the glass platter is also a heavy, zero-resonance design. Finally, the purpose-chosen turntable feet also do a good job of isolating the T1 from ambient vibrations around your hi-fi system. In the T1 the motor drives a belt-system, attached to a newly designed sub-platter, which is mounted into an ultra-precise 0.001mm main bearing with a hardened steel axle and brass bushing. The tonearm new tonearm has an effective length of 8.6”. This one-piece aluminium tonearm also features low-friction bearings for absolute accuracy in use. The T1 comes with a pre-adjusted Ortofon OM 5E Moving Magnet cartridge and is ready to use right out of the box. Also super shielded, semi-symmetrical, low-capacitance Pro-Ject phono cables are included.
Compared to the base T1-model, the Phono SB version includes a built-in, Pro-Ject designed, high-quality phono MM stage and an electronic speed switch between 33 and 45 RPM. For the drive system, where most alternative products may use unregulated DC motors with wide speed fluctuations, the T1 Phono SB features our proven system of an electronically regulated, precision-speed AC motor.
The Pro-Ject T1 Phono SB is supplied with a heavy, low-resonance glass platter. A significant upgrade from plastic or lightweight steel alternatives, this new platter both looks stylish & provides the consistent speed that your vinyl needs to sound its best.
In the T1 the motor drives a flat belt-system, attached to a newly designed sub-platter, which is mounted into an ultra-precise 0.001mm main bearing with a hardened steel axle and brass bushing. Resulting in reduced feedback from the bearing when compared to other turntables, and also the added advantage of not having to fiddle with the belt once it's in place!
Electronic Speed Control
To make it as easy as possible for customers to get started with the Pro-Ject T1 Phono SB an electronic speed control is integrated into the turntable - activated with a simple switch on the front-left of the plinth. This allows easy switching between the two most common speed formats, 33 and 45 RPM.
Switchable phono stage on-board
The Pro-Ject T1 Phono SB also includes an on-board switchable moving magnet phono stage. This means that the turntable is ready-to-go out of the box, but also has the flexibility for the customer to upgrade their phono stage in the future. This could be a separate phonostage, or an in-built phono in their existing amplifier.
Cartridge & Tonearm
The Pro-Ject T1 Phono SB has a straight, 8.6” tonearm with a stiff aluminium construction. This one-piece tonearm also features low-friction bearings for absolute accuracy in use. Besides the clean and stylish looks, the integrated headshell won‘t cause any additional vibrations either, a big upgrade from common screwed or glued-on headshells you normally see in turntables at this price point.
The Pro-Ject T1 Phono SB comes pre-fitted with an Ortofon OM5e Moving Magnet cartridge, which features an elliptical diamond stylus tip for accurate playback and a pre-weighted counter weight. Meaning it is ready to play, straight out of the box! No adjustments, no need to balance the tonearm.
Plinth & Finish
The plinth supporting the Pro-Ject T1 Phono SB is created using precision CNC routing, meaning there are no hollow spaces, as well as no plastic pieces, commonly found in entry-level turntables, resulting in avoidance of unwanted vibrations. The turntable is available in a stylish Piano Black finish, White and Walnut.
