Pro-Ject X1 Turntable
- Speed control with electronic speed switch, delivering the ultimate speed stability
- Resonance free, 1.5 kg heavy acrylic platter
- 8.6” carbon/alu sandwich tonearm with internal damping and TPE damped counterweight
- Carefully isolated motor for less vibration and noise
Starting with the chassis, Pro-Ject have crafted the X1 from MDF, rather than standard particle boards resulting in a better sounding and feeling turntable. This chassis is then finished with 8 layers of painting and a hand-polished finish, designed to look good and remain looking good, especially when compared to the commonly used foil painting techniques.
The chassis 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 the motor is decoupled from the main plinth using a new motor suspension system.
In the X1, the motor drives a new, heavy, non-resonant Acryl 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.
The X1 is also better than its predecessors thanks to the super-stiff, perfectly tempered Carbon/Alu sandwich construction tonearm. This new 8.6” tonearm design is incredibly light and stiff, with improved resistance to external interference. Finished as one-piece, with a non-resonance-inducing headshell, the X1 tonearm can also be set for azimuth and VTA adjustment, offering the flexibility that so many people are asking for. The tonearm is then supplied with a TPE-damped counterweight, further reducing cartridge-tonearm resonances.
2M Red Cartridge
- an improved engine, which provides an increased output of 5.5 mV and an optimized sound reproduction and a high level of sonic accuracy.
- a tipped Elliptical diamond and split pole pins with a copper wire.
- the cartridge body is manufactured from Hopelex, an environment-friendly material which ensures high rigidity while eliminating unwanted resonances.
Ortofon have optimised the design for ease of mounting the cartridge, and the weight and size to fit the most common turntables on the market today. The 2M Series provides excellent compatibility when used in an assortment of playback systems and with a wide variety of phono preamps.
Pro-Ject S3B Phono Box
High End Features at an Affordable Price
When used in combination with a Pro-Ject turntable with a 5-pin balanced output and 5P to XLR cable, you can achieve a totally balanced connection, minimising noise and delivering a breathtaking analogue signal.
Until now, balanced connections were exclusive to the RS range of products. The Phono Box S3 B brings those features to more affordable products.
Fully Discrete and Symmetrical Gain Stage
The new Phono Box S3 B gain stage uses a fully discrete layout. A discrete circuit is composed of disparate electronic components, and individual devices. The amplifier section is built of single parts and doesn‘t use any integrated circuits! That makes for an extended and more costly design process but results in the best sound quality. The fully symmetrical gain stage can optimise the signal-to-noise ratios, feeding the semi-passive, RIAA equalisation stage with a clean signal to work on.
