The Pro-Ject 1Xpression Carbon Classic is the 6th generation of the hi-fi classic Pro-Ject 1, which was presented for the first time in 1991. No other entry-level turntable concept is more audiophile-oriented, and the current version includes a totally new carbon tone-arm with spin-off “EVO” technology.

Its innovative new gimbal design features a resonance-damping counterweight that allows best performance for any cartridge. The belt-drive design features a low-noise AC motor with effective motor decoupling and ultra-precision frequency DC-driven AC generator (like Speed Box) for ultimate speed stability.

The complex main platter construction cannot be found elsewhere in this price range and is similar to the Xtension models. Advanced thermo plastic elastomers (TPE) are used in a sandwich construction with aluminum alloy for optimized resonance behavior. The platter bearing axle is made from low tolerance chrome plated stainless steel running on Teflon bottom in a bronze bearing housing. Turntable main plinth is from low resonance MDF, which is effectively decoupled from structure-born noise by special absorber feet that use TPE technology.

Beside it`s class-leading sound quality, this turntable convinces with classic elegance and high-class black piano finish and comes pre-mounted with the Sumiko Oyster cartridge.

Please note: Not compatible with Speed Box S or Speed Box DS.
