The latest version of Pro-Ject's classic turntable reaches new performance levels 

Following on from a prestigious series, the 1Xpression Carbon Classic is the 6th generation of the classic Pro-Ject 1, presented for the first time way back in 1991. The current version of our iconic turntable includes a totally new carbon tone-arm with spin-off EVO technology. The innovative new gimbal design features a resonance damping counterweight for the best performance with any cartridge.

The belt drive uses a low noise, decoupled AC motor with a precision frequency DC-driven AC generator for exact speed stability. We used a complex main platter construction similar to our high-end Xtension models that just can't found elsewhere in this price range. Thermo plastic elastomers (TPE) are used in a sandwich construction with aluminium  for optimised resonance behaviour. The platter bearing axle is made from low tolerance chrome plated stainless steel running on a Teflon bottom in a bronze bearing housing. The main plinth is made from low resonance MDF, which is decoupled from structure-born noise by special absorber feet using TPE technology.

But enough about the sterling build quality. The sum of all these premium components is a sound quality that will make you forget everything else... And just listen. 

This model Pro-Ject turntable is currently available to order with a pre-fitted carefully selected Ortofon cartridge. There are three cartridge options available for this model and as you step up in cartridges the discount gets bigger and so does the performance! If you would like assistance on selecting the best cartridge to suit your sonic tastes, please contact one of our staff to assist you.

CartridgeMatch technicians will install and align your selected cartridge to Ortofon specifications for the ultimate sound reproduction prior to shipping it to us. It will ship complete with a certificate showing the vital stats such as tracking force, tracking ability, crosstalk and resonance of your specific configuration.
