No other entry-level turntable concept is more audiophile and the current version includes a totally new carbon tone-arm with spin-off „EVO“-technology. It`s new innovative gimbal design features a resonance damping counterweight, that allows best performance for any cartridge. The approved belt drive design offers low noise AC motor with effective motor decoupling, 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 aluminium alloy for optimised resonance behaviour. 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 effectivly is 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 four first-class finish options.  

 



Description

Pro-Ject 1Xpression Carbon Classic

Overview

Following on from a prestigious series, the Pro-Ject 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.
