Manual Belt-Drive Turntable with 8.6cc EVO Tonearm
Classic turntable with a superior tone-arm that reaches magical performance levels!
1-Xpression Carbon 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 & 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 for the best performance for any cartridge type. 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 & is similar to the Xtension models. Advanced thermo plastic elastomers (TPE) are used in a sandwich construction with steel alloy 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 turntable main plinth is made from low resonance MDF, which effectively 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 & high-class piano black finish. Now this package comes with the Sumiko Pearl cartridge too.
