Pro-Ject 1Xpression Carbon
Classic turntable with superior tone-arm 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 and the current version includes a totally new carbon tone-arm with spin-off „EVO“-technology. Its new innovative gimbal design features a resonance damping counterweight, that allows the best performance for any cartridge. The approved belt drive design offers low noise AC motor with effective motor decoupling, ultra-precision frequency DCdrivenAC 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 thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) are used in a sandwich construction with steel alloy for optimised resonance behavior. Platter bearing axle is made from low tolerance chrome-plated stainless steel running on a Teflon bottom in bronze bearing housing. Turntable main plinth is made from low resonance MDF, which effectively is decoupled from structure-borne noise by special absorber feet, that use TPE technology.
Besides its class-leading sound quality, this turntable convinces with classic elegance and high-class black piano finish and now this package comes with the Sumiko Oyster cartridge.
