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 otherentry-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 anycartridge. 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 elsewherein this price range and is similar to the Xtension models. Advanced thermo plastic elastomers (TPE) are used in a sandwichconstruction with steel alloy for optimised resonance behaviour. Platter bearing axle is made from low tolerance chrome platedstainless steel running on a Teflon bottom in bronze bearing housing.
Turntable main plinth is made from low resonance MDF, which effectivly is decoupled from structure-born noise by special absorber feet, that use TPE technology.
Beside it`s class-leadingsound quality, this turntable convinces with classic elegance and high-class black piano finish and nowthis package comes with the Sumiko Pearl cartridge
