1Xpression Carbon Classic 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 offers a more audiophile quality. The current version includes a totally new carbon tonearm with spin-off “EVO” technology. Its innovative gimbal design features a resonance damping counterweight, which encourages the best performance from any cartridge. The belt drive design offers a low noise motor with effective motor decoupling.
The complex main platter construction is a unique feature in this turntable price range, and is similar to Pro-Ject’s Xtension models. Advanced thermo plastic elastomers (TPE) are used in a sandwich construction with aluminum alloy for optimized resonance behavior. 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 from low resonance MDF, which is effectively decoupled from structure-born noise by special absorbent feet that use TPE technology. As a special feature, this package comes with a Sumiko Pearl cartridge.
1Xpression Carbon Classic is offered in a High Gloss Black Piano finish. Not compatible with Speed Box S or Speed Box DS.
