The Pro-Ject Audio Systems T-Line turntables are the first to deliver true Hi-Fi sound quality at an entry-level price point. The T-Line shines with high-quality materials, a stylish look, and an incredibly lively sound. During the extensive development process, meticulous care was taken not to compromise on sound quality despite the incredible price. Currently, the T-Line is available in two versions: T1 & T1 Phono SB.
The T1 turntable is belt-driven. This precisely transfers the drive power to the newly designed subplatter, which in turn sits in the ultra-precise 0.001mm platter bearing with a hardened stainless steel shaft in a brass bushing.
The stylish, CNC machined chassis, available in high-gloss black and walnut, contains no plastic parts and is manufactured entirely without cavities, so that no unwanted vibrations in the chassis can occur. In keeping with this philosophy, the glass platter is also solid. In contrast to plastic or light steel plate plates, so unwanted resonances are effectively suppressed.
The T1 tonearm is a new tonearm version built on proven Pro-Ject designs. The 8.6″ long tonearm consists of a single piece of aluminum and is equipped with low-friction bearings so that sampling is always done with absolute precision. The pre-assembled Ortofon OM 5E quality pickup with elliptical pin-cut makes this turntable a true hi-fi playback device without compromise.
A premium Connect It E Phono Interconnect, solid hinged acrylic dust cover, and felt mat are included in the package. The T1 is the new shooting star among the affordable turntables. The production in Europe takes place in a factory with decades of tradition in turntable construction. That’s exactly what makes the T1 a true hi-fi turntable that impresses both in terms of sound and appearance.
