1Xpression Classic S-Shape 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 proves that.
Its new innovative gimbal design features a resonance damping counterweight, that allows best performance for any cartridge. The approved belt drive design offers a 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 and is similar to the Xtension models. Advanced thermo plastic elastomers (TPE) are used in a sandwich construction with aluminium alloy for optimised resonance behaviour. The platter bearing axle is made from low tolerance chrome plated stainless steel running on Teflon bottom in a bronze bearing housing.
The turntable main plinth is from low resonance MDF, which effectively is decoupled from structure-born noise by special absorber feet, which use TPE technology.
The top grade aluminium S-Shaped tonearm convinces with a harmonic, musical and engaging sound. Because of the detachable headshell it is very easy to swap out cartridges. For your daily use you can utilize an MM system and for the pure listening pleasure you can change to an MC system.
