Online & Store
The complete entry-level turntable. The T1 Phono SB from Pro-Ject Audio is the first T-Line turntable, aiming to deliver true high-fidelity sound on a limited budget. Boasting premium materials, stylish aesthetics and a rich, lively sound, the extensive development process has ensured that there has been no compromise in the sound performance when achieving such an affordable price. With a built-in, Pro-Ject designed, high-quality MM phono stage and an electronic speed switch between 33 and 45 RPM, the T1 Phono SB is the perfect turntable for customers starting their journey into vinyl.
- European-made from the ground up, delivering exceptional build quality
- Electronic 33/45 RPM speed change
- Built-in switchable phono stage
- 8.6“ highly precise and light aluminium tonearm, pre-weighted and ready to go out of the box
- Heavy 8mm thick, low-resonance glass platter
- Pre-fitted Ortofon OM5e Moving Magnet Cartridge
The plinth supporting the Pro-Ject T1 Phono SB is created using precision CNC routing, meaning there are no hollow spaces, as well as no plastic pieces, commonly found in entry-level turntables, resulting in avoidance of unwanted vibrations. The turntable is available in a stylish Piano Black finish.
The Motor & Sub-Platter
In the T1 the motor drives a flat belt-system, attached to a newly designed sub-platter, which is mounted into an ultra-precise 0.001mm main bearing with a hardened steel axle and brass bushing. Resulting in reduced feedback from the bearing when compared to other turntables, and also the added advantage of not having to fiddle with the belt once it’s in place!
The Tonearm & Cartridge
The Pro-Ject T1 Phono SB has a straight, 8.6” tonearm with a stiff aluminium construction. This one-piece tonearm also features low-friction bearings for absolute accuracy in use. Besides the clean and stylish looks, the integrated head shell won‘t cause any additional vibrations either, a big upgrade from common screwed or glued-on head shells you normally see in turntables at this price point. The Pro-Ject T1 Phono SB comes pre-fitted with an Ortofon OM5e moving magnet cartridge, which features an elliptical diamond stylus tip for accurate playback and a pre-weighted counter weight. Meaning it is ready to play, straight out of the box! No adjustments, no need to balance the tonearm.
Switchable Phono Stage On-Board
The Pro-Ject T1 Phono SB includes an on-board switchable moving magnet phono stage. This means that the turntable is ready-to-go out of the box, but also has the flexibility for the customer to upgrade their phono stage in the future. This could be a separate phonostage, or an in-built phono in their existing amplifier.
Push Button Speed Control
To make it as easy as possible for customers to get started with the Pro-Ject T1 Phono SB an electronic speed control is integrated into the turntable – activated with a simple switch on the front-left of the plinth. This allows easy switching between the two most common speed formats, 33 and 45 RPM.
Heavy Glass Platter
The Pro-Ject T1 Phono SB is supplied with a heavy, low-resonance glass platter. A significant upgrade from plastic or lightweight steel alternatives, this new platter both looks stylish & provides the consistent speed that your vinyl needs to sound its best.

TONEAudio Jeff Dorgay “Legacy audiophiles forget that we all started somewhere, and most likely it wasn’t with a megabucks system. I can’t think of a combination that is more user friendly, with such a high level of sound and build quality than the Pro-Ject T1 Phono SB.” Hifi Pig Paul Hoskin “lt‘s a lot of kit for the price – turntable, cartridge/stylus, built in phono stage & speed control, fitment tools and accessories all included. Plus it looks and sounds amazing. Definitely good value for money.”
